Arts Council Malta, under the auspices of the Ministry for National Heritage, the Arts and Local Government, for the 4th time running, has been entrusted to act as the Commissioner and the Contracting Authority of the Malta Pavilion at the 60th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.
The Malta Pavilion is approximately 285 square metres with exposed brick walls. It is located at the Artiglierie in the Arsenale Area and it is the same location which hosted the Malta Pavilion during the 57th, 58th and 59th International Art Exhibitions at the Venice Biennale. The Curatorial Teams representing Malta at the 2017, 2019 and 2022 editions attracted considerable attention by the international press, with outstanding reviews. These included coverage in prestigious titles such as “The Observer”, which listed it as one of the five best pavilions, and “The Culture Trip” which also listed it as one of “The 10 National Pavilions You Can’t Miss at the Venice Biennale”.
