Art Macao 2023: Macau Casinos Transform into Art Galleries

Macau’s elite six casino operators are once more championing the local government’s initiative, dubbed “Art Macao.” Having been inaugurated in 2019, this vibrant and diverse season of cultural festivity and art-related happenings is scheduled to stretch from this month until October.

Casinos Become Cultural Hubs for Art Exhibitions

Each of these gaming magnates will host stunning art exhibitions within their plush properties during the tenure, as divulged by the city’s Cultural Affairs Bureau at a press event on Wednesday. Emphasizing the richness and breadth of this event, Art Macao: Macao International Art Biennale 2023 will play host to a staggering total of 30 art exhibitions. These events will be dispersed citywide, proudly showcasing the creations of over 200 talented artists, as per the official press statement.

Macau’s government acknowledges the significance of cultural activities and sports tourism as potent factors contributing to the city’s efforts for economic diversification. In addition, these elements played pivotal roles in evaluating gaming companies’ bids for the 10-year Macau gaming concessions that started in January, granted the previous year.

Collectively, the six Macau operators have committed to invest an eye-popping MOP108.7 billion (US$13.48 billion) in non-gaming activities and expanding overseas customer markets during these fresh concessions. If citywide annual gross gaming revenue attains MOP180 billion, they have agreed to bolster their pledged concession-related investment by up to 20 percent for the coming decade.
