Vanity, Profanity & Worship: Jewellery from the Maltese Islands – An Exhibition by FPM
Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti’s exhibition Vanity, Profanity & Worship: Jewellery from the Maltese Islands opens in the splendid historic building of the Casino Maltese, Valletta, Malta in March 2013.
For the first time in Malta, this exhibition will bring together spectacular pieces of jewellery loaned from Maltese private and church collections which rarely, if ever, are seen in public. It will be a unique opportunity to view such a collection of artistic and historic jewellery under one roof.
Over five hundred jewellery items are being exhibited, and this will provide a thorough survey of what jewellery in Malta looked like from ancient times to the present. Jewellery sheds light on the beliefs, customs and fashions of a people and this exhibition will highlight all these aspects.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, which contains essays by scholars and specialists on subjects relating to jewellery in Malta. A full programme of activities, including lectures and workshops will run throughout the exhibition.Casino Maltese, Valletta, Malta, 31 March 2013 – 26 May 2013
