MUŻA is the chosen name for Malta’s new museum of art and is a flagship project for the Valletta European Capital of Culture in 2018.
The community-oriented project is a national museum, the first of its kind, which shares a common vision with the Foundation’s objectives in promoting art and museums as a tool for social transformation.
MUŻA shall be housed at the Auberge d’Italie, a historic building originally dating to the late sixteenth century and used as the seat and residence of the Italian knights of the Order of St John. This is where the original nucleus of what was later to become the National Museum of Fine Arts was first exhibited. The Fine Arts museum collection includes artefacts and works of art prized by international museums but which are less known by the local community.

Studio 87 is a collective art space. It is a space that is open to the community and not intimidating, which the art world can sometimes be. It moves, inspires and also educates – as well as catering for activities such as pop-up events and workshops.
