May 2018

Editor’s note: It can finally be said that an appreciation for contemporary art in Malta is finally becoming more widespread. It’s also a pleasure to see the appearance of high profile shows such as the Picasso and Miró exhibition in Valletta, Manet in Gozo and three shows by the German curator Maren Richter for Valletta 2018. Things are starting to look up.

We are also blessed to have ambitious and unique galleries and art-spaces – all offering something different to the local art-scene – such as Blitz, with its regular residency programmes, Malta Contemporary Art with its consistent and adventurous shows and Valletta Contemporary – the gallery and Foundation created by architect and artist Norbert Francis Attard, which is finally open with a light installation show by Spanish artist Carlos Coronas until 25 May.

Hopefully, this year will give local artists the boost and confidence they deserve and everyone the chance to enjoy good quality art in their home country. With some more attention to good quality art and design from those in charge, maybe things will really get going here.

We hope that Artpaper helps to inspire and direct creative traffic and dialogue on the island. For more information about contributing, do please contact us on
