Raul Keller
Saturday 04.07.2020 at the Copper Leg Art Residency 14:30 Opening of Raul Keller's photo exhibition 15:00 Post Horn live   Raul Keller is an Estonian interdisciplinary artist working with site-specific improvisation since 2000 both in performative and installative context. He has focused on radiophonic experiments and text, lo-fi technologies, and DIY cultures with an emphasis on the process. In 2014 Keller filled the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia with a total sound installation with his solo show What You Hear Is What You Get (Mostly) and in 2019, a site-specific installation Girl In The Sewer was arrested and taken custody from the entrance of the same institution.   In recent years he has focused on performing as a solo artist on modular synthesizers and with a free impro noise duo Post Horn (w/ Hello Upan), generating and publishing text and keeping experimenting with analog photography.

Solo exhibition by Jaak Kikas
Solo exhibition by Jaak Kikas
03.07.2020 to 26.07.2020
On Friday, 3 July at 5 p.m. Jaak Kikas will open his personal exhibition of photo(de/re)constructions “Totems” in the small gallery of the Tartu Art House.  The artistic vision of Jaak Kikas is certainly influenced by his educational and occupational background as a physicist. Symmetries, reflections, experiments with the elements of physical reality are important keywords in physics. However, the exhibited photo manipulations give the viewers an opportunity for exercises in pareidolic thought games, enabling them to become co-authors of the works and to see in the images their own hopes, expectation and fears.

Exhibition "Artist Crisis Center"
02.07.2020 to 09.07.2020
Artist Crisis Center is open from 2 until 9 of July in the welcoming premises of ARS Project room to provide support for the creative types cheated by Fortune or beaten by the hooves of Pegasus.   Accompanied by a shelter for unwanted art and a soup kitchen, it is providing refuge and assistance for those in need, all while surrounded by a soothing atmosphere to ease agitated minds and restless souls. Soothing voices might lead visitors through the pleasantly beige interior of Artist Crisis Center and instruct in the use of the healing equipment as well as provide the guidance to artists experiencing troublesome times.   The difficulty of placing your uncomfortable body in the usually pompous setting of an art event has been eliminated by the convenient seating, while soft lighting hides the flaws of disgraced artists and embarrassing artwork as well as those found in the faces of viewers.  
Tallinn Biennial
Tallinn Biennial
02.07.2020 to 30.07.2020
Tallinn Biennial is a chance to witness and experience the freshest works of contemporary art from across the Nordic and Baltic region. The aim is to offer a more underground look into the creative scene, where the need to experiment and express prevails over the need to be right or perfect.   Welcoming all the undercurrents, that get shunned by the prim mainstream, this is where you find the views freed from the constraints of convention, the edgiest and most unpolished raw breath of real air. You get to witness the dialogue between the artist and the art itself, where being certain means failure. Biennial urges you to keep on asking, exploring and feeling by accepting the unpolished, strange and unexpected realities of life.

Rummu, with its clear waters and one of a kind environment, attracts both national and international audiences . One could compare the sunken prison ruins with an underwater museum that is simply asking for a more comprehensive exhibition. The artists believe that water will create a new context for their creation, challenge their installing and visualizing skills as well as expand immensely the whole art experience.       exhibition concept :

Hilja Riet. Sketch for a postcard . 1930s. From the collection of the Museum of Viljandi. Publicity photo
From 12 June the exhibition “Silver Girls. Retouched History of Photography” can be visited in the Tartu Art Museum. The exhibition introduces a selection of works by ten early women photographers from Estonia and Latvia and places them in the company of three contemporary European artists who contemplate the lost and the neglected in our visual history.   Photography is commonly believed to document the world as it is. Similarly, archives and historical collections are believed to represent imagined universal truths. On closer inspection, however, it turns out that archives are collected and later investigated by historians with a particular goal in mind. In a similar manner, photos are always taken from a particular angle and are enhanced to please the author or the viewer.
