Event Description:

The Gabriel Caruana Foundation’s SPRING Artistic Programme 2022 – 2024 is hosting its first collective exhibition, Beneath the Surface, featuring new works by Samuel Ciantar, Sarah Chircop and Isaac Warrington. Beneath the surface is conceptually developed and curated by Co-Creative Director and Curator Elyse Tonna. Tonna reveals that “collectively and separately the artists have unfolded different meanings and associations to the acts of resistance, resilience and rebellion. Within the exhibition, the surface takes on a metaphorical meaning and transforms itself into an opportunity for investigation across various happenings, most often beyond our control.” The exhibition will launch in July, with an artists curator talk and workshops open to the public.

The SPRING Artistic Programme is managed by Co-Creative Director and Programme Manager Raffaella Zammit who is seeing ways instilling values of care, collectivity and collaboration throughout the artistic programming. Co-Creative Director and Curator, Elyse Tonna, works closely with the SPRING Artists to conceptually develop the themes investigated, delving deep and speculating on contemporary questions. Martina Camilleri, Community Engagement Officer, facilitates discussions between artists and the public through imaginative, creative, and sensitive means, thereby opening up the public discourse on contemporary issues.
