Tallinn Estonia Art
Estonia's capital Tallinn, which tourists may know best as a cobbled old town, is stretched out by tourists far beyond its beloved medieval walls. Street art in Estonia is springing up across the country, illuminating a country more known for its art and architecture than its people.
Estonian - works by artists such as Eero Saaremaa, Joona Kekk and Kalev are exhibited. The theme of the exhibition is the history of street art in Tallinn and its relationship to the history and culture of the city. There is also a large section dedicated to Soviet-era fashion, as well as a collection of artworks by the country's most famous artists.
The Tallinn Biennale, which begins on July 2, should give art lovers plenty of food for thought. The show will take place from July 1 to 8 and will feature a number of exhibitions and events in the city. Four rooms of the Tallin Kunsthalle are used to show works by local and Central European artists. Estonia is open for business and ready to welcome visitors, and the Baltic States (Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia) have a thriving art scene, as countries are now able to spread their wings creatively.
Estonia's other museums and galleries are the Tallin Art Hall, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the National Gallery of Estonia. When exploring the museum, be sure to take with you the book "Ette - Estonia: Art and Culture in the Baltic States" by Eero Saaremaa, a book on Estonian history.
You might also want to consider a tour of Estonia instead of organising everything yourself. This guide to street art in Tallinn and Tartu is full of eyes - candy that makes you want to travel there. For fans of contemporary art, the Museum of Contemporary Art Estonia is an important stop on a visit to Tallinn and will be opened in the coming months along with other museums and galleries in Estonia. For more information about the museum and ekkm, visit its website as well as a full list of its exhibitions and events.
Curated by Katerina Gregos, this travelling exhibition is being held by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tallinn and the Estonian Art Museum (ekkm). More than half of this will take place in three adjacent rooms, each of which will occupy a few pieces. This annual exhibition, which will take place in the ECkm from 1 October to 31 December 2016, will showcase the works of artists from Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia.
The Tallinn Art Hall is also the venue for the Venice Biennale 2022, which will have its second edition in 2016-2017.
ECADC has invited six curators and art critics to Estonia as part of the Visiting Curators Program, which is being run jointly with the Centre for Contemporary Art Estonia. In addition to advising existing galleries and associations of artists, she also organizes a master class for gallery owners to help them enter the world of contemporary art in Tallinn and other cities. The year ends with a trip to New York City to visit the new art city and explore various other art institutions, participate in the annual International Art Festival of New Orleans and the International Film Festival in Los Angeles, and conclude the year with an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris. It was published by Phaidon House and is available in print and digital form on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Amazon Kindle.
Estonian artists have been recognised for some time, and this naturally leads to more attention for artists from the same country. This allows them to participate in international exhibitions and articles about them are published in international art magazines.
For example, when I visited an art gallery in Parnu, I relied on the Museum of Contemporary Art to surprise me with its collection of works by artists from Estonia and other countries. In Estonia, as with art collectors, it is similar in many ways. Warsaw, for example, has a large number of galleries and museums and a great interest in the art of Estonian artists.
Estonian art was introduced in 1991 by Kumu's permanent exhibition at the beginning of the 18th century, but the temporary exhibitions also include international and contemporary art. It also hosts eight to ten major temporary exhibitions annually, both historical and modern, as well as historical or contemporary art from Estonia and abroad.
The Tallinn Biennial has grown so much that Tallinn Art Week will continue to accompany the biennials that will take place in the Estonian capital in the coming years. In addition, Tallinn Tuesday has become an important platform for presenting Estonian and contemporary art to a wider audience. In the tradition of the first permanent exhibition of contemporary and historical art in Estonia in 1991, Modern Love has been produced at Tallina Art Hall since 2004.
