Tallinn Photomonth is an artist led biennial of contemporary art and visual culture.
Initially started in 2011 by a group of artists working mainly with photography and video, the biennial has surpassed medium specificity and looks at developments in art and society in a world mediated by cameras, screens and images.
The third Tallinn Photomonth will start on 17 September with the opening of Prosu(u)mer, an exhibition curated by David Raymond Conroy at The Museum of Contemporary Art Estonia.
Also included in the main programme are exhibitions opening throughout the autumn at Tallinn Art Hall and The Art Hall Gallery, Tartu Art House and Tartmus. A satellite programme will run in Tallinn’s public and commercial galleries. The exhibitions are contextualised through a programme of public events and an education programme for schools.
The Photographic Art Fair Estonia, the country’s first and only contemporary art fair will take place from 2 to 4 October at Telliskivi Loomelinnak, with a professional preview evening on 1 October.
The Artistic Director of Tallinn Photomonth 2015 is Kristel Raesaar. Tallinn Photomonth is led by Foku and supported by Cultural Endowment Estonia, The Ministry of Culture, The Estonian Contemporary Art Development Center, The Nordic Council of Ministers, Frame Visual Art Finland and The Finnish Institute.
