Land Politics - I AM
March 19 - 23
IAM: Institute of Art Malta Language Program is proud to present the final show from its residency programme Land Politics; a collective exhibition of international and local artists curated by Chiara Cassar.
Exhibiting artists are:
Takatoku Nishi, Akira Taniguchi, Takahiro Ueda, JP Migneco, Aidan Celeste, Margerita Pulé.
Land Politics looks into the exploration, development and structure of what makes up our surroundings, which are highly influential in art and life.
In practice, we negotiate structural dogmatic laws to interpret our surroundings and environment. Landscape is therefore a highly relevant protagonist in contemporary art practices.
Land Politics seeks to explore that further, diverting from the traditional understanding of Landscape that stereotypically evokes feelings of time, the sublime, beauty and historical references; but rather to view all topics that influence art from our environment that are geographical, psychological, architectural, political, digital and aesthetic discourses.
The collective presents a diversity of concepts and new medium from paintings to light installation, showcasing a wide variety of artistic contemporary practices.
Land Politics is proudly sponsored by Madoka Japanese Restaurant, Wembley Store, Club Malta Associazione Italiana Sommelier, Bonju, Sullivan Travel Centre and Malta University Language school.
Join us for the opening night of Land Politics where we will be serving some excellent Japanese food and Italian wine provided by our generous sponsors; Club Italia Associazione Italiana Sommelier, Wembley Store, and Madoka Japanese Restaurant!
The opening night will take place on the 19th of March at 19:00-22:00 at Valletta Contemporary. It will continue to run from the 20th-23rd March opening daily from 12:00-19:00.
