Xewka F’Qalbi Xewka F’Sormi – XQXS – A collective art exhibition
November 11 @ 7:00 pm - November 28 @ 10:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:00 pm, repeating until November 28, 2023
Xewka F’Qalbi Xewka F’Sormi is a collective exhibition celebrating 10 years of the Women’s Rights Foundation. Curated by Rachelle Deguara and developed conceptually with Emma Agius, the exhibition features eleven different artists exploring the subject of rape culture, a culture which normalises or trivialises sexual assault or/and abuse.
Xewka F’Qalbi Xewka F’Sormi is a collective exhibition by Emma Agius, Isaac Bezzina, Silke Debanant, Nicole Sciberras Debono, Nick Ebejer, Saaqia, Claire Farrugia, Shanice Farrugia, Robin Cassar Fiott, Sam Vassallo and Francesca Zammit.
Opening on the 11th of November at Rosa Queer, the exhibition will be accompanied by panel discussion, artist talks and performative events with performance art acts and music.
When approached by artist/curator Rachelle Deguara, the artist had several discussions on Rape Culture in Malta and through various artistic mediums, conceptually the artists created and/or adapted work incited from the conversations. The exhibition aims to challenge societal attitudes and encourages conversation about rape culture locally, in the light of the work done by the Women’s Rights Foundation for the cause, while encouraging discussions about consent and the need for education and prevention.
Xewka F’Qalbi Xewka F’Sormi is a space where diversity of experience gets explored with compassion.
