'Inspired in China' Art Exhibition


Since its establishment 15 years ago, China Cultural Centre in Malta (CCC) has been consistent in its aim to promote mutual friendship and appreciation between

the peoples of China and Malta. The annual China Creative Art Project Trip and subsequent participation in Inspired in China –Fine Art Exhibition by Maltese

Artists, is one of the measures which CCC implements to honour and realize objectives upheld by the Governments of both countries to support exchange

initiatives appertaining to culture, tourism, art and education, amidst other sectors. Inspired in China pursues CCC’s aspirations to develop mutually beneficial

cooperation between Chinese and Maltese artists and art experts. Moreover, it seeks to portray the real face of China through the eyes of Maltese artists,

transforming their trip into a journey of discovery and creative impetus, which captures impressions and perceptions of China’s national, ethnic, regional and

ecological specialties, from timeless traditions to priceless intangible and natural heritage; spellbinding landscapes and seamless co-existence of antiquity and

modernity. Over the past six years, several representatives of Malta’s flourishing art world have participated in this annual project, including the exhibition’s

long-standing curator, Mr E.V. Borg. Under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of China, and recommendation of local partnering arts

organizations, in 2018 CCC selected four accomplished artists: Debbie Bonello, Andrew Borg, Damian Ebejer and Lucienne Spiteri, inviting them to visit China’s

coastal province of Fujian - the time-honoured birthplace of the ancient Maritime Silk Road, world-renowned for the far-reaching influence of seafaring trade, verdant

scenery, sophisticated tea culture and cultivation. This dedicated collection of Maltese artworks nurtures dialogue,

understanding and enduring friendship between the people of China and Malta, and the wider world.
