Para refrendar los lazos culturales y artísticos, la Dra. Lucina Jiménez, directora general del Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes y Literatura (INBAL), sostuvo una reunión con representantes del Ministerio de Cultura y de la Embajada de la República Popular China.
Prior to 2018, the government increased the support for image and form art by 40 percent. The increases have meant that the Arts Council has been able to invest in artistic development and accessibility in the visual arts even next year.
The Arts Council is today (10 December) publishing its 2017/18 Cultural Gifts Scheme and Acceptance in Lieu Annual Report. It shows that in the last year, 42 cases worth £27 million were accepted for the nation under the government’s Cultural Gifts and Acceptance in Lieu schemes. Paintings, sculptures, ceramics, prints, drawings, papers and manuscripts have been accepted and allocated to public collections throughout the UK, including Tate, the British Museum, Pallant House, Ulster Museum, the Whitworth, Scottish National Galleries and many more, where they are available for everyone to engage with and enjoy.
Artificial intelligence (AI) may not drastically change the artistic landscape anytime soon, but I believe it will stir up interesting conversations over the next few years.
The visual arts sector in our country is versatile, flexible and dynamic, but small scale and fragmentation also make it vulnerable. For example, fewer presentation spaces, insufficient space for experiment or talent development and low fees for artists have affected the potential of the sector in recent years. This is the opinion of the Council for Culture in the 'Visible of Value' advisory report.
The opening of Muza is another milestone for Maltese history and culture, Minister Owen Bonnici said at the opening of what will be a museum dedicated to all forms of art in Valletta.
