Event Details

The Strada Stretta Concept, under the auspices of the Valletta 2018 Foundation, presents, Antonio Sciortino u Dun Karm:Bejn Faxxiżmu u l-'British Bulldog', a talk by Giuseppe Schembri Bonaci and Nikki Petroni.

The politics of Malta's first modern sculptor are often disputed. Many debate his seeming affiliations, the intrigues of which emerge from his personality and his art. Dun Karm's reading of Sciortino's work opened up new perspectives of looking at art that were unprecedented in Maltese writings, and which are as relevant to contemporary culture as they were a century ago. Dr. Giuseppe Schembri Bonaci and Nikki Petroni will investigate these topics in a public conversation in order to present the critical approaches currently developing in ongoing scholarly research.

The talk will take place at Strada Stretta, inside Splendid.

Free Entrance.

Special thanks to Jason Masini and Splendid.
