Valletta Contemporary: siphoning the currents of a global art world into Malta’s capital

Valletta Contemporary (VC) is Malta's premier space for contemporary art. This gallery prompts and gives home to Malta's diverse cultural community, championing contemporary art as a catalyst for discussion, social cohesion, and cultural discovery. The META Foundation runs the independent exhibition space and art gallery, and since its opening in 2018, has become the anchor for a new cultural quarter in Malta's capital, Valletta. Located at the lower east end of the city – on the periphery and away from the main centre – VC has been an agent of regeneration and activity to a lesser-known part of the city.
