NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

The exhibition tries to compensate for the modest part of drawing in today's art life by placing works inspired by nature from a dozen artists in the museum's summer exposition next to E. Okas' action drawings. The larger contemporary part of the exhibition is curated by Inga Heamägi, the legacy part of the exhibition is Mai Levin. The latter includes the works of Günther Reindorff, a top master of landscape painting, from the 1930s to the 1970s from the collections of the Estonian Art Museum and the Tartu Art Museum. Peeter Ulas's colour drawings from the 1960s and large charcoal drawings from pines in the 1980s are also on display. (Mai Levin)

Like Günther Reindorff in his modern space in the 1920s and 1930s, contemporary artists work in advertising and design offices, design stamps and other valuables, are teachers, participate in art competitions and juries, and so on. Are the 1930s still so cosmic away from “our time”? Nature is and will remain a great source of inspiration for all artists. We are the children of our land and time. My idea is to show nature-inspired drawings by our contemporary artists. Our contemporary artists take part in this exhibition with their drawings, many of whom have graduated in graphics and for whom drawing is a natural part of their lives. (Inga Heamägi)
