Ngħaddu ż-Żmien


The whole culture is telling you to hurry,
while the art tells to take your time.
Always listen to the art.

A Portuguese artist living in Malta and a Maltese artist living in Portugal will interpret the culture and countries where they are currently based.

‘Ngħaddu ż-Żmien’ is an exhibition of paintings by Patarra & Ed Dingli, curated by Andrew Borg Wirth at the Malta Society of Arts, Palazzo de La Salle, Valletta, from the 27th of June until the 18th of July.

As both countries face a wave of homogenisation in the wake of globalisation, the artists explore the everyday nuances of quotidian culture which give a country and a people their identity, and try to find their place within it all.

A rooftop concert at the Catholic Institute in Floriana will take place on Sunday 7th July, featuring Maltese and Portuguese talent Mariele Zammit, Joe Debono, Acácio Barbosa and Rachelle Deguara. Tickets from Showshappening.

A project supported by the Archbishop’s Delegate for Culture, Uber, Rubicon, Frendo Advisory, APS Bank, Stretta Beer, Attard & Co and iLab Photo.
