CONFUSION at EKKM Nov 12-27, 2016


Umbrella Group will open its first exhibition Confusion in the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia (EKKM) at 6pm on November 11, 2016.

Curatorial exhibition “Confusion” produced by the department of photography of the Estonian Academy of Arts takes places as an off season exposition on the first and second floor of the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia (EKKM) and will be open from November 12 to November 27.

Umbrella Group involves the following artists: Maris Karjatse, Madis Kurss, Kaisa Maasik, Hanna Samoson, Silvia Sosaar, and Ave Vellesalu.

The newly formed artist group captures attention with their spatial and video installations, a VR environment, as well as with the diverse and exhaustive subject treatment.

“Confusion” curated by Marco Laimre studies the concept of confusion in the context of contemporary art. The exhibition is based on Arkady and Boris Strugatsky’s idea that humanness is defined by man’s reaction to the unknown.

Exhibition publication designed by Anna Kaarma includes short descriptions of presented artwork.

Curator Marco Laimre will lead the artist talk with the members of Umbrella Group in EKKM’s cafe at 6pm on November 16.

Guided tour in Estonian will be led by art historian Madli Ehasalu at 1pm on November 20, guided tour in English will be led by art historian Eva-Erle Lilleaed at 1pm on November 27.

EKKM is located on Põhja pst. 35, Tallinn. Open hours Tue – Sun 12.00 – 19.00, closed on Monday.

Free entrance.
