Under the Patronage of
His Excellency the President of Malta



A first-time biennial has no tradition to bow to, no historic exhibition pavilions to populate. It is faced with a blank canvas – an ideal space for shaping the imagination. To understand how best to do this, it is essential to know that Malta is the smallest state in Europe (a full eight times smaller than Luxembourg);
cartographically it is located south of Tunis, and its language is a hybrid of Romance and Semitic languages written in the Latin alphabet.
