The exhibition focuses on the legacy of beloved and respected artists: Peeter Mudist, Jüri Arrak, Valdur Ohakas and Endel Kõks. In addition, a short documentary by the directorPiibe Kolka was completed for the exhibition, and it strives to reveal Mart Lepp as a collector and his entire phenomenon in the local cultural scene, through interviews with Lepp himself, as well as the artists Kaido Ole, Peeter Laurits and Ludmilla Siim.
The diversity of the art collection is revealed through thematic groupings: surrounding characters, the charm of abstraction, society, cubism, landscape, Paris, the wisdom of darkness and the enchantment of everyday life. All of this provides an idea of the collector’s choices and focuses. Voluminous collections of works by several artists should be highlighted as valuable features of Lepp’s art collection.
