Themes of repetition, ritual, truth and collective action were on the agenda for Blitz in 2017 through a programme of exhibitions, workshops, and public exchange. Identity and data also emerged as a concern for both Maltese and visiting artists, resulting in a rigorous examination of how we see ourselves and others culturally and historically, from multiple perspectives.
Announcing the incoming artists for the 2018 Blitz Residency Programme. This year’s international open call for applications attracted a record 200 applications. Our star selection panel has made its decision and we are thrilled to announce the four successful applicants.
Blitz (with the support of European Capital of Culture Valletta 2018, MT) and Artist in Residence Programme AIR Wro (under the auspices of Wroclaw 2016 Office, PL) are jointly announcing an open call for artists, curators, researchers and cultural managers living and working in Malta to undertake a one-month residency in Wroclaw.
Reinventing the wheel is the first solo show exhibition of the Maltese artist Aaron Bezzina in Athens as the recipient of the inaugural Blitz-Snehta Residency. In the fall of 2017, Snehta opened its doors to eight international contemporary art practitioners to live and work in Athens and Aaron formed part of this intake.
Transformer is a multifaceted, two-year project that builds relationships between the Maltese artistic context and international cultural networks through a series of border-crossing curatorial and artistic exchanges. The project includes curatorial research, artist residencies, public talks, workshops, a website and a multi-site exhibition in spaces across Malta during the European Capital of Culture 2018.
