For the current exhibition, “An Atlas of the Difficult World,” the Macalline Center of Art (MACA) is thrilled to host a handmade stained glass workshop led by Tete, founder of ARTstainedglass, and her instructor assistant, Junjun. Inspired by the oblong shape and mosaic techniques of Wu Tsang’s artwork Untitled (Window #3), ARTstainedglass has designed an accessory mounted with stained glass mirror specifically for the workshop participants. With a singular and unique design, this piece exemplifies the harmonious blend of visual aesthetics and practicality. Under the instructors' guidance, participants will design and handcraft their own stained glass pieces, using their artistic intuition and imagination to explore endless combinations of colors and shapes. They will also learn glass polishing, copper foiling, and mounting techniques, feeling the warmth of a handcrafted glass product taking shape in their hands.

The Macalline Center of Art (MACA) is a non-profit art institution located in the 798 Art District of Beijing and officially inaugurated its space on January 15, 2022. Occupying a two-story building with a total area of 900 square meters, MACA unites artists, curators, and other art and cultural practitioners from around the world. Through its diverse, ongoing, and collaborative approaches, the Center establishes a new site on the contemporary art scene. Guided by the “work of artists” and backed by interdisciplinary research, the Center aims to bring together a community passionate about art and devoted to the “contemporary” moment so as to respond proactively to our rapidly evolving times.
