Written by Ben Blaschke

MGM has announced the establishment of a major art collection to be permanently hosted at MGM Cotai.

Commissioned by MGM, the collection will be unveiled at the resort’s opening later this year featuring 300 works designed to seamlessly integrate with MGM Cotai’s public spaces. It will include antique carpets dating from the Qing Dynasty, modern and contemporary Asian paintings and sculptures by renowned artists, freshly-commissioned works by local and regional rising talents and large-scale installations. Contributing artists include Hsiao Chin, Liu Dan, Liu Kuosung, Macau’s own Ung Si Meng, Xue Song and many more.

“The collection will take visitors on a journey of discovery as soon as they step into MGM Cotai,” the company said in a press release. “MGM’s forthcoming resort is set to be an architectural icon representing local culture and cutting-edge design. From paintings to installations, wall art to ancient carpets, visitors will travel through time as they walk through the property, captivated by sensory experiences as they explore the stories behind each work of art. The medium, the inspiration, and the precise location of each art piece is being carefully planned and meticulously put together.”
