Diana Tamane “Half-Love”
18.06.2022 to 16.10.2022
18.06.–16.10.2022 From 18 June the exhibition “Half-Love” can be visited in the Tartu Art Museum. Half-Love explores the relationship between the artist Diana Tamane and her younger half-sister Elina. Exhibited here for the first time, this new body of work continues a long line of projects focused on her family, in which since 2010 Tamane has collaborated with members of her extended family, with photography at the heart of the conversation. Beginning in 2008, the year of her sister’s birth, Tamane began taking photos of their shared time together. This ongoing project, when viewed in retrospect, traces the life of Elina from birth to the spring of 2022.
Brit Pavelsoni ja Cloe Jancise näitus „Autoportree revolutsionääri ja tantsijana“
Opening of the exhibition Self-Portrait as a Dancer and a Revolutionary by Brit Pavelson and Cloe Jancis at Võru Showcase The opening of the duo show entitled Self-Portrait as a Dancer and a Revolutionary by Brit Pavelson and Cloe Jancis will take place on 11 June at 5 pm at Võru Showcase. The exhibition playfully addresses topics such as women’s everyday roles and the spaces in which these roles are expressed. What are the roles that permeate through the definition of a parent, a partner and an artist? How can we best cope with the emotional states that different roles make us feel? Which domestic practices are considered “feminine” and what is their social or artistic value?
Peeter Allik. Our Conception is Future. Linocut, 2000
On Friday, 10 June at 6 p.m. Tartu Printmaking Festival “Shadows” named after Peeter Allik will open in the large gallery of Tartu Art House. For the first time, the Tartu Printmaking Festival bears the name of Peeter Allik in honour of Allik as the founder of the festival. The artist has written about the idea of the festival: “Good old printmaking is an opportunity even when everything else disappears, completely free self-expression, everyone’s own printed press, in the conditions of any democratic or totalitarian organization.” The festival has been held regularly since 2012 and is scheduled to take place this year in its interdisciplinary spirit throughout the summer. Various exhibitions, international performance actions, a chess tournament named after Peeter Allik and workshops will take place all over the town.
“Transitory” by Veiko Klemmer
“Transitory” by Veiko Klemmer
10.06.2022 to 10.07.2022
On Friday, 10 June at 6 p.m. Veiko Klemmer will open his solo exhibition “Transitory” in the small gallery of Tartu Art House. A common topic for the exhibition seems to be grotesque, irony and a sentiment somewhere between being and non-being. In some sense it’s an observation of what will happen if we continue the current trends to their logical end. According to the artist, the idea for the exhibition began some years ago when he wanted to explore and understand human archetypes better. He was trying to find some new depictions of stereotypes and embodiments of different moods, which can be throughout history. In particular, the relationships of those who exist between the shadows of greed, pride, power and other similar totems. 
Eero Ijavoinen's solo exhibition “Silent hour”
On Friday, 10 June at 6 p.m. Eero Ijavoinen will open his solo exhibition “Silent hour” in the monumental gallery of Tartu Art House. Ijavoinen has worked as a teacher for many years, which is why the idea of the exposition derives from school, primarily from its material aspects or, in other words, the educational tools. The paintings and drawings are made of old teaching tools and packaging. Expired educational tools exude a vibe that is no longer needed in this form. The artist has changed their original meaning and has given them a new potential and life. The sculptures focus on the classroom, furniture and the occupants of the space: the students. The main figure is the Teacher, that old stump, who shines and gives out wisdom and knowledge. The exhibition “Silent Hour” is an hour which lacks any pressure.
