Finissage of the exhibition Unframed: Leis, Tabaka, Rožanskaitė

Join us at Kumu Art Museum for the finissage of the exhibition Unframed: Leis, Tabaka, Rožanskaitė, when the following events will be taking place:

The exhibition “Unframed: Leis, Tabaka, Rožanskaitė“ focuses on the works of three Baltic women artists – Malle Leis (1940–2017), Maija Tabaka (1939) and Marija Teresė Rožanskaitė (1933–2007) – 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.
The exhibition is part of the Kumu Art Museum’s research and exhibition programme on Baltic regional art history, which aims to break out of national frameworks and find interconnections between the art histories of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. It also continues Kumu’s initiative of highlighting women artists from all historical periods.
This event is a part of the exhibition’s public programme.
