Exhibition “The Vernacular”
Exhibition “The Vernacular”
19.01.2022 to 01.09.2022
On 19 January, at 17:00, “The Vernacular” art exhibition will open at the Tallinn Russian Museum (Pikk Street 29a).   “THE VERNACULAR”, Muravskaja's personal exhibition, is an atlas of Russian words of the Russian-speaking people of Estonia, and it reflects many processes that have taken place in the past and are ongoing in Estonian society. It is a unique imprint of time and culture that is inscribed in the native language of the ethnic Russian community in Estonia. The exhibition shows language and vocabulary as the most iconic expression of the identity of Estonia’s ethnic Russians. The collection of words has been assembled in close collaboration with the local community and the Tallinn Russian Museum.  
Britta Benno’s solo exhibition “Of Becoming a Land(Scape)”
On Saturday, 22 January Britta Benno’s solo exhibition “Of Becoming a Land(Scape)” will open in the large gallery of the Tartu Art House.   This exhibition marks the third and last project in Benno’s artistic research in the doctoral school of the Estonian Academy of Arts. This time the focus is on landscapes that previously appeared in the background of her artworks. Image is becoming abstract and architecture is backing away from the stage. A layered landscape comes forth, the rocks in Earth’s crust reveal themselves underneath the soil. At the same time, the crystallization of posthumanist philosophy in Britta Benno’s artistic (self-)definition reveals itself through the agency of minerals.  
 “The A. B. C. D. E. F. G of Love”
The co-exhibition “The A. B. C. D. E. F. G of Love” by Marge Moko and Maruša Sagadin will be open in Hobusepea gallery from Thursday, January 13th. The exhibition will remain open until February 7 th. An exhibition is a point on a continuum.   The lives of objects—and artists—precede and follow individual events. That solid-state matter continuously self-chronicles with chemical technology preceding any digital blockchain. Their confluence and your coexistence distinguish this moment. We stand where a collective flow of mortal forms beget flickers of mechanical joys.   The personal and professional dialogue of Marge and Maruša before this moment may be invisible to you. But it’s tangible. What you see, comes from months. What you don’t, comes from years.  
Laura Cemin “a slash is a dash is a splash”
Laura Cemin's personal exhibition “a slash is a dash is a splash” will be open in Draakon gallery from Wednesday, January 12, 2021. Exhibition will be open until February 5, 2022.  “a slash is a dash is a splash” is a scenography for a play, a training room, or perhaps a leaky text that escaped the 2 dimensions of the page. Playing with different degrees of abstraction, Laura Cemin literally translates puns and idiomatic expressions into material objects, while simultaneously creating a new abstract language. A sequence of bodily traces, exhaled sounds and physical impressions to allow slippages away from the straight, the vertical, the controlled.
Ulvi Haagensen “Home Exhibition”
Ulvi Haagensen “Home Exhibition”
08.01.2022 to 10.01.2022
Ulvi Haagensen Kodunäitus / Home Exhibition Lembitu 6-6, Tallinn 8.–10.01.2022 Please register HERE There are many ways to make an exhibition at home. You could paint the walls white, clear away all traces of everyday life and set up the artwork as you might in a white cube gallery. Or you could set up your work in and around existing everyday objects. Or you could not really do anything and simply invite people to your place and call it an exhibition. Art can after all, be whatever we decide it will be.
Raoul Kurvitz
On December 28, Tuesday at 6PM is the opening of Raoul Kurvitz’s personal exhibition based on his latest creations “The Garden of Beauty without Edge and End”.   Beauty as a concept has been over- and underestimated throughout history, just as beauty standards have fluctuated from wall to wall. In the end, beauty is always a subjective rating: there is no universal nor godlike beauty. Ultimately, beauty is what we attribute to being universal or godlike in our current time and cultural space, or on the other hand, not at all.   However, beauty is a feeling to a certain extent. Often it’s connected to sublimity, sometimes to unavailability or negligence, but on rare times it’s even terrifying. Ultimate beauty connects it all - ultimate beauty is at the same time sublime, unavailable and terrifying, sometimes even horrifying or just scary.  
Exhibition “Present yet-to-be” by Lisann Lillevere, Johanna Ruukholm and Denisa Štefanigová
The co-exhibition “Present yet-to-be” by Lisann Lillevere, Johanna Ruukholm and Denisa Štefanigová will be open in Hobusepea gallery from Friday, December 17th. Curator of the exhibition is Lilian Hiob. When I was a young person I went to the university and I learned a rational language, to think with the left side of the brain. But in the right side of the brain you have intuition and imagination. Words are not the truth; they indicate the way to go, but you need to go alone, in silence. Symbols have a language that kills the words. - Alejandro Jodorowsky

Martin Buschmann “Doc. Photo 2020”
Martin Buschmann “Doc. Photo 2020”
14.12.2021 to 08.01.2022
Martin Buschmann's personal exhibition Doc. Photo 2020 will be open in Draakon gallery from Tuesday, December 14, 2021. Exhibition will be open until January 8, 2022.   Since the objective of documentary photography is to record events on the spot then in case of virtual events and environments we are bound to think about how to be present and how to reflect the events of virtual environment through photography? What are the common characteristics of the real and the virtual world? What are the possibilities and restrictions; how does contemporary photography theory function and survive in virtual environment?   The artist presents photographs of concerts that have taken place in various virtual (game) environments. Buschmann manipulates with contemporary concert photography in virtual environments while observing the ways of forwarding the dynamics of the visual (including mood, flow of events, characteristics).
