RE-OPENING VALLETTA CONTEMPORARY
We are pleased to hear that Valletta Contempory will reopen – having been closed since March 2020 due to Covid-19 – on the 30th April, with the first exhibition of the season showing the work of multidisciplinary artist Laura Besancon, in an exhibition titled Playful Futures.
The show will include photography, photographic-sculptural work, moving image and participatory-based works.
Valletta Contemporary (VC) was conceived, designed and realised by its Founder and Artistic Director, architect Norbert Francis Attard, who is also one of Malta’s most established contemporary artists. The gallery is run by Meta Foundation (soon to be renamed Norbert Francis Attard Foundation) – a non-profit organisation, opened officially on 13th April 2018 as Malta’s newest space for contemporary art. Located at the lower east end of Valletta – on the city’s periphery and away from the main centre – VC plays an important role in the regeneration of a lesser-known part of the city.
