MALTA STOCK EXCHANGE – ART EXHIBITION 2017
10/Jan/2017

CALL TO VISUAL ARTISTS

As part of the activities to mark the 2017 Maltese Presidency of the Council of the EU, the Malta Stock Exchange will be organizing a collective art exhibition starting in early March. The exhibition will be held at the Exchange premises in the Garrison Chapel, Castille Square, Valletta.

This year’s thematic art exhibition investigates notions of connectivity. We are connected as workers, citizens and consumers and during leisure. From participating in the Maltese squares’ way of life to the notion of the networked-self, everyone and everything relates to everything else, as everything is connected in one way or the other. Connectivity could be obvious and bold but could also be defiantly subtle. The concerns in this theme are not instruments and infrastructures but acknowledging the phenomena of what networks say about us and about how connectivity has captured our life and imagination.

Visual artists based in Malta wishing to participate in this unique event are invited to submit work related to the theme of ‘connectivity’. For further details on applications and terms and conditions see below.

For any updates please refer to the Malta Stock Exchange website:

Securities admitted to the Prospects MTF are issued by small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Investment in smaller companies can involve greater risk than is generally associated with investment in larger more established companies and can result in significant capital losses. Securities issued by SMEs tend to be illiquid and investors should therefore seek appropriate advice before making any investment.

Titoli ammessi fuq Prospects MTF jinħarġu minn intrapriżi żgħar u ta’ daqs medju (SMEs). L-investiment f'kumpaniji żgħar jista’ jinvolvi riskju akbar milli huwa ġeneralment assoċjat ma' investiment f'kumpaniji akbar u aktar stabbiliti u jista’ jirriżulta f'telf sinifikanti ta' kapital. It-titoli maħruġa mill-SMEs għandhom it-tendenza li mhumiex likwidi u l-investituri għandhom għalhekk ifittxu parir xieraq qabel ma jagħmlu xi investiment.
