G PLAN: MADE IN MALTA

Co-curated by Alexandra Pace + Violet Kulewska

30 September – 11 November 2016
Blitz, Valletta

This landmark exhibition presents the untold story of a collaboration between two pioneering design companies – Gomme Industries, producer of G Plan in the UK, and Joinwell in Malta, the only other company licensed to manufacture G Plan products. Presented in the context of a contemporary art organisation, the exhibition shines a bright light on our industrial history and the development of post-war furniture industry in Malta. It is an exhibition that bridges contemporary art with contemporary living. Today G Plan furniture is both highly collectible and still found in many homes in Malta.
