Malta Biennale 2024 call for artists

MUŻA (National Community Art Museum), on behalf of Heritage Malta and Arts Council Malta, are launching a call for artists and art pavilions to form part of the first Malta Art Biennale. MUŻA is inviting interested applicants to submit challenging, curious and immersive experiences which will take place in Malta between March and May 2024.

The theme is “white sea olive groves”, a call to formulate new narratives for the region; a provocative artistic initiative inviting a rethink of global mindsets about art and society, emanating from the deep south of the European continent.

The call for proposals is open to local and international artists, curators, curatorial teams, project managers, and more who wish to present projects on the biennale theme. It is also open to interested pavilions applying from any country or region while the curatorial teams may be composed of a mixture of curators, architects, designers, project managers and curatorial assistants. (Read more about the pavilion call here.)
