About The Event

The Maltese artists participation in the exhibition is funded and coordinated by ARTS COUNCIL MALTA with the kind support of the Permanent Representation of the Republic of Malta to the UN. On view at

the Austrian Cultural Forum New York and Undercurrent, the exhibition is the culmination of an 18-month-long project

that was launched in 2020 to provide European and NYC-based artists an opportunity for critical exchange and

collaboration during the COVID-19 global pandemic.

What do communication and collaboration mean in a time of uncertainty and isolation? How is the artistic process

impacted by going “fully remote”? In un/mute, artists from 10 countries were paired to explore these questions. We

recognize that effective communication requires active engagement of all the senses and an openness to diversity,

interpretation and digitalization. But what does that look like in practice? The project challenged teams to overcome

the limitations of lockdowns as they connected across artistic mediums, language, culture, generations and time

zones to find new forms of expression and meaning within art. Click here for more info.
