The first-ever “1+3” Exhibition runs from November 19 to December 6 at the China – Portuguese-speaking Countries Commercial and Trade Service Platform Complex. It is the final activity of the 12th Cultural Week of China and Portuguese-speaking Countries, the latter organised by the Permanent Secretariat of the Forum for Economic and Trade Co-operation between China and Portuguese-speaking Countries (Macao). The “1+3” Exhibition provides an opportunity for the public to get to know and experience the culture and artistic skills of China and Portuguese-speaking Countries.
This is the first exhibition activity to be held at the China – Portuguese-speaking Countries Commercial and Trade Service Platform Complex. The “1+3” Exhibition features an exhibition of Forum Macao’s achievements, and three exhibitions by artists.
The exhibition presents the achievements of Forum Macao’s work, the history of cooperation between China and Portuguese-speaking Countries, and cultural products from Portuguese-speaking Countries. Three artists have been invited to exhibit at the Complex. They are: Raquel Gralheiro from Portugal; Alexandre Marreiros, a Macao artist; and Bernardino Soares from Timor-Leste. The works of Raquel Gralheiro and Alexandre Marreiros show dynamic and dramatic art via the medium of painting. Bernardino Soares works through photography, to show the cultural customs of Timor-Leste.
To help deepen the public’s understanding of culture and the arts in the context of the Portuguese-speaking Countries, guided tours are to be provided at the venue. There are also available, the following interactive sessions: “Exchange with Artist”; and “Meeting with Delegates from Portuguese-speaking Countries”.
The exhibitions will be held in the Complex in accordance with the epidemic-prevention guidelines published by Macao’s Health Bureau.
