Heritage Malta is commemorating 100 years since the birth of local artists Antoine Camilleri and Frank Portelli by putting up an exhibition in their honour and organising a talk on each artist.

The local artist, Antoine Camilleri left an enduring impact on the development of Maltese modern and contemporary art.

Most of his unique work draws from his personal experiences and hardships in life and it will surely move anyone who sees it.

An exhibition of several of his artworks and personal items, entitled Commemorating Antoine Camilleri (1922-2005): A Hundred Years from his Birth, will run from Thursday 17th November till Sunday 4th December 2022 in the Camerone at MUŻA, Valletta.

MUŻA will also be the venue of a discussion about the artist being held on 17th November at 6.30pm. His family together with many who knew the artist will be present to share their memories about him. Admission is free of charge and on a first come first served basis.

Frank Portelli (1922-2004), on the other hand, distinguished himself not only as an artist but equally as an interior designer, a designer of murals, postage stamps, posters, floats and masks for Carnival.

The exhibition of his works, entitled 100 years: Commemorating Frank Portelli’s Art and Life will be held from Friday 9th December 2022 till Sunday 8th January 2023, also in the Camerone.

Friends and family will gather at MUŻA on 9th December at 6.30pm for a talk about the artist. There will be no entrance fee, but seats will also only be available on a first come first served basis.

8th November 2022
