GalaxyArt, the non-profit arts space managed by GEG Foundation, is collaborating with Macau artist Yuen Wai-Ip to present the oil painting exhibition “5 a.m.” from now until February 5, 2023.
Inviting visitors to embark on a colorful visual journey, the exhibition will display a collection of over 40 oil paintings created by Yuen between the 1990’s and 2020’s, which capture his reflections of his life experiences and also of the society he lives with. The exhibition guides viewers to contemplate humanity and view things from different perspectives, and encourages them to use the artworks to reconnect with themselves in this fast-paced life, to stay grounded and focused, as artists do, and to think critically about things around them.
The exhibition is now open to the public for free, from 10AM to 10PM daily, with onsite guided tour services for all visitors. Starting from October, a series of art enlightenment workshops for children, entitled “The Clumsy Artist”, will be launched and made available to the public for free. Through these workshops, children can learn multifaceted ways of appreciating art, gain a good understanding of colors, create artworks with different tools and media and develop artistic creativity in their lives.
As usual, GalaxyArt will also provide educational guided tour services for students from local tertiary education institutions, secondary and primary schools, with differentiated content based on the age of the students. There will also be seminars with students from local tertiary education institutions, to share with them insights and experiences relating to organizing and planning art exhibitions in integrated resort. For inquiries about school visits to GalaxyArt, please contact the Foundation at (853) 2822 8160.
A firm believer that there is unlimited potential in art and culture, GEG Foundation will continue to promote the development of arts and culture in Macau through GalaxyArt and GEG Arts & Culture Initiative, and nurture young people by giving them more chances to broaden their horizons in arts and culture.
