EAA Publications

The publications of the EAA have an impressively long history, and the information they contain is an irreplaceable tool for historians and anyone professionally involved in art, as well as a comprehensive summary of work done for the members of the EAA.
 
 
Published without interruption since 1998, the Yearbook of the Estonian Artists Association is definitely one of the most regular publication traditions, alongside the catalogue of the annual exhibition, which has been published yearly together with the exhibition since 2006.
 
 
In relation to the EAA’s activities, a set of postcards for the ARS Art Factory was published in 2018, a catalogue of the festival held at the Muhu Art Residency was published in 2015, and a book providing an overview of the first five years of Hobusepea Gallery, Hobusepea Gallery 2003–2007, was published in 2008. In 2012, in collaboration with the Chancellery of the Riigikogu, the EAA published an extensive catalogue of exhibitions held at the Riigikogu Exhibition Hall from 2001–2011.

ARS: SET OF POSTCARDS
Designed by AdAngels
Printed by Print Production OÜ
 
 
This set of postcards provides information about the artists active at ARS. During 2018–2019, with support from Enterprise Estonia, the EAA will be implementing the Open ARS project. One of the objectives of this project is to better introduce the artists, designers and creative businesses active at ARS. Postcards introducing the artists constitute one of the outputs of the project. The colour postcards will be large-format (170×120 mm) business cards, displayed together at ARS to show the profile and variety of the people active in the building. We will also use the postcards to introduce the artists and the ARS Art Factory at various events and venues related to the EAA.
