The first part of the exhibition will be open to the public from the 21st to 28th June 2021 and the second part will be open from 2nd to 22nd July 2021. The Splendid will be the venue for both exhibitions whilst the Società Dante Alighieri will host the works of the second part as well. ‘Strada Stretta Occupy’ forms part of The Strada Stretta Concept programme under the artistic direction of Giuseppe Schembri Bonaci.
The June exhibition is a collaboration between the second and third-year Fine Arts students from the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Malta. It will consist of works focusing on various methodological approaches of painting that thematically centre around Dante’s Divina Commedia to commemorate the 700th anniversary of Dante’s death.
The July instalment of ‘Strada Stretta Occupy’ by Students will showcase the dissertation projects by final year Fine Arts students from the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Malta. The students have been researching individual themes that engage with topics of contemporary relevance, such as with current environmental issues. Furthermore, the exhibition will be curated by the students themselves, providing them with the opportunity to present their work to the public and engage with the local artistic scene.
Entrance to both exhibitions is free. Please note that due to the current situation, all visitors are to wear a mask and maintain social distancing throughout.
