Art Museum of Estonia 100. Open Collections: The Artist Takes the Floor

Art Museum of Estonia 100. Open Collections: The Artist Takes the Floor

Time: 05.07.19–10.11.19  00:00–00:00
Location: Kumu exhibition spaces

On the occasion of the centenary of the Art Museum of Estonia, an examination of the museum’s collection will be organised in the Kumu’s Great Hall, the geographic and temporal dimensions of which extend from the international to the local, from the Middle Ages to the present day. All of the popular approaches to art history owe their emergence to the museum. But what happens when artists intervene and provide their own versions of an era, a work or a movement, when an artist functions as a curator?
Curator: Eha Komissarov.
