Artists interested in joining the 2005 Macau Annual Exhibition of Visual Art during the Macau Arts Festival should submit their entries between October 29 and 31.

The theme of the exhibition is “Macau’s Cultural Heritage - Beyond History,” which reflects the Cultural Institute’s desire that artists employ the concept of cultural heritage broadly defined to conduct an artistic inquiry into contemporary issues concerning Macau’s culture as it moves into the future, thereby stimulating reflection on the direction of the development of the arts and culture in Macau.

Each participant may submit a maximum of three entries (individual works or ensembles) in different visual media. Participants with entries related to installations and sculptures should submit a photo together with the application form between October 29 and 31 and have their works submitted directly to the Tap Seac Gallery on November 9 and 10.

Selected entries will be announced on www.macauart.net on November 15. Entries will be returned to participants on November 16 and 17 at the Tap Seac Gallery.

The selection of entries will be held on November 11 and 12 at the Tap Seac Gallery and the process will be opened to the public. The selection panel will designate the ten most outstanding entries as the Ten Best Entries of the 2005 Annual Macau Exhibition of Visual Art. Artworks included in this top ten list will be recommended for inclusion in special exhibitions and to represent Macau in future overseas exhibitions and cultural events.

Since Macau’s return to Chinese administration in 1999, the Cultural Institute of the Macau SAR Government has held the Macau Annual Exhibition of Visual Art each year during the annual Macau Arts Festival. Four exhibitions have been held to date.

The Institute will invite individuals representing different fields of expertise from various regions outside Macau to form the selection panel.
