MGM China Holdings Limited continues to uphold their dedication to "Originality + Innovation" as they bring renowned Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos' remarkable art installation, "Valkyrie Miss Dior," to MGM COTAI.
Building on their previous collaboration in 2015, MGM maintains its commitment to cultural tourism and fostering global artistic exchanges by introducing world-class artworks to Macau. This year, the city-wide event "Art Macao: Macao International Art Biennale 2023" serves as the platform to showcase "Valkyrie Miss Dior," a vibrant depiction of feminine figures in Nordic mythology, celebrating feminism and its significance.
During the exhibition's light-up ceremony, Pansy Ho, chairperson and executive director of MGM China Holdings Limited, highlighted MGM's pioneering efforts in blending art and tourism. The event brought together a prominent lineup of individuals who share a passion for promoting art and tourism, all gathered at MGM COTAI to immerse themselves in the "Art of Living" ethos, which showcases renowned artworks that resonate with the essence of tourism and lifestyle.
The strong foundation of collaboration between MGM and Joana Vasconcelos began with their first project, "Valkyrie Octopus," in 2015. This iconic installation, situated at MGM MACAU, symbolises Macau's openness and its position as a hub for Sino-Portuguese cultural exchange. Notably, it is the first-ever public installation commissioned within a resort in Macau.
For a limited time, visitors have the opportunity to witness the monumental artwork that measures 24 metres long and seven metres tall up close until Oct. 8. Don't miss this extraordinary exhibition at MGM COTAI for a truly immersive art and travel experience.
