Title: Public Talk: Emvin Cremona and the Modernist Revolution in Malta
Venue: Victor Pasmore Gallery, Valletta
Date: Wednesday 27 November 2019
Time: 6.00pm-7.30pm
Speaker: Prof. Joseph Paul Cassari

EMVIN CREMONA (1919-1987) stands out as a highly gifted creative artist who excelled as a painter, designer, and teacher. His prolific career includes paintings in Maltese churches, philatelic designs, and pioneering abstract experimental works. He demonstrated an innovative spirit in all these areas. His abstract works in ink on paper and the broken glass series remain to date some of the most outstanding abstract achievements. In this anniversary, a hundred years from his birth, Cremona is remembered as an artist who truly assimilated the spirit of the modernist revolution, for introducing a wide public to new forms of expression and helping to reshape the aesthetic sensibility of his nation. Prof Joseph Paul Cassar will also link Cremona with Victor Pasmore’s presence in Malta and will discuss some new findings from his research.

Light refreshments will be served prior to the lecture, kindly organised with the support of the Central Bank of Malta.
