Exhibition of Recycling

April 15 - May 29, 2018

It is the sixth time already, when the Museum of New Art is organising an exhibition of recycling with participants from Sweden, Finland, Russia, Latvia and Estonia.

A DREAM is dedicated to evaluation of the materials of renewal in our environment. The exhibition is composed of artworks created of renewable material – just old or useless objects or parts of them. There are also new design objects – interior decoration, accessories, clothes, lamps, footwear etc – formed partially or entirely of something old and used. You can also see wall textiles and textile bags made of waste materials of production.

The exhibition is a roundup of artists who are just at the threshold of their artistic path or artists of long experiencebut have found their passion towards the exciting techniques of recycling.

Aet Ollisaar, Annika Kiidron, Belliisi Seenemaa, Diana Tisler, Ene Tapfer, Epp Margna, Ester Must, Evelyn Hints, Gerda Niitvähi, Helen Kangro, Juula Pärdi, Kristiina Pärk, Kalamaja Mosaiigistuudio, Kimmel Disain, HEM / Liina-Mai Püüa & Kärt Hammer, Liina Noorlaid, Maarja Noorväli, Marget Tafel, Marilin Kristjuhan, Margus Rebane, Marta Moorats, Piret Mildeberg, Priit Kangur , Priit Kõiv, Rein Meresaar, Riine Latserus, Siret Ott, Teele Kumm, Terje Krupp, Tiiu Jalakas, Urmo Teekivi ja Janii Malki, Viivi Aavik, pupils of Tallinna Tõnismäe Reaalkool: Evelin Gurei, Veronika Soboleva, Maria Knutova (supervisor Viktoria Eurich).

Workshops within this exhibition give you a chance to make much more environment friendly decisions in your everyday life.
Information of the workshops will be available on our webpage after April, 20.

The process where old will be turned into new and exciting holds the knowledge how to think about everything around us.

The exhibition is supported by Pärnu Town Government, Council of Taxation of Gambling and Estonian Cultural Endowment.


Annual exhibition by
Estonian Painters' Association

April 15 - May 29, 2018

As to common opinion, the art of painting and aesthetic seem to be equalised. Harmony and / or aesthetic are defined even by mathematical formulas. But – to which extent does a form of art contain a hidden and also open resistance against aesthetic canons, even against „corrupt and worn-out“ evaluation system?

In political landscape, new conservatism and traditionalism are on their way up, so the exhibition tries to map the equivalents of various movements in cultural space, as well as to inspect the way ethical and aesthetical values and moral problems have reached the canvas.
The exhibition contains artworks that over-amplify targeted thrills of beauty as well as paintings that overlook aesthetic as such from 2017 and 2018.

The classics of Estonian painting such as Enn Põldroos, Lola Liivat, Tiiu Pallo-Vaik, Jüri Arrak, Uno Roosvalt, Marju Bormeister, Enn Tegova, Mari Roosvalt, etc. each of them perform in their idiosyncratic style. Abstract painting is largely represented, aesthetic brushwork and colorism-based-values are demonstrated by Ivar Kaasik, Andro Kööp, Vano Allsalu, Kristiina Kaasik. Andrus Rõuk and Eva Jänes continue with their sharp-edged, geometrical universes, the transcendental minimalism of Andres Koort adds zen attitudes. Figurative painting is represented beginning with provocative subject matter of mutations of photorealism (Saskia Järve, Nelly Drell, Maigi Magnus, Martin Urb, etc.) and ending with painters remaining true to academic painting, working with very different variations of realism – Aapo Pukk, Stanislav Arhipov, Olesja Katshanovskaja, etc. The hotspots of society are commented on high aesthetical pitch by masters of metaphoric painting – Veiko Klemmer, Maarja Nõmmik and Karl-Kristjan Nagel. From other creative fields attention is drawn by Vilen Künnapu with his psychedelic thrills of color, metal artist Urve Küttner with her picturesque metal painting in etching technique and film maker Manfred Vainokivi with his hard-core statement in graffiti-like large monochrome.
