Plans for the E! 2014 have gone back to the drawing board as Tallinn Creative Hub has cancelled all productions till end of 2014.

The new triennial venue in the historic heart of Tallinn offers an intriguing contrast between the environment from the 14th century and contemporary youth art. It also requires a partial change of the curatorial concept – the exposition will be one large exhibition where the exhibitions of different countries partially blend and the works of young artists from different countries start a dialogue. The triennial takes place in two medieval buildings: in the former St. Catherine’s church and in the typical medieval merchant house Hopner House (diele, dörnse and yard). Read more

Logan Pasishnik

Canada is excitedly preparing for Eksperimenta! 2014. Having participated in the original Eksperimenta! 2011 the Canadian curators are looking forward to hosting the new Canadian exhibition in Tallinn! Three co-curators, Peter Vietgen, Ann Donald and Joanna Black who are located in the eastern, western and central parts of Canada respectively, are working with teachers from coast to coast. With a population over 35 million and having 3,855,103 square miles this is no small feat. The Canadian exhibition is hosted by our national art education organization, “The Canadian Society for Education through Art” (CSEA) which represents art educators across Canada. Founded in Quebec City in 1955, the CSEA is a non-profit organization that for over half a century has brought together visual art educators, gallery educators, and others with similar interests and concerns.
