Anamnesis

Space C, Spazju Kreattiv St James Cavalier, Castille Place, Valletta

The project is an introspective visual art exhibition by Clint Calleja, consisting of paintings, sculptures, photography and installations revolving around the theme of ‘Trauma and Memory’.

“WHAT’CHU LOOKING AT? WHO YOU SPEAKING WITH?” A GAZING ALL ROUND

Space A, Spazju Kreattiv St James Cavalier, Castille Place, Valletta

The continent known as Africa is a complex, intricate and unfathomable entity. There has always been this futile quest, particularly in the west, to totalize Africa. We are adequately informed, especially through the work of the multitude of creatives that operate from Africa and her Diaspora, that it is impossible to do so. So, in what ways are contemporary African artists expressing their many lived realities across a continent made up of fifty-four (54) countries in this current experience?

INSULAR

Space B, Spazju Kreattiv St James Cavalier, Castille Place, Valletta

INSULAR is a photographic project that focuses on the everyday life and destiny of young men from the African diaspora, recently settled on the island of Malta. Offering a sensitive portrait of this new community, the weaving of portraits, landscapes and still lives sets a poetical narration that attempts to create a sense of belonging; the semblance of a home in the making between here and there.

When the Moon Waxes Red

Space A, Spazju Kreattiv St James Cavalier, Castille Place, Valletta

In an age of advanced climate crises, the earth should be read as if it were a script that needs to be interpreted. This links to traditional knowledge, shifts in perspectives and norms and raises the question: What if we pluralised our ideas about the world and acknowledged that the current understanding of the future that has dominated the world for centuries simply leads to a dead(ly) end?

Transparencies of the soul

Space A, Spazju Kreattiv St James Cavalier, Castille Place, Valletta

Lucia Vallejo is Basque and has a background in art history, which is not something that should be overlooked. She came to sculpture by way of painting, not in the sense that she had been a painter, but in the sense that she had studied painting’s mechanisms and its structure.

Backlot

Space C, Spazju Kreattiv St James Cavalier, Castille Place, Valletta

Backlot is a new exhibition by Charlie Cauchi. She uses video work, photographic images, built structures and more to break down the complex possibilities of Malta’s on-screen cinematic (mis)representation.
