An exhibition of Estonian contemporary art within the 100th Anniversary of the Baltic Exhibition in Malmö. Galleri 21, Rådmansgatan 5, Malmö, 2014
During the Baltic Exhibition of 1914, Estonia was a province of the Russian Empire. It is different now: after a 20-year long independence between world wars, and 50 years of Soviet occupation, Estonia is again an independent Baltic state with a rich and interesting cultural life.
The exhibition begins with Raul Meel - a conceptualist classic of contemporary Estonia who has had great international success. The second part is divided between two installations by Marje Taska: X Kilo Gold and Aurum et Solium, where people of different nationalities and social groups participate. The third part of the exhibition shows an object by Jaanus Samma and a selection of Estonian video art (works of Dmitri Gerasimov, Kai Kaljo, Flo Kasearu, Eva Labotkin, Silja Saarepuu&Villu Plink, Ene-Liis Semper, Jaan Toomik).
Curators: Marje Taska and Eha Komissarov
Baltic Gold is presented in collaboration with Center for Contemporary Arts Estonia and The Embassy of Estonia in Sweden.
