NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

Tallinn Art Hall launches a unique and innovative virtual platform, bringing its current and previous exhibition programme online for audiences worldwide.

The technological complexity for the virtual exhibitions is much lower than that of the specialized VR tools used by some institutions, yet it creates a distinctly spatial and ambient experience of the multidisciplinary work featured. The requirements for viewers are simply a moderately sized screen and a reasonably fast internet connection. Potential uses for the technology, however, are not limited to exhibitions and can be used for digitizing various spatial experiences: a platform that is easily accessible and achievable for most institutions interested in bringing their exhibitions online. 

At the moment there are two exhibitions available, additional exhibitions will be added soon.

However, their work is united by a dedication and creative intensity that is most clearly expressed in a shared fanaticism for their chosen media and techniques.

Disarming Language, in bringing together artists, graphic designers, writers, and activists, establishes a number of critical vantage points that imagine disability beyond a stigmatised “condition”. Its purpose lies in imagining new conceptual and experiential frameworks that use language and communication in innovative ways—through, with, and beyond disability—advancing a radically more expansive point of view past limiting ableist perspectives and possibilities
