Spring Exhibition 2021

Mon 3. May at 11:00 - Sun 30. May 2021 at 18:00

Tallinn Art Hall · Vabaduse Väljak 8, Estonia

The representative Spring Exhibition of the Estonian Artists’ Association will be unveiled at Tallinn Art Hall, Art Hall Gallery and City Gallery on 3 May and will be open every day this year.

Celebrating Estonia’s thriving artistic community, the 21st Spring Exhibition of the Estonian Artists’ Association will take place at all three exhibition venues of Tallinn Art Hall. This year’s Spring Exhibition will address the salient topics of gender and the body, performativity and provocative live expressions, spirituality, ecological awareness, the integration of political and aesthetic vision, redefining of abstraction, urbanism and gentrification, and, of course, the ongoing pandemic crisis.

In recent years, the design of the main exhibition has aimed to provide equal exhibiting conditions for all artists. This edition of the Spring Exhibition takes a further step in this direction, eliminating the more visually noisy surfaces of the space. The selected works are loosely grouped together along the aforementioned thematic lines, with the curators and exhibition designer collaboratively orchestrating the rhythm, density and placement of the works. This has allowed the artworks to support each other as well as create surprising dialogues between generations and approaches to the artistic practice.

The prize will be awarded at Tallinn Art Hall at the end of the exhibition. At the same event, a catalogue of works exhibited will be presented and a gift voucher of 500 euros for the NOAR platform (noar.eu) will be drawn from among all the voters. The platform also includes works displayed at the Spring Exhibition.
