Maltabiennale.Art 2024 Has Been Granted UNESCO Patronage
The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation, UNESCO, granted its patronage to maltabiennale.art, which will be held in Malta for the first time in 2024. UNESCO’s patronage is considered as a high form of recognition for this art festival, which has already garnered a strong and encouraging global response from artists, and is clearly set to become Malta’s focal cultural event of 2024.
Through contemporary art, maltabiennale.art will be investigating the Mediterranean, reflected in the theme for the biennale’s first edition: Baħar Abjad Imsaġar taż-Żebbuġ (White Sea Olive Groves). The biennale will unfold across Malta and Gozo, mainly within Heritage Malta’s historic sites, many of which have been declared by UNESCO as being World Heritage Sites, including the capital Valletta and Gozo’s Ġgantija Megalithic Temple Complex
UNESCO Director General Audrey Azoulay expressed how UNESCO’s aims are perfectly reflected in maltabiennale.art’s dialogue between Mediterranean art and cultures, and how this led the organisation to grant its patronage to the maltabiennale.art 2024.
Maltabiennale.art 2024 will be opening its doors on the 11th March 2024, and will welcome visitors until the end of May 2024. The event will be officially inaugurated by the President of Malta, his Excellency Dr. George Vella.
