The Amagao Gallery at the Artyzen Grand Lapa Macau officially opened its second exhibition yesterday in celebration of Portugal Day (officially Day of Portugal, Camões, and the Portuguese Communities).

Commemorating the death of Portuguese poet and national literary icon Luis de Camões on 10 June 1580, Portuguese National Day is celebrated annually by Portuguese people around the world. 

Titled Lusografia, the exhibition showcases 70 different artworks – engraving, serigraphy and printing arts – by 24 Portuguese artists, including Paula Rego, who was described by the BBC as the artist who helped “change the world with her imaginative and magical artwork”, as well as Vieira da Silva, a pioneer of European abstract expressionism who is known for her obsession with perspective, according to Artyzen Grand Lapa Macau. 

“It is an extraordinary way to celebrate the National Day of Portugal, and the arts and culture within,” said Amagao Gallery Managing Partner José I. Duarte. 

Artyzen Grand Lapa Macau General Manager Rutger Verschuren said: “We are thrilled to present this inspiring art exhibition, making Macao’s art scene even more vivid and vibrant. Art brings colour to our lives, and amuses us.” 

Located in the hotel’s ground-floor main lobby, Amagao Gallery is managed by Galeria 57 (Macau). The Lusografia exhibition is open 12 pm–8 pm daily except Mondays until 4 September. Admission is free.
