Tallinn Photomonth '17 01.09–29.10.2017


Tallinn Photomonth is an artist led biennial of contemporary art and visual culture. Although started in 2011 by a group of artists working primarily with photography and video, the biennial has never been a narrowly media-based event, rather it looks more broadly at developments in art and society in a world mediated by cameras, screens and images.


The fourth Tallinn Photomonth will start on 1 September 2017 with the opening of an exhibition curated by Anthea Buys at Tallinn Art Hall. Included in the main programme are exhibitions opening throughout September and October at different art venues and the country’s first and only contemporary art fair The Photographic Art Fair.


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 Artistic Director of Tallinn Photomonth 2017 is Laura Toots and Managing Director is Kadri Laas. Tallinn Photomonth is led by the Estonian Union of Photography Artists (Foku) and supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia and Estonian Contemporary Art Development Center.
