NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

As one of the major events of the Tallinn Biennial, a new art gallery will open on Thursday, July 2 next to the stairs of the concert hall in the south wing of the Solaris Center. The art gallery can be entered between the pillars of the same doors, where the main entrance to the Sakala Center was originally designed by its architect Raine Karp.

“By creating a new large art gallery at the street level, we want to bring painting back on the pedestal,” comments the gallery’s curator Meelis Tammemägi and adds, “although the main focus of the exhibitions planned in the gallery is on painting, also photography, design, and architecture are honored. Each visit to the gallery is like a small journey through the history of design and architecture. With space-design details, we want to tell the story of Estonian and Scandinavian designers and introduce their creations.”

The mood of the opening night will be created by RAEL KÕIV / JÜRGEN ROOSTE & SIIM AIMLA / ERIK ALALOOGA / ANDRES LÕO / PIA MARTIN. The evening will be taken over by the soul movement MUST MESI, music by HEIDY PURGA and RENNO PAAT.

WHEN: 2 July at 7pm
