‘What do you think the artist is? An imbecile who only has eyes if he’s a painter, or ears if he’s a musician….On the contrary, he’s at the same time a political being, constantly alive to heartrending, fiery, or happy events, to which he responds in every way….No, painting is not made to decorate apartments. It is an instrument of war for attack and defense against the enemy’. Picasso Interview with Simone Tery, 1945 ‘The Goldfinch’: An exhibition of drawings by Joseph Farrugia, is a collection of works executed over the past three years. Angered by the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia, and Malta’s corrupt political climate; ‘The Goldfinch’ is a call to arms against the indifference, institutional collapse, and moral corrosion that plagues Malta. The exhibition is organized in support of the Daphne Caruana Galizia Foundation.
