The Victor Pasmore Gallery
In 2014, the Central Bank of Malta and the Victor Pasmore Foundation embarked on setting up the Victor Pasmore Gallery, a permanent exhibition of the works of Victor Pasmore as a collaborative project housed within the historic walls of Valletta, which was officially opened to the public on 3 November 2014. In September 2015, the gallery passed under the management of Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti with the intention of bringing further to light the importance of Pasmore and the Maltese modern art movement.
The Victor Pasmore Gallery displays paintings and constructions which Victor Pasmore (1908-1998) created during his time in Malta, in conjunction with a small number of works created a few years earlier. The works of art on display, which the artist had kept, were found in his country house in Gudja (Malta) as well as in his home in Blackheath, London. Occasionally some would surface in exhibitions, yet this is the first gallery dedicated to presenting a wide selection of the artist's personal collection. The exhibition permits a better understanding of Victor Pasmore through a selection of paintings and constructions that reflect the artist's dedication to abstract art over the years.
The Victor Pasmore Foundation was set up in 2012 to conserve and promote the art of Victor Pasmore as a significant testimony to twentieth-century art and as an important element in Malta's artistic patrimony. The Foundation also works to further study and research the artist, his life and his work.
The Central Bank of Malta holds four works by Victor Pasmore in its collection. As the principal corporate patron of Victor Pasmore's works in Malta, the Central Bank of Malta is proud to host The Gallery within its historic premises at the Polverista Gallery and to present the life and works of Pasmore to the public.
Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti, set up in January 1992, is a non-profit organization with the aim of spreading awareness of the island's extensive heritage locally and internationally, through museums, exhibitions and publications.
Opening Hours: Monday to Friday between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
