BIO

Roderick Camilleri is a practising artist and a curator. He studied philosophy, Art and Art History at the University of Malta, and holds a B.A. (2010) and an M.A. (2015). He attended various professional development programmes, furthering his studies at international institutions such as the Royal Academy of Arts (London) and Slade University (London), as well as, at professional studios in Edinburgh, Rome, and Marrakesh, amongst others.

 

Camilleri is an active participant in the local art scene. His interdisciplinary visual art practice explores themes related to ontology, metaphysics and materiality. Camilleri works as a full-time art educator, teaching studio-practice and theory at the Malta School of Art in Valletta.

 

He is currently the Vice-President of the Malta Society of Arts. He was also the Artistic Director of AMuSE, an international art project focusing on materiality and multi-sensorial art led by the Malta Society of Arts, selected and co-funded by the European Commission.
