On November 12th, 2023, MACA held our 2023 Year End Party CONFABULATION in Shangghai. Taking place during the Shanghai art season, the MACA Year End Party is renowned as an annual invitation-only social gathering for participants in the contemporary art industry. This year, we offered an even more exhilarating experience by opening it to the public for the first time. We also partnered with Shanghai’s most popular club, SYSTEM, as well as the highly anticipated emerging label, SHAWAM.

As MACA celebrated its third anniversary, the annual party, while maintaining its unswerving commitment to a show-stopping and peerless style, made bolder moves with crossovers. CONFABULATION not only gathered art professionals from China and abroad, but also assembled a star-studded lineup of active practitioners and performers in stand-up comedy, fashion, publishing, the LGBTQ+ community, dance, music, and more. At the end of the 2023 Shanghai art season, the party was an unprecedented blast of art. We feel deeply honored to have presented this all-encompassing party as the finale of the Shanghai art season, offering friends both within and outside the art industry a short yet refreshing break for their minds and bodies from their daily routines.

We would like to extend special thanks to Shanghai Tiangong Branding Agency and Allcoconut for their generous support.
