MGM is committed to promoting art and culture to the public. With the belief of art and life are inseparable, MGM presents Celebrating Life – Ju Ming Living World Sculpture Selling Exhibition to kick start as the company’s first public art project of the year. From now to April 7, the internationally renowned artist’s Living World series will be exhibited at MGM Cotai. The series features Ju’s survey on human relationships with an emphasis on the aesthetic concept of merging art into life, and life into art, which is in perfect harmony with MGM’s mission in making art more accessible to the public.
The Living World series is one of the most iconic series of Ju Ming’s, conveying Ju’s exploration on human sentiments using vivid and lively images and postures, with numbers of works particularly depicting traditional family values. Inspired by his multicultural experiences and over 30 years of development, Ju Ming applies both traditional and contemporary materials, such as wood and stainless steel in this series. The wood carving sculpture is the most significant, for Ju carves directly on a log with his signature sharp cutting strokes that create one-of-a-kind works. MGM is proud to exhibit over 40 pieces of unique wood carvings made by Ju, including painted wood, black and white painted wood, as well as wood relief sculptures, making it an extraordinary, must-see exhibition.
