S P E K T R U M
May 26, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - June 18, 2017 @ 11:00 pm CEST
S P E K T R U M is an Art Exhibition created by a group of seven Bachelor of Education (Honours) students majoring in Art. This exhibition marks the end of a four-year journey in which the students have been working earnestly on this exhibition since the summer of 2016.
The starting points of this project were various works from the National Museum of Fine Arts in Valletta. Every artist chose different art works from the museum in relation to a particular theme. The chosen themes include war, social justice, ethical consumerism, religious tolerance, gender equality, the inner child and existence.
Each artist has taken a modern approach to their work using both conventional and unconventional media to realise and create a variety of experiential, visual and at times interactive and colourful works. These include installation art, photography, mixed media and sculpture.
Participants started off by exploring the different paintings in the National Museum of Fine Arts whilst at the same time researching and sketching their theme. Artists went through a phase of experimentation and documentation of different ideas and information which eventually gave rise to the realization of S P E K T R U M.
The artists are: Abigail Attard, Nicolai Curmi, Cristina Formosa, Lara Govè, Sharon Mc Lean, Gabriella Mifsud and John Paul Muscat.
This exhibition will be open to the public between the 26th of May and the 18th of June at the Malta Maritime Museum in Birgu. Everyone is welcome to visit and interact with the works which are going to be exhibited.
Sincere thanks go to: Dr Raphael Vella, Dr Vince Briffa, Mr Pierre Portelli, Mr Matthew Galea, Ms Charmaine Zammit and Dr Trevor Borg for their continuous guidance during the preparation of this exhibition.
