Over the weekend, maltabiennale.art introduced a special offer, granting visitors a 50% discount on entrance fees to Heritage Malta sites featuring biennale works. The response was overwhelming, drawing crowds eager to explore iconic locations like The Grand Master’s Palace, National Museum of Archaeology, MUZA, Fort St Angelo, and the Ggantija Temples, among many others to experience a diversity of artworks, with each site weaving contemporary narratives within historical settings through the theme of “white sea olive groves”.

“We’re delighted by the response from the public to last weekend’s incentive, which was a great success. Our goal is to make maltabiennale.art inclusive and appealing to everyone and we’re dedicated to finding innovative ways to engage both seasoned art enthusiasts and newcomers alike. Initiatives like these not only enhance our cultural scene but also strengthen the bond between audiences and our art and heritage. We invite everyone to join us on this exciting journey of exploration as the inaugural maltabiennale.art continues to unfold over the coming months,” shares Mario Cutajar, Founder and President of maltabiennale.art and Chairman of Heritage Malta.

The management team, along with its partners, has exciting plans to introduce more special offers and incentives for events hosted during maltabiennale.art. Alongside the fascinating contemporary artworks featured in the Main Pavilion and thematic pavilions, the biennale has expanded its event roster to include a wide array of experiences. From theatrical performances and enlightening art films to engaging lectures, interactive workshops, and family-friendly activities for children, there’s something for everyone to enjoy and explore throughout the duration of the biennale.

In the next few weeks, Malta’s bustling cultural calendar features upcoming events organised by cultural entities on the occasion of maltabiennale.art such as TOI TOI’s annual Easter concert, A Dream is A Wish, at Teatru Manoel on March 30 and 31, and ZfinMalta’s Dances for Gozo at Teatru Aurora in Gozo on April 6.

On April 12, within Gozo’s Citadella, Head Curator of the Maritime Museum, Liam Gauci, will delve into the intriguing tales of corsairs and privateers in 18th century Malta in a lecture titled Morte o Fortuna. Meanwhile, on April 28, Italian collective La Rivoluzione delle Seppie will lead Professions of the Giants a public procession from St. Elmo Fort to Grand Master’s Palace in Valletta, promising another layer of cultural richness to the biennale experience. All part of the maltabiennale.art outreach programme.
