The Macao Museum of Art is among 24 museums across the Greater Bay Area (GBA) that have formed an alliance to stage joint exhibitions and strengthen ties with museums nationwide and internationally.
Other museums in the group include the Guangdong Museum, Shenzhen Museum, and the Hong Kong Museum of History.
“These museums are complementary. They can work together to present high-quality shows through the alliance,” Liu Shuguang, the head of the Chinese Museums Association, told China Daily.
According to the paper, museums in China’s SARs have greater experience in areas of international cooperation, while museums elsewhere in the GBA have closer links with institutions around the country.
“We have long cooperated with museums from Hong Kong and Macao. The establishment of the museum alliance in this area will offer more cooperation, the director of Guangdong Museum, Xiao Haiming, told China Daily.
As an example of such cooperation, he drew attention to the joint exhibition with the Macao Museum of Art staged in Guangdong earlier this year, Focus: Acclimation of Art Between China and the West in the 18th-19th Century.
