Tyler Tekatch
Artist talk with the award-winning Canadian artist Tyler Tekatch will take place October 23rd at 6PM in ARS Art Factory, Pärnu mnt 154, Tallinn. The event is held in room 310.     Tyler Tekatch is hosted in Tallinn by the Estonian Artists’ Association as part of the Hamilton Arts Council European Artist Exchange. Tekatch’s work explores the nature of dreams, perception and the scientific and religious imagination.     Tyler Tekatch began producing and exhibiting 16mm films in the context of Canadian avant-garde cinema. He has extended his practice to include collage, photography, digital cinema and interactive installation. Throughout, his work has been inspired by the desire to explore the mysterious, hidden and uncanny dimensions contained within everyday rituals.    
Jane Remm
Starting from 25 October, the exhibition “Views on a Landscape” by Jane Remm will be open at Tallinn City Gallery. The artist, focusing on the depiction of Estonian forests and, more broadly, landscapes, will present her new works that depict the shadow zones or peripheries of the familiar beautiful landscape. The exhibition is curated by Siim Preiman. The exhibition will open on Thursday, 24 October at 6pm and it will remain open until 15 December.   Jane Remm is interested in the presentation of landscapes in culture and how they have been designed over the years. In the exhibition “Views on a Landscape”, Remm continues contemplating the relations between humankind and the landscape, this time stepping off the roadside and deeper into the woods. The exhibited works could be divided in two – those that depict the meeting points of different artificial and natural landscape components, the tree stumps as legacy trees that had come to their natural end.
Johanna Mudist
"Time Traveller" by Johanna Mudist
23.10.2019 to 09.11.2019
On Wednesday, 23 October at 17:30 a new exhibition of oil paintings and miniature drawings Time Traveller by Johanna Mudist will open in the cellar rooms of Galerii Noorus.   The visitor will be involved in a short time travel and will get an overview of topics that the artist has been working in recent years.   The display includes pieces, which are a part of the master thesis project that the artist defended in 2017, discussing time, place and body. The paintings are characterised by large format and infinite perspective. Colours used by the artist mediate the deformation and blending of perceptions, which she has experienced on a long hike. Time Traveller can also be associated with the main topic of the artist's first personal exhibition Waiters (2018)  - the portrayal of waiting as a temporal experience.

POSTEDEN is a poetic spectacle, an emotional reflection of mundane situations. Clothing is seen as the material embodiment of post-Edenic spirit: illustrating dystopia and abstracting the body. The destiny of clothed bodies is to accept the unnatural situation as the new norm. The order that relieves the fear of the unknown is artificial. Clothing both conceals and uncovers the body and mind. Disdain and love express the longing for unity. The stable state of satisfaction is unachievable, feeding the yearning for change. The cycle of life is repeating, yet on the individual level, every recurrence is a new experience. POSTEDEN is 4th episode in the series of performative fashion installations by Laivi, following “Mystifying Mundane” (27.10.18), “Long Live Trashed Bodies” (16.3.18) and “When I Was a Girl & Life Was Yet Ahead” (20.10.17). The series experiments with presenting materials as body- coverings both on and off the body. The atmosphere is created together with movement, light and sound.

Helle Vahersalu’s anniversary exhibition “Snow, Rust, Colour”
On Thursday, 17 October at 5 p.m. Helle Vahersalu’s anniversary exhibition “Snow, Rust, Colour” will be opened in the large gallery of the Tartu Art House. The exhibition is curated by Tiiu Talvistu and Kadri Asmer.   Colours have dominated the works of Helle Vahersalu for most of her life. Her pictorial world is based on them and this is expressed through her portraits, still lifes and abstract compositions. Although Vahersalu doesn’t paint to convey messages or to make the world a better place, she still manages to transform our surroundings. She paints to bring more colour to the world of viewers, and to thereby offer them aesthetic experiences and soothe their senses. She paints because she cannot live without it.  
Jass Kaselaan’s exhibition “Sheep”
On Thursday, 17 October at 6 p.m. Jass Kaselaan’s personal exhibition “Sheep” will be opened in the small gallery of the Tartu Art House.   The exhibition „Sheep” consists of sculptures resembling human heads on shelves and a photo depicting sheep. Jesus has said: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me and I give unto them eternal life. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.”   The artist thinks that the first sentence of the previous paragraph would have sufficed to describe the exhibition but in that case the press release would have probably been too short.
Vello Vinn
As of 17 October, 5 pm, the Art Hall Gallery opens an overview exhibition of the graphic art of Vello Vinn. Titled "∞ & ○" (read: infinity and circle), the show gives an outline of the artist’s more than a half-century long career.   The thematic core of the exhibition is the developmental trajectory of one of the most innovative post-war Estonian graphic artists, starting from the 1960s up to this day. This also explains the cryptic, symbol-based title of the exhibition which, naturally, hints at the systematic symmetry principle governing much of Vello Vinn’s oeuvre.  
Tõnis Saadoja
Tõnis Saadoja will open his personal exhibition "Paper Town. Enveloped Sky" in Draakon gallery at 6pm on Monday, October 14, 2019. Exhibition will be open until November 2, 2019.   With his present exhibition, Tõnis Saadoja continues studying the space between the painting and the photographic image within a specific pictorial territory. Saadoja has been inspired by hyperrealism in his work while using classical painting techniques; with his recent exhibitions, he has moved towards increasing generalization and abstractness. Saadoja's effortless elegance shows his artistry in the medium of painting.  
Benno & Beardsley
Benno & Beardsley "Once I Had..."
15.10.2019 to 13.11.2019
The exhibition’s title, "Once I Had..." refers to the transience of possession, convenience of over-consumption and other self-destructive implications of human behavior on the future of Earth.   Once I Had.. is a conceptual continuation of Britta Benno recent solo exhibition „Dystopic Tallinn“. In this project the apocalyptic landscape scenery is site-specifically depicted with the Mustamäe district’s panel houses, as they are located in the vicinity of the artist-run space Kraam.
