Mozambique at the center of Fórum Macau's 13th Cultural Week starting this Friday

The works of Mozambican painter José Estêvão Manhiça will be on show, starting Friday, in Macau, as part of the 13th China and Portuguese-speaking Countries Cultural Week.

Called "Different Encounters," this exhibition will be the fourth in the series "Lusophone Polychromies," which visits several areas of plastic arts by authors from Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, Sao Tome and Principe, East Timor and Macau, according to the website of the Forum for Economic and Trade Cooperation between China and Portuguese-speaking Countries (Macau).

The works on display "represent different phases of the author's artistic life," which "reflect the role of human coexistence for the well-being of society, but also seek to convey a critical and educational message that will serve as a lesson to new generations," the site says.

Earlier, the gallery of the Service Platform Complex for Commercial Cooperation between China and Portuguese-speaking Countries, showed the plastic works of Ana Jacinto Nunes (Portugal), Eduardo Bentub (Cape Verde) and Guilherme Carvalho (Sao Tome and Principe).

After Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau follows with the painter Ismael Hipólito Djata, from September 23 to October 10.

The works by José Estevão Manhiça will be on show until the 19th of this month, and at the same time there will be on-site workshops of dances (Tufo, Xigugo and Marrabenta) and traditional games (Pindjonce, Neca and N'Txuvha), organized by the Association of Friends of Mozambique in Macau.

The 13th Cultural Week of Forum Macau, in 'offline' and 'online' formats, runs until December 31.
