Marie Gallery 5 is to re-launch its space and digital presence.
Originally founded in 2016, Marie Gallery 5 represented some of the most promising artists and exhibited their work both locally and internationally. The gallery’s key initiative was to provide opportunities to artists entering the global art market.
Maria Galea, also the founder of the new start-up ARTZID, founded the gallery on the principle that galleries are a voice for artists, giving them exposure, credibility, and ultimately enhancing their career. Located in the heart of Mosta, it is described as “one of a very few private art galleries – completely dedicated to showcasing some of the finest contemporary art in Malta”. Having represented local artists in international art fairs in New York, Miami and Dubai, the gallery has established itself as a space dedicated to cultivating and promoting local artists through a new lens.
Between 2017 and 2018, Marie Gallery 5 launched a new partnership with a well-known international hospitality company, Iniala. Together they opened a cluster of galleries across Malta, as well as one in Thailand called Iniala 5. During this time, the gallery was part of an intense exhibition calendar showcasing both local and international artists every month.
Today the gallery moves back to its origins and re-launches its space with over 24 emerging and established artists, brought together through their work. Marie Gallery 5 was born out of a personal aspiration to give new opportunities to artists, acting as a connecting point, whilst increasing the awareness of the value of art to the market. Today the gallery continues on its journey to promote and connect artists to new opportunities whilst showcasing curated works to its esteemed clients and new art lovers.
