Macau™ is a workshop/ creative laboratory and an exhibition of the work to be carried out after a period of reflection and dialogue about the city of Macau.
The central motto will be Macao’s historical and multicultural richness and its identitarian contemporaneity. Following on its agitated flows of tourism and consumption, globalization and the changing experience of public and private spaces will be some of themes on the table, where the participants are expected to express their views, ambitions and anxieties . They will be encouraged to take a fresh look at the city, its architecture, its symbols and dynamics, and express critical and artistic outcomes through graphic design.
Photography, illustration, typography or calligraphy are welcome as tools to make artistic objects that must be synthetic and direct.
The workshop will depend on a hands-on work, where participants will develop a logo/illustration and/or a slogan/ statement for “branding” the city. The general goal is to develop a “logo” that is created in Macau and for Macau, one that communicates with the city now.
With the accompaniment of Gil Mac, each participant will finish their “logo” in bitmap or vectorial, to be inserted in the in black and white catalog, that not only will compile all the works but also will have a place reserved for a statement of each of the Artists / Citizens involved.
The final phase of the project will be to think and produce the exhibition together.We will use a video projector to pass all selected works and the final composition to the cardbordboxes and paint it in black and white. This exhibition/outdoor display will be presented in the entrance area of the Oxwarehouse, a kind of hall of fame with all “logos” of Macau™ for the city of Macau.
