Ingrid Allik’s solo exhibition “Sekret”
From 8 July, Ingrid Allik’s solo exhibition “Sekret” will be open in the Tartu Art Museum. Exploring autobiographical topics and those encompassing life’s circles, Ingrid Allik has chosen to pursue free creative work as a ceramicist. Curious for experiments and mindful of the creative process, Allik is constantly changing and evolving as an artist without imposing restrictions on her work in terms of media or dimensions. Her art practice ranges from individual objects to large-scale installations. Original pieces by the artist often occur alongside collected objects, amplifying each other, telling stories of past memories and experiences.
“The joy derived from observing birds (which may be gradually disappearing from the world around us)” by Aksel Haagensen
On Friday, 30 June at 5:00 p.m. Aksel Haagensen will open his solo exhibition “The joy derived from observing birds (which may be gradually disappearing from the world around us)” in the small gallery at the Tartu Art House. The curator of the exhibition is Saskia Lillepuu. Aksel Haagensen was born in Sydney, Australia. His family moved to Estonia when he was eight years old. One of his clearest memories from his early childhood was his obsession with birds: he would draw them, look at them through binoculars, watch them at the zoo, re-enact bird shows he witnessed at the zoo, repeatedly watch documentaries his grandmother recorded for him on VHS cassettes, and for many years a Christmas or birthday would not pass without little Aksel receiving a bird book.
Kursi Koolkonna XXXV sünnipäeva näitus Tartu Kunstimajas
On Friday, 30 June at 5:00 p.m. the Kursi School artists’ group will open its 35th anniversary exhibition in the Tartu Art House. The Kursi School was established in spring 1988. The artists’ group was founded by Albert Gulk, Peeter Allik, Ilmar Kruusamäe and Priit Pangsepp. Over the years, Marko Mäetamm, Reiu Tüür, Imat Suumann, Külli Suitso and Priit Pajos have also joined. With its 35 years of activity, it is one of the oldest active artist groups in Estonia. A common feature of the work of the school's artists is an interest in people and their activity and living areas, and they deal with these in realistic, surreal and often grotesque creative ways.
Group exhibition “Through fog and stones”
On Friday, 30 June at 5:00 p.m. the group exhibition “Through fog and stones”, with works by Katarina Kruus, Liina Leo, Eugenio Marini and Ingrid Helena Pajo, will open in the monumental gallery of the Tartu Art House.

As a follow-up to the exhibition projects “Roaming” (ARS Kunstilinnak, 2022) and “DOKKING Station” (Vent Space, 2021), this joint project is reaching into blurred intervals, into the mist.
