Conferences and Seminars of the AME
Conferences and seminars form a part of the ongoing research work at the Art Museum of Estonia, and bring together experts from Estonia and abroad. On the one hand, conferences and seminars provide motivation to improve the current state of the topics related to the art museum and, on the other hand, to establish new goals. The Art Museum of Estonia has a set rhythm for its international conferences. In the first half of the year, the Kadriorg Art Museum’s spring conference takes place, and in the second half of the year, the Kumu Art Museum organises its autumn conference. In the interim, conferences are organised at the Niguliste Museum and the Adamson-Eric Museum, and seminars are conducted at the museum branches. The most important conference presentations related to research on the museum’s collections are published in the Proceedings of the Art Museum of Estonia.
