The Victor Pasmore Gallery is FPM's unique gallery dedicated to one of Britain's foremost abstract art pioneers - Victor Pasmore (1908-1998). The collection covers a wide a range of Pasmore's creations and preferred media, including drawings, reliefs, spray paintings, constructions, prints and composite works. Though not all produced in Malta, the works on display are largely representative of Pasmore's artistic practice following his move to the island in 1966, and also exhibit a greater sensitivity and interest in light, colour and myth. The gallery also stages temporary exhibitions related in some way or another with Victor Pasmore and his work.
Further to an agreement with the VP Foundation, on the 18 December 2020, the Victor Pasmore Collection, previously held at the historic Polverista premises at the Central Bank of Malta in Valletta, was handed over to Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti. FPM opened the new Gallery in September of 2023 continuing the research and promotion of Pasmore's important cultural legacy which impacted Malta and his Maltese contemporaries.
