The APS Mdina Cathedral Contemporary Art Biennale - The Mediterranean: A Sea of Conflicting Spiritualities

The Mediterranean region encompasses various cultures and religions. From the interaction between East and West has emerged a history of conflicts and struggles that are represented by the powerful visual cultures of each diverse community. The contemporary political scenario emphasises the need for the arts to respond to an era of crisis and destruction. Being at the centre of the Mediterranean, Malta is a significant place for such an artistic dialogue to be exposed and challenged. Furthermore, the city of Mdina was home to multiple faiths and artistic cultures. The APS Mdina Cathedral Contemporary Art Biennale tasks to give life to the contemporary within a space that retains a strong and vivid past.

Dr. Giuseppe Schembri Bonaci is the artistic director of the 2017-18 APS Mdina Biennale. The event will take place at the Mdina Cathedral Museum. It will exhibit the work of Maltese and international artists who will each develop new work based on the theme. APS Bank is the the main sponsor in collaboration with the Mdina Metropolitan Chapter and the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Malta.

The exhibition is being held at the Metropolitan Cathedral Museum Triq San Pawl, Mdina, Malta
