Art from the Fondazzjoni Kreattività Collection: Documenting 2007-2012 (exhibition)
An exhibition titled Art from the Fondazzjoni Kreattività Collection: Documenting 2007-2012 was held in Space A of St James Cavalier Centre for Creativity, Valletta, Malta, between the 15th February 2018 and the 18th March 2018.
Following on from the research project which commenced in January 2016, work on compiling a detailed catalogue of the Fondazzjoni Kreattività Art Collection currently stored at St James Cavalier is progressing and will be made available to the public through February and March 2018.
Apart from the actual works of art, which can also be considered as an archived document of the artists’ work, the project will identify the most important basic elements that remain after a creative project has been exhibited to the public. Proposals, press releases, artist profiles, photos, reviews, posters, videos, and other material can provide an indication of the significant context in which the works of art were originally presented. This material can also help researchers better understand the artwork itself, as well as the work of the artist in a broader cultural spectrum.
This ongoing project, which so far has been presented to the public through several workshops and open discussions, will also host documentation of archived pieces from the Fondazzjoni Kreattività Art Collection dating between 2007-2012. These events aim to facilitate an understanding of the methods of collecting contemporary works of art along with points of interest that emerge through the collection as a whole. This project is set to be completed in 2020 as part of the Fondazzjoni Kreattività’s 20th Anniversary celebrations.
