Led by artistic director Mikiko Kikuta, European Eyes on Japan is a visual arts project that has toured over thirty European Capitals of Culture since 1999. In anticipation of our European Capital of Culture year, the project extends an invitation to Maltese photographer, Alexandra Pace, from Valletta 2018 and another photographer from our twin European Capital of Culture, Leeuwarden-Fryslân 2018.

Both photographers will live and work in Japan, looking to capture the country’s lifestyle through a European lens. In 2018, an exhibition featuring the work of both artists will be hosted in Malta at Spazju Kreattiv, after which it will travel to Leeuwarden and Japan.

The exhibition will be held between the 30th of March and the 29th of April 2018 at the Spazju Kreattiv Upper Galleries, Valletta.
