Organized by the Macao Museum of Art (MAM) under the auspices of the Cultural Affairs Bureau, and co-organized by the Architects Association of Macau, the “Connectivities: Living beyond the boundaries – Macao and the Greater Bay Area, the 17th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia – Works of the Collateral Event of Macao, China”, will be inaugurated on 18 June (Friday), at the Taipa Houses, at 6:30pm. The exhibition team comprises the curator, Carlos Marreiros, the renowned Macao architect, and young local architects and urban planners Ho Ting Fong, Che Chi Hong, Lao Man Si and Chan Ka Tat. The four exhibits, titled “Connected”, “Connectivity is from point to point!”, “Boundary Verticalisation – the Collision of Two Different Urban System” and “Coexistence”, present the relationship between architecture, land reclamations, collective memory and urban life from multiple perspectives, offering visitors a picture of the cross-border life in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
The “17th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia – Exhibits from Macao, China” was opened to the public on 22 May in Venice, Italy. Considering the epidemic prevention and safety, the physical works are exhibited in Macao and the related works are presented at the Macao-China Pavilion in Venice through electronic media, showcasing the concept of the works, the assembly process and interviews with the exhibition team, allowing visitors from both places to view the exhibition “simultaneously”, breaking the limitations of space and distance, and expanding the possibilities of “connectivity” through technology.
