The Tallinn Art Hall is a art institution that has operated continually since 1934.
It is one of the most important exhibition halls in Estonia, with a distinguished history and versatile spatial programme. The Art Hall also operates the Art Hall Gallery and the Tallinn City Gallery.
Today, the Art Hall as an institution is changing; our goal is to be a contemporary institution for contemporary people without forgetting our history. This is the temporary website of the Art Hall which is changing just like the institution itself.

Principles for compiling the exhibition programme for the Tallinn Art Hall and galleries:



A curator is responsible for the programme of the Art Hall. The programme is the result of the joint work of the Art Hall team. The curator of the Art Hall is obligated to personally curate one exhibition a year at the Art Hall.



The Art Hall does not favour any one type of art or media over any other; the exhibition programme is motivated by the problems that are important in Estonian life today. We see the Art Hall as a place where answers are sought for the social, aesthetic and existentialist questions that are important in Estonia while not ignoring the global context. The Art Hall is an institution for contemporary Estonian people, and it communicates in a contemporary way. The Art Hall is not a museum, it focuses primarily on the art practices taking place today.



The programme connects the work practices of today’s artists from various generations into an integrated whole; it is able to address and initiate dialogues between creators and recipients with different art experiences here and now.



Here Estonian artist meet with foreign curators and colleagues while Estonian art public gets aquainted with multiplicity of art narratives. Different art histories meet here. A constant multi-level exchange of ideas and creation of art history occurs.



The Art Hall team is constantly working on a programme 24 to 36 months in advance. This long-term strategic planning enables significant art events to be designed by synchronizing the events in the exhibition space with other art institutions and public life more generally.


Art collection
The Art Hall Collection includes about 4,000 works of art created primarily between 1970 and 1990, which can be lent out for a fee. Works are lent out for public exhibitions for free.


Public programme
The Tallinn Art Hall offers a variety of public programmes for different target groups in collaboration with Sally Stuudio.

How to organise an exhibition at the Art Hall or galleries


The Tallinn Art Hall does not organise public exhibition competitions with deadlines. Our goal is to achieve close cooperation between the Art Hall team, the artists and curators. Everyone who is interested in organising an exhibition at the Art Hall is welcome to submit their ideas. Please send us a short synopsis (up to ½ A4 page), which can be the starting point for a discussion between the Art Hall team and the artist/curator. We accept exhibition ideas and meet with interested parties on an ongoing basis, all the time. If an exhibition is included in the Art Hall programme or that of one of the galleries that it operates, the minimum preparation period is 6 months and the maximum 24 months. A contract will be signed between the Art Hall and the party organising the exhibition.
