Transformer, a multi-faceted, 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, will be launched today at 6pm at Blitz, St Lucy Street, Valletta, with a public forum, followed by drinks at 8pm. The event will end at 9.30pm.

Produced by Blitz, Valletta, and Central St Martin’s, London, the project includes curatorial research, artistic resi­dencies, public talks, workshops, an online platform and a multi-site exhibition in spaces across Malta during the European Capital of Culture 2018.

There will be a project introduction by Transformer’s creative directors, Emma Talbot and Mick Finch, followed by a round table discussion with Transformer’s artists and artist-run organisations at 6.45pm, and a panel discussion, which will consider how the participating international artist-run organisations and artists involved with Transformer are operating in the con­tem­porary art context.

There will then be the opening of the Transformer multi-site exhibition.

The multi-site exhibition will run between tomorrow and October 14. Kosmas Nikolaou (Athens)’s exhibits will be at Villa Bologna, Attard; Ro Caminal (Barcelona)’s at St James Cavalier, Valletta; Laila Hida (Marrakech)’s at the Valletta Design Cluster Water Fountain, Valletta; Mohamed Fariji (Casablanca)’s at St Paul Square and 1st Ħamrun Scouts Group, Ħamrun; Fenetreproject – Dustin Cauchi, Fran­cesca Mangion’s (Blitz and the MUŻA collection, Valletta) at Blitz, Valletta.
