Gibraltar - Berlin Artist Exchange Residency Exhibition The Gibraltar-Berlin Artist Exchange Residency Exhibition, organised by Gibraltar Cultural
Services on behalf of the Ministry of Culture, will be held at the John Mackintosh Hall Galleries from Wednesday 4th to Friday 20th October 2017.

This exhibition is the result of the artist in residence exchange programme that was launched by the Ministry last year, as part of its cultural development initiative. As part of this programme, Berlin based artist Birgit Holmer was chosen to come to Gibraltar to carry out an art residency.

Her visit followed local artist Shane Dalmedo’s art residency at Lichtenberg Studios, Berlin, last July. The exhibition will showcase the works of both artists.

Holmer and Dalmedo have created pieces that have been inspired and influenced by their impressions and perceptions of their time spent in Gibraltar and Berlin respectively. The artists’ innovative works are unique multi-media artworks which will hopefully delight visitors of all ages. The Minister for Culture, the Media, Youth and Sport, The Hon Steven Linares MP will officially open the exhibition on Tuesday 3rd October 2017. 

The exhibition will be open to the public as from Wednesday 4th October 2017 from 9am to 9:30pm. Entrance is free.
