A New Gothic

14 April 2023 - 21 May 2023

A New Gothic presents the fourth and most ambitious exhibition to date by the emerging contemporary figurative painter Ġulja Holland.

It brings together Holland’s ongoing series of paintings which were completed in the UK, Portugal, and Malta.

The broad and universal themes of gender identity, social well-being, and climate crises have been instrumental in creating this series.

The itinerary of events included in this five-week project will include collaborations with several local and international artists, academics, and practitioners from across disciplines.

The exhibition is being curated by Andrew Borg Wirth, the awardee of the ARTZ ID Best Curatorial Practice Award 2022, and shall be inaugurated by the highly esteemed curator, PAOTY judge, art historian, and Chairperson of the Liverpool Biennial, Kathleen Soriano.
