Spring Exhibition 2020 at Tallinn Art Hall to open in two parts

18.05.2020

Featuring a large number of participants, the 20th Spring Exhibition of the Estonian Artists Association will be opened in two parts.
 
In 2020, the Spring Exhibition of the Estonian Artists Association will celebrate its 20th anniversary. The display will be opened in two parts: the exhibition Artists Painting Artists, curated by Kai Kaljo, will be opened at the Art Hall Gallery on 21 May, while the opening of the general exhibition at the Art Hall and City Gallery will take place on 11 June.
 
The anniversary exhibition of the Estonian Artists Association received the largest number of participation requests to date: of the 313 applications, the jury and the curator selected works by 142 artists. For the past number of years, the Spring Exhibition has been designed to form a single whole by Kaarel Eelma. Works displayed at the exhibition will be compiled into a catalogue, and the Audience Prize will also be awarded.
 
“The genre of psychological portrait is very honest in many respects; it does not allow the artist or model to hide anything or go down an easier path,” said Kai Kaljo, the curator of the exhibition to be opened on 21 May. Portrait as a genre can hopefully provide support in the post-truth era. 74 portraits by 66 artists will be displayed at the Art Hall Gallery.
