Ruth Bianco sees her interest in space as central to her art practice and her role as an educator. MICAS, incubated in a historical site with resilient and formidable military architecture, seeks through this reinterpretation to create a cultural space for the arts to seed and disseminate creativity across neighbourhoods, communities and borders. Biancos own work, with her installations and video and sound pieces, is preoccupied with concepts of spatial choreography’, ‘collage, and connecting geographies. Her interests as ideas take on the same generosity of the social exchange she envisages for MICAS. 

Led by art critic and curator Rajesh Punj, the MICAS in Conversation series forms part of MICASs programming vision towards fostering new ideas and experiences promoting contemporary art. 

MICAS is a Government of Malta infrastructural legacy project for the Culture and the Arts sector. MICAS will be realised through state funded restoration of historical fortifications and its galleries will be delivered in 2022. This project is part-financed by the European Union under the European Regional Development Fund – European Structural and Investment Funds 2014-2020.
