SPRING is a programme by the Gabriel Caruana Foundation to support early career contemporary artists. Supporting artists and collectives by exhibiting at The Mill has been a core principle of the Foundation and also of Gabriel and Mary Rose Caruana, the founders of The Mill – Art, Culture and Crafts Centre.
Since 2017, the Gabriel Caruana Foundation has supported emerging artists by dedicating its exhibition space for solo exhibitions at The Mill. The process is varied and goes beyond simply supporting the set-up of an artistic showcase. The Foundation strives to support emerging artists/collectives in various ways through curation, ideation of projects, concept and project development, funding and sponsor support, sales of artworks, marketing and internationalisation.
This support has organically grown into SPRING, a programme that conceptually ties in with the notion of creating a platform for the promotion of work by emerging artists/collectives. This enables them to kickstart or further expose their work and artistic career giving them the space to investigate and intervene. The SPRING programme is evolving to support emerging artists/collectives through different modalities.
The SPRING programme is now two-pronged. We offer an annual month-long solo exhibition to an emerging artist/artist collective during the Spring season. We are also offering a dedicated exhibition space for emerging artists/artist collectives throughout the year through a rolling open call. The selected artists are also contributing towards the Foundation by dedicating some of their time to be actively involved in running the Foundation and The Mill.
