This weekend is the final chance to visit Valletta 2018’s closing multi-site exhibition Constellation Malta, before it closes its doors on Sunday 9th December.
A special €20 ticket grants visitors access to seven heritage sites around Malta and Gozo which are part of the exhibition, including Fort St Elmo and the National Museum of Archaeology in Valletta, Tarxien Temples, Ħaġar Qim and Mnajdra Visitor Centre in Qrendi, the National Museum of Natural History in Mdina, Ġgantija Visitor Centre and Ta’ Kola Windmill in Xagħra, Gozo.
The Church of St Mary Magdalene in Valletta, the crypt at St Catherine’s Parish Church in Żejtun and The Arches in Senglea are also part of the exhibition, and may be visited free of charge.
As the name suggests, Constellation Malta takes the shape of a constellation across the Maltese Islands, bringing painting, sculpture, embroidery, photography, video, light and sound installations, performances and site-specific interventions to prominent heritage sites, community venues, and public spaces across the Maltese Islands.
Curated by Rosa Martinez — who was also the first female director of the prestigious Venice Biennale — Constellation Malta is one the largest exhibitions on the Valletta 2018 European Capital of Culture Programme, featuring the work of 11 renowned local and international artists.
The list of world famous artists in the contemporary art industry, includes Marina Abramović, Chiharu Shiota, Forensic Oceanography and Architecture, Kyung-Jin Cho, Austin Camilleri, Yoshitomo Nara, Saskia Calderón, Eulalia Valldosera, and Tania Berta Judith. The exhibition also sees the participation of the Malta Fancy Poultry and Pigeon Club as well as a collection of anonymous photographs portraying ‘readymades’ in Malta.
