About R Gallery

R Gallery is a  contemporary art space located in the heart of a bustling seaside town called Sliema in the Mediterranean island of Malta. Built as a British military hostel at the turn of the 20th century, the art nouveau edifice has been transformed from a place of sanctuary for soldiers into a spacious host for bold contemporary art.

R Gallery is 


A cultural connector between practitioners working in contemporary art in all its manifestations, including but not limited to visual, performance, literary, and sonic art.  


A physical and immaterial bridge between artists working in the local and international context and the public by means of production and propagation of work. 


A space to consider, dissect and disseminate pressing questions of contemporary times through art. 


A catalyst for conversation and engagement with the rich cultural scene of Malta and its community. 


A chance to champion, invest and support local and international contemporary artists, emerging and established, through mentorship, conceptual and logistical assistance, connections to the international art world  and a dynamic yearly programme with adjacent events. 


An educational impetus bringing contemporary art to the people through strategized action including exhibitions, events, talks and workshops.
