Maria Kapajeva’s solo exhibition
Maria Kapajeva’s solo exhibition “When the World Blows Up, I Hope to Go Down Dancing” will be on display at Art Hall Gallery from 17 September. The artist addresses the social pressures that accompany women throughout their lives and looks for ways to confront them. The curator of the exhibition is Siim Preiman.   The exhibition will open on Wednesday, 16 September at 5 pm and will run until 8 November.   Traditional gender roles are often considered as predestined as the laws of nature, rather than the co-creation of society. This is exactly why they are so persistent. According to the most common stereotypes, women are expected to stay young forever on the one hand and to become mothers on the other. Such roles are reiterated in education, media and culture. But what happens if you don’t want to take on either role? And so Maria Kapajeva asks directly: “Isn’t there any other possibility?”

At this year's Design Night, glass artists will discuss design and art in the collective work "Piece of Cake". "Piece of Cake" is made in a unique technique, typical of Estonian glass art "pâte de verre" (or "glass paste" in French). This gentle, ultra-thin, sculptural, or sugar-like smelting technique, is so common among the glass artists that we can safely speak of the emergence of the school in the second half of the 1990s. Mare Saar's first pâte de verre works date back to 1995. The artists participating in the exhibition want to highlight the pâte de Verre technique also because this fragile broken glass has aroused a lot of interest among the audience. People are often puzzled by the story - "how does it all come together" and "is it really glass?". In addition to creating a beautiful artifact, artists hope to create positive emotions in human viewers - to design the viewer's experience on the border of art and real-life and to show more closely the symbiosis of design and art.

The exhibition “Like Stones in Flowing Water” will be opened in Tallinn City Gallery on Thursday, 10 September at 6 pm. It speaks of the consistent yet admirably changeable work of three artists, which is simultaneously both modest and powerfully self-assertive. Curator Tamara Luuk has invited these three particular artists to make a joint exhibition, indicating that poetry, intuition, beauty and harmony also walk their sunny path today, refusing to let it grow wild.   Tiiu Pallo-Vaik, Naima Neidre and Ingrid Allik, the three artists at this exhibition, are like colourful, polished stones that become ever more radiant in the passing of time. Obstructing or redirecting this passage with their physicality is out of the question – they are too fragile. Also unthinkable is being randomly rolled here and there by the flowing water. For this, they hold too much weight.

Ulvi Haagensen’s solo exhibition “Thea Koristaja Museum”
Ulvi Haagensen’s solo exhibition “Thea Koristaja Museum” at Hobusepea Gallery opens on Wednesday, 2 September 2020 at 6pm. The exhibition is open until 21 September, 2020.   “Welcome to our place”, says Thea Koristaja, as she opens the door and indicates for us to enter an exhibition that explores the connections between art and everyday life. Thea Koristaja is an imaginary person, an artist, and a cleaner and this is her museum. Together with two other imaginary artists, known as Olive Puuvill and Loome Uurija, she works with Ulvi Haagensen, who is quite real, to explore how art and life can meet, converge, overlap and sometimes clash.  
Katrin Enni's solo exhibition
Katrin Enni's solo exhibition "Shivers"
02.09.2020 to 19.09.2020
Katrin Enni’s exhibition “Shivers” in Draakon gallery will be opened on Wedenesday, 2nd of September at 18.00. The exhibition remains open until September 19.   Katrin Enni’s solo show “Shivers” is a sound environment made of copper – one of the first metals that humans learned to use. In the gallery, each instrument has a voice of its own, producing different rhythms and frequencies. Together these create a sound environment that can be experienced in a way similar to natural sounds – existing and developing on its own with visitors invited to step in, observe and listen. The structure of the sound piece is not fixed but based on combinations that emerge from endless repetitions. The vibration speakers placed under copper objects add physical dimension to the sound. The speakers act as mechanical filters and while making the objects shiver these produce unexpected echos, reverbs and overtones.
