ATM means "Art that Matters", and it matters since it deals with our emerging Artists... The artistic motivation in our youth. It is or rather was, a competition, which led to an exhibition of 25  works by 22 Artists, as it finally transpired. A very young group of bubbling talent took to the challenge, where MCAST was a major contributor.ATM was launched following a lengthy exercise between a team from Mediterranean Bank, Artist Photographer David Pisani, and SO Galerie. 8 Artworks produced by David, were shown periodically in large format on SO Galerie's facade. Following this, they started thinking 'what's next?' and ATM came to be, with a goal to promote emerging artists, and to finally select 25 finalists and 7 winners. ATM Art Competition Winners were as follows:- First Place – Diane Buttigieg Second Place – Jennifer Mallia Runners-up – Charles Balzan, Claudia Chircop, Thea Vella, Antoine Xuereb, Josef Zahra (runners-up are in n…

Daughter of the Nile by Bernice Buhagiar till end of April 2013

Daughter of the Nile is Bernice’s fourth solo art exhibition. She have previosuly exhibited her work namely at Auberge de France and Peace Band Club, as well in several collective exhibitions.

Daughter of the Nile brings alive tales of a land of mystery and magic - Egypt.

Through this colourful, imaginative and vibrant journey, one encounters the enthralling tales of gods, magic and adventure. The ornate Pyramids, the enchanting Nile, and several goddesses who were honored in Ancient Egypt, including Isis- mistress of the gods and Hathor- Lady of Love, are protagonists in this exhibition.

The female nude is used as a metaphor to bring these goddesses and myths to life. My aim for the audience is to relish the oldest stories in the world, which echo tantalizing glimpses from the lost world of Ancient Egypt. Furthermore, getting to know about the past is a way of understanding ourselves now.

The artist’s aim for her audience is to relish the oldest stories in the world, which echo tanta…

Skene presents yet another play for the Easter period tAMA (Hope), is an original one-act play written and directed by Andre Penza.

tAMA is not your typical, traditional Easter play. With their original scripts and creative ways of portraying the values and lessons which Good Friday evokes, Skene have always managed to deliver a fresh experience to its audiences.

Suffice to say that tAMA is set in and around Maltese Parliament, just after the general election that has overwhelmed the country for the past few months. The play revolves around the political class as an extension of Maltese society and culture, overlapped with Jesus message of hope and love. It addresses the difficulties our culture faces to reconcile the two scenarios.

The two parties, the Blacks and the Whites are at a standstill. As they bicker over petty arguments, the Whites come up with an astounding proposal to regain power… bring back Jesus as a means of mending the country’s problems. Will they manage to do it? W…

Passion Play in Ghajnsielem Gozo

In collaboration with the Ghajnsielem Local Council, Ghaqda Drammatika Ghajnsielem will be presenting the passion play The Accusation (L-Akkuza).

Hagar is a typical housewife living a common life with her husband and children. Only her friends and neighbors knew she existed. However when she ended up being accused of adultery everyone pointed their finger at her and she became the subject of judgment and accusations. But Jesus saved her from the harsh penalty of death by stoning. Jesus managed not only to save Hagar from a sure death but also to evade the trap set up by the leaders of the people. But what will happen to Hagar after her narrow escape from death? Will her husband believe her story that she was set up?

Mozart Requiem at the Mdina Cathedral‏

Followed by a Reception at Palazzo de Piro in Honour of This Great Composer.  There is a mystery around the story of Mozart Requiem, which Malta Art Events in collaboration with The Metropolitan Chapter and Infinitely Xara will be organising under the patronage of the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Malta, at the impressive Mdina Cathedral on Wednesday 13th March 2013.

With an endlessly fascinating enigma in the astonishing music that Mozart managed to compose, the Requiem has got everything: a genuinely bizarre commission from a courtly intermediary who asked Mozart to write a piece for Count von Walsegg, so that the pretentious count could pass off the piece as his own composition to commemorate the death of his wife, a young composer of genius writing his first setting of the Mass for the Dead, and finding an absolutely distinctive musical voice to do so, and his tragically early death at the age of 35 after he had written around two-thirds of the work musical material. …
