THE Little Constellation project, specialising in promoting and developing art in Europe’s smallest states, opens the doors on its ‘The Voices of the Sirens’ exhibition this week (Tuesday June 23). The show is the concluding part of a two-year venture, the launch to be hosted in the Gustavo Bacarisas Gallery.
Exhibiting in this gallery are artists from Gibraltar, Iceland, Cyprus, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Montenegro, and the state that founded the Little Constellation project, San Marino.
On Wednesday (June 24) further exhibits open at Listen to the Sirens – Space for Contemporary Art in the ramparts of the old city walls, the first dedicated contemporary art centre on The Rock, set up as part of the project.
Work shown at the Montagu Bastion space includes a deeply moving sound installation by Gibraltar-born director and filmmaker Nina Danino, based on interviews with the 12 cloistered nuns of the 17th century monastery of Santa Chiara de Valdragone in San Marino.
The exhibitions run throughout the summer until August 30.
