What’s on this weekend in Tallinn

The forecast for this weekend is warm (10C) but a little drizzly. With that in mind, why not check out some art exhibits or catch the last couple nights of Tallinn Fashion, which wraps up Saturday night.

Tallinn Fashion Week

For the seventh year in a row, fashion returns to Tallinn. Last year the fashion event gathered over 4000 visitors and received great media attention. For this weekend’s schedule of events visit: www.estonianfashion.eu

Salme Cultural Centre (Kultuurikeskus), Salme 12, Tallinn

The Denizens of the Estonia Theatre in Fine Arts on display until 24 November 2013 at the Adamson-Eric Museum.

In conjunction with the 100-year anniversary of the Estonia Theatre, the Adamson-Eric Museum is housing an exhibit called “The Denizens of the Estonia Theatre in Fine Arts.” The artworks on view are mainly portraits of various cultural figures associated with the Estonia Theatre from its beginning in 1906 throughout the twentieth century. Portraits by top Estonian artists such as Ants Laikmaa, Nikolai Triik, Felix Randel, and Johannes Greenberg are some of the exhibition’s highlights. Along with each work is a description not only of the person in the photo, but their most well known performances at the Estonia. The second floor also has an array of books documenting the history of the Estonia Theatre as well as the opportunity to listen to opera performances of its most well known singers, including excerpts by beloved opera singer Georg Ots. “The Denizens of the Estonia Theatre in Fine Arts” proves the strength of Adamson-Eric Museum, as a continued site for some of the most innovative art exhibitions in Tallinn.

When the Artist Met Clio: Historical Scenes from the Nineteenth Century on display until 9 March 2014 at the Kadriorg Art Museum.

A turn towards an older era of art has also taken place across Tallinn in Kadriorg, where the Kadriorg Art Museum is currently featuring the exhibit “When the Artist Met Clio: Historical Scenes from the Nineteenth Century”. The exhibit focuses on history paintings by mainly Baltic German, Estonian, Latvian, and Russian artists, but also artists from elsewhere. The focus on the nineteenth century is a welcome change both for the Kadriorg Art Museum, which typically focuses on the early modern era, as well as within the KUMU system as well, which has a tendency to focus primarily on the twentieth century.
