“Red December – Exhibition of Carlos Marreiros”, organized by the Cultural Affairs Bureau, will be inaugurated on Friday, 8 November,  at the Tap Seac Gallery. All are welcome to attend the opening ceremony and visit the exhibition.

This exhibition features artist Carlos Marreiros’ latest large-scale artwork “Red December” and a series of paintings from his sketchbooks. “Red December”, a large composition embedded with detail, depicts a scene where Chinese and Western historical figures from different periods of time gather together and indulge in pleasant conversations with each other. The work visualises the utopia in the artist’s mind, where different cultures exist harmoniously in an inclusive society. In addition, the paintings from his sketchbooks give an account of the artist’s creative and reflective process over the years, allowing the audience to take a close look at his sources of inspiration and traverse his creative world which features both Chinese and Western cultures.

“Red December – Exhibition of Carlos Marreiros” will be held from 9 November 2019 to 13 February 2020 at the Tap Seac Gallery, located at No. 95, Avenida do Conselheiro Ferreira de Almeida. The exhibition is open daily from 10am to 9pm, including public holidays. Admission is free.
