The last chance to see the exhibition “The Queue. An Episode in Tartu’s Photo History” in the Tartu Art Museum!
On the penultimate day of the exhibition, February 11 at 3 p.m, the Tartu Art Museum will host an English-language curatorial tour of the exhibition “The Queue. An Episode in Tartu’s Photo History”. The tour is conducted by curator Indrek Grigor. Participation with exhibition ticket.
“The Queue. An Episode in Tartu’s Photo History” is an exhibition about an exhibition. On 3 March 1983, the first exhibition in the series “Woman in Photographic Art” was organised by the Tartu Photo Club and opened in the Tartu Art House, immediately becoming one of the most popular art exhibitions in the history of Tartu.
The stories about the queue at the art house’s doors is the starting impulse for the present exhibition, but another aim for focusing on this curious episode is to bring attention to the international reach of photography in the 1980s and to the peculiar role that photo clubs, which enjoyed somewhat greater freedom than the strictly regimented creative unions, have played in Estonian cultural history.
The exhibition is open until February 12.
