We are all Macao people
A multi-angle creative exhibition inspired by neglected groups
Some would say: “Modern art is difficult to understand, no matter how hard I try”. Yet some others would say, “There’s not much innovation in contemporary art, all has been tried”. But quite on the contrary, some people think that there is still a lot to be achieved in contemporary art and that one can even profit from it, considering the good sales of Chinese artists’ paintings. “If you just get one sold, wow! It can sustain you through all your remaining life.”
Is that so?
Absolutely. In fact, many people do not understand the relationship between artistic creation and people in the community, which can be used to convey positive messages and inspiration to the general public.
Can artistic creation play a more constructive role in contemporary society and culture?
As a group of young artists from Macao whose creativity has not yet been manipulated by the market, do we need to do more creative efforts to discover new sources of inspiration and the motivational power of art?
This year, the Gallery Ox Warehouse of the Old Ladies’ House Art Space will keep its focus on the integration and exploration of community culture, concentrating on neglected groups of different communities. Through the eyes of a young artistic generation with different backgrounds, we hope to discover, recognize and reflect on the different living conditions of these disadvantaged groups. Meanwhile, through a multi-angle exploration, integration and creation, we will try to find some controversial topics for the general public reflection on some prevalent yet ignored social phenomena. Such creative exploration will give every participating artist a rare opportunity to re-examine, adjust and set his/her own attitude towards creation.
We wish to open up extended spaces for creation, which is also Ox Warehouse’s current development direction.
