The queer body and the Maltese are the main subjects of MILKSHAKE, a four part, multi-media artistic project focusing on the way the body is seen, shown, flaunted, hidden or concealed.

How do we – in this relatively small, traditionally Christian community – relate to same-sex or other unconventional relationships?

MILKSHAKE takes its audience on a tour around the winding backstreets of straight Malta. Local and international artists, photographers, authors and performers will approach issues of masculinity and femininity by working directly with people from the Maltese community.

Artists will collaborate with a number of individuals from the general public and by working collectively, will strive to produce an interactive, multi-disciplinary experience, creatively exploiting the potential within the architectural maze that is St James Cavalier.

MILKSHAKE is a project envisaged by Gilbert Calleja in collaboration with Malta Gay Rights Movement.

The project is supported by The Malta Arts Fund and St James Cavalier Centre for Creativity.
