Open Collections. The Artist Takes the Floor is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Art Museum of Estonia. The curator sent invitations to participate to Estonian and international artists, who have helped celebrate the centennial of the Art Museum of Estonia by creating added value and a more diverse cultural context for the museum’s collection with their own works. The exhibition is meant to inspire a dialogue between contemporary artists and artistic heritage and to highlight the increasing role of contemporary art in the formation of new art historical concepts.
