The exhibition by acclaimed German photographer Candida Höfer has been extended until 19 May, according to a statement from the Cultural Affairs Bureau (known by its Portuguese initials IC). 

The exhibition, titled Epic Gaze, is being held at the Macao Museum of Art, and the extra time will “allow more members of the public to appreciate the first-class photographic works,” the IC said, noting the show’s popularity with locals and tourists alike.

Höfer is widely recognised as one of the most important conceptual photographers of the latter half of the 20th century, and has won numerous international awards.

Epic Gaze, which opened in December last year and was initially scheduled to end in early March, is her first major exhibition in Macao. Its large-format photos – some two metres high – are of depopulated architectural interiors and feature ingenious use of lighting.

The IC’s statement noted that the museum was offering limited-edition exhibition souvenirs to people sharing images of Epic Gaze on social media. 

Guided tours are available in Cantonese each Saturday at 3:00 pm. The museum is closed on Mondays.
