To herald in the Year of the Snake, MGM and “One Central Macau” will jointly present “Glorious China, Auspicious Macau – Wang Kaifang’s Gold Brick Exhibition,” created by China’s artist Wang Kaifang. According to MGM, Wang is “one of China’s most celebrated contemporary artists,” whose success as an artist has ranged from his work in architecture, gardening, and landscaping, to sculpture, interiors, and graphics. He has completed over 300 works of art, including a commissioned piece for China’s space development program, entitled “Crystal Cockroach,” that travelled with the “Shenzhou 8” spacecraft — a first for Chinese contemporary art. Wang has also received awards such as the “Asia Pin-up Design Awards” Gold Prize and the Interior Design Cover Figure of the Year. The exhibition, which has never been shown outside mainland China until now, takes place from February 7, 2013 to April 2, 2013, and will be staged at various locations throughout MGM MACAU and “One Central Macau.” Wang has produced 12 gold bricks for the upcoming Macau installation; each piece, the tallest of which standing at a lofty 2.5 meters, has a different story and rationale, serving as a bridge between the audience and the artist.
