The Malta Pavilion at the 58th Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia has ranked among the top 16 pavilions singled out by the prestigious Christie’s international art magazine for its Pick of the Pavilions at the 2019 edition of the Biennale.

Titled Maleth / Haven /Port — Heterotopias of Evocation, the Malta Pavilion is also among the 25 national exhibits named by leading arts magazine Frieze as ‘the best on view in Venice’ this year - out of more than 95 pavilions present at the event.

The acclaim for the Malta Pavilion came ahead of the public opening on May 11 of the Venice Biennale, the oldest, largest and possibly the most competitive gig in the arts world.

The exhibiting artists were Vince Briffa, Trevor Borg and Klitsa Antoniou.

More than 80,000 visitors are expected to visit the Malta Pavilion, set up in Venice’s Arsenale.

The Arts Council Malta team was tasked with co-ordinating Malta’s participation at the Biennale.

The 58th Venice Biennale Art Exhibition runs until November 24, 2019. More information can be found at
