Tallinn Biennial 2 - 30 July 2020
Tallinn Biennial is a chance to witness and experience the freshest works of contemporary art from across the Nordic and Baltic region. The aim is to offer a more underground look into the creative scene, where the need to experiment and express prevails over the need to be right or perfect. Welcoming all the undercurrents, that get shunned by the prim mainstream, this is where you find the views freed from the constraints of convention, the edgiest and most unpolished raw breath of real air. You get to witness the dialogue between the artist and the art itself, where being certain means failure. Biennial urges you to keep on asking, exploring and feeling by accepting the unpolished, strange and unexpected realities of life. Tallinn Biennial has grown out organically from Tallinn Art Week and is taking place for the first time in 2020 as a pilot. Staying small, curious and experimental, it is covering topics and themes that resonate across borders to offer a truly authentic view to the international art audience about the realities of current times from a number of Baltic and Nordic artists. Tallinn Biennial is co-financed by European Regional Development Fund via Enterprise Estonia
Is there a universal language, a system of communication, through which humankind could rise to a new level of understanding and cooperation for addressing our global challenges? Could art and culture be the global language? Will a global language save us?
