Art Walk. Unframed: Leis, Tabaka and Rožanskaitė

Drop-in guided tour in English

The Kumu Art Museum offers you a great opportunity to spend your leisure time in a vibrant artistic space. On the last Sunday of every month, we offer a special drop-in guided tour that will introduce one of our exhibitions. Through our museum mediators, you can gain deeper insight into art and history.

The exhibition focuses on the works of three Baltic women artists – Malle Leis, Maija Tabaka and Marija Teresė Rožanskaitė – in the late Soviet era of the 1970s and 1980s. All three of the artists challenged contemporary art discourses through non-conventional approaches to self-representation, ways of creating space and reflections on being artists. They produced a significant number of images in which the (female) protagonist steps out of the picture or turns her back on the viewer, creating visual metaphors of leaving or moving on to a new territory. In other works, the artists played with multiple frames that shift the perception of a stable and uniform reality.

Art Walk at Kumu takes place on the last Sunday of every month at 3 pm.
NB! Check the exact schedule because national holidays might affect this!

The meeting point is at the museum ticket office.
