The Macao Museum of Art chose Mio for the Venice event from a list of about 40 names, for “remarkable achievements both in terms of artistic production and his contribution to the promotion of the arts”. The exhibition will be an illustration of the abstract painter’s work dedicated for decades to research and the practice of what is called Neo-Orientalism.
The second Macao Pavilion room at the Biennale is dedicated to just this theme: Exploration of Neo-Orientalism. Here the visitor will be able to see the documentary which recently opened in Macao MIO PANG FEI, by Pedro Cardeira, about the artist’s life and career. The second pavilion will exhibit two calligraphic works – Harmony and Character Notes and the Post-calligraphy series.
