  • Landscape paintings on the windows of Tallinn Bus Station

    Starting July 5, the windows of Tallinn Bus Station will be decorated with landscape paintings from the expositions of the Estonian Art Museum.

    On the viewing windows of the waiting room of Tallinn Bus Station you can see paintings from Estonian landscapes from permanent exhibitions of the Estonian Art Museum, Kadriorg Art Museum, Mikkeli Museum, Niguliste Museum and Adamson-Eric Museum.

    Most of the pieces of art are in their original sizes and placed on the windows as repro stickers. The sun-side windows of the waiting hall open the possibility of seeing the works in a new light.

    “The Estonian Art Museum is organizing its second exhibition at our place, which we are hoping to use to make our waiting hall more cozy for visitors. We hope that the landscapes that will decorate our windows will inspire visitors to such an extent that the art corner set up with the necessary tools will be used frequently” said Tallinn Bus Station marketing and communication specialist Kadriann Raud, adding that the aim is also to use art to create a dialogue with passengers.

    Piret Järvan, marketing specialist of the Estonian Art Museum, describes the collaboration, that will continue after the first exhibition of landscape painting inspired by Christian Ackermann’s work: “At the end of last year, Tallinn Bus Station made an interesting proposal to the Estonian Art Museum for cooperation. At the beginning of the year waiting hall windows of Tallinn Bus Station were decorated with the art of Ackermann. This Summer it is replaced with landscape paintings. On longer and shorter bus rides, passengers can still admire beautiful landscapes, which have inspired many artists. We hope that with the exhibition at the bus station, visitors will be pleasantly surprised, and the original paintings will be viewed at the five branches of the Estonian Art Museum.”

  • Christian Ackermann’s exhibition at Tallinn Bus Station

    From February 2, you can see X-ray photographs of the statues created by Christian Ackermann from the exposition of the Niguliste Museum in the waiting hall of the Tallinn bus station.

    “The format of the pop-up exhibition allows a wider circle of people to get acquainted with Ackermann’s work.” Piret Järvan, the head of the marketing and sales department of the Estonian Art Museum, was pleased with the proposal from the Tallinn bus station. According to Järvan, the statues created by Ackermann from the churches of Northern Estonia also surprise those who are not interested in church art.

    “With a high probability, these statues may no longer be seen together in this century as they migrate back to their home churches. The exhibition at the bus station features X-ray photographs of the statues, which were completed as part of a large-scale research project. I believe that this kind of exhibition at the bus station may arouse interest in visiting the Niguliste Museum.” says Järvan.

    In 2017, the Estonian Art Museum, the Estonian Academy of Arts and the Estonian Evangelical Lutheran Church signed a cooperation agreement aimed at interdisciplinary research of Ackermann’s work and bringing his sculptural art back into the art field. As a result of the cooperation, you can see a close-up of nearly 60 sculptures created for the Estonian church at the Niguliste Museum exhibition.

    The pop-up exhibition at Tallinn Bus Station is open until this May.

  • EKA architecture students’ future visions of Tallinn Bus Station

    Tallinn Bus Station dreams of renewal and in autumn 2019, we asked students of the Estonian Academy of Arts a question – how do they see the bus station of the future?

    As a result of the study assignment, the EKA student exhibition “T4 – Tallinn Timber Tower Terminal” will be available at Tallinn Bus Station this autumn, which will showcase eight designs for the future bus station. Guests at the bus station were able to vote for their favourite. On October 16 the people’s favourite, the GRADIENT project by Mia Martina Peil and Anna Smetanina was announced.

    In the process of creating the designs, students had to rely on environmentally friendly building materials, transport traffic and people’s privacy and comfort in a dense urban space.

    “In today’s light, it is too early to talk about the redevelopment of the bus station, but the projects will certainly become input in the preparation of the initial task of the architectural competition of Tallinn Bus Station. It is great that the public has also been able to express their opinion on the future bus station within three weeks, we are looking forward to seeing which solution of the eight designs will be the favourite,” Airika Aruksaar, CEO of Tallinn Bus Station, comments on the EKA exhibition.
