Likewise, the postgraduate art and design education at the University of Macau aims to synthesize Chinese and Western artistic concepts, to incorporate arts and technologies, and strive to transcend the conventional boundaries between art and design. Creative explorations outline China’s rich cultural traditions and speak of a global language of the contemporary era», explains the artistic manifesto for this exhibition.
