Art Additives 2018/19
28 November @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
ART ADDITIVES is a series of talks, workshops, encounters and satellite events developed around the Spazju Kreattiv contemporary visual arts programme. The initiative links directly to Fondazzjoni Kreattivita’s aim of acting as a catalyst for all forms of expression, by providing space and extending experience to reach all people and involve them in interactive participation.
Art Additives will add to the Spazju Kreattiv experience of contemporary art by generating discussion and debate, welcoming new audiences into the space, and encouraging conversation between artists and those interested in the arts.
All events are free of charge and open to a variety of audiences – from artists to students, children and families, and those with an interest in visual art. Events will be held at Spazju Kreattiv as well as at our partners’ venues around Malta and Gozo. The events will feature a variety of speakers including, curators, practitioners, artists and educators.
Upcoming Art Additives events are listed below. More will be added throughout the year.

Narrating Exile: History and memory in displacement
Date and Time: Thursday, 25 October 2018, 7pm
Venue: Studio B, Spazju Kreattiv
The talk will question how displacement operates on narratives of exile by the individuals involved, and will show that the same border crossing has relevance in structuring a memory of the exile, as argued by Marie-Caroline Saglio-Yatzimirsky in her research. The talk will also delve into the important role of The Archive of Migrant Memories.
Alessandro Triulzi will explain how the Archive, which began as an informal teaching tool derived from the migrants’ own narrations, eventually grew into an experiment in participatory video and memory-telling, aimed at empowering migrant voices to be heard, and helping Italian society to confront its rapidly changing identity from mono-cultural to multi- and inter-cultural mixed settings. On his part, David Zammit will focus on the ambivalent relations to the topic that arise in a post-colonial context such as that of Malta, as it is expressed in literary and historical documents.
The event is part of the exhibition to be [defined] at Spazju Kreattiv. With David Zammit (University of Malta), Marie-Caroline Saglio-Yatzimirsky (Inalco, Paris), Alessandro Triulzi (AMM, Rome). Virginia Monteforte (curator); Kristina Borg (exhibition designer); Alexandra Galitzine-Loumpet (cultural advisor). The exhibition is part of the Spazju Kreattiv programme and the Valletta 2018 programme.
