The first exhibition of AFA this year is opening! This exhibition is the first solo exhibition for Crystal W. M. Chan after she completed her degree in School of Visual Arts. As an Asian, female artist, she drew attention with her work while studying at art school in New York. In 2017 she won the Will Barnet Award issued by the New York National Club and held two solo exhibitions in New York in 2018.
Leaving Macau to go to New York, through the four years of studying and hard work, Crystal has blurred the boundaries of the shapes she is creating. It is her way of breaking through limitations. The creation of her works are more matured, though the appearance of her paintings is somehow ambiguous but the emotional power of her work has revealed itself in clarity during this process of artistic pursuit. Alice Kok is the curator for this exhibition.
When: February 27, 2019–April 2, 2019
Where: Macau Art Garden, 265 Avenida do Dr. Rodrigo Rodrigues, Macau
