Digitale Medienkunst aus Malta
March 25 – April 16 2017
Joseph Calleja & Jon Galea

New media have not just produced new art forms that have been influenced by the new media technologies but also new art forms that exist solely because of such technologies. In the Maltese arts scene, there are a number of young artists working in the fields of video art, photography, sound installations and Net art.
The In Transit exhibition will showcase 19 of these Maltese artists, for whom the digital is understood to be not just a medium for but also the content of art, and will present them to an international audience. The exhibition will be shown in various European cities, in the first half of 2017, on the occasion of Malta assuming the presidency of the Council of the EU. The touring exhibition will be curated by the artist, curator and researcher Dr Vince Briffa.
