The EKA graduation show TASE ’18 opens today

TASE is the annual spring graduation show of the Estonian Academy of Arts, with this year’s main exhibition taking place at the Faculty of Fine Arts building at Lembitu 10. The exhibition will open on 30 May at 17:00 and the final projects will remain on view daily from 10:00 to 18:00 until 13 June.

The exhibition can be considered a farewell to various temporary spaces EKA has been operating in while waiting for its new building. The Lembitu 10 building has hosted EKA’s academic and creative activities over the past four years and, with the TASE ’18 exhibition, students will have a chance, as a symbolic gesture, to show their final projects in a space that EKA will leave behind when it moves to the new building this summer.

The exhibition will feature the final projects of fine arts, architecture, design and art and culture master’s students with the additional final works of fine arts bachelor’s students.

Young Artist Award and Young Applied Artist Award

The winners of the Young Artist Award are chosen from both the bachelor’s and master’s level students graduating from the Faculty of Fine Arts this year. The jury members are Indrek Köster, Jaanus Samma, Kaarin Kivirähk, Liisi Eelmaa and Ann Pajuväli.

The winners of the Young Applied Artist Award are chosen from both the bachelor’s and master’s level students graduating from the Faculty of Design this year. Jury members: Kristjan Mändmaa, Ketli Tiitsar, Maret Sarapu, Kristel Saan, Raili Keiv and Kadi Pajupuu.

The winners of the Young Artist Award and Young Applied Artist Award at master’s level will be announced at the opening of the TASE main exhibition and the respective awards at bachelor’s level at the EKA graduation ceremony.
