1 October 2015 – 31 October | Printing Museum (Kastani 42, Tartu)
Have you ever wanted to see the city of Tartu from a different perspective? The exhibition “Impressions of a City” by young talented Russian artist Olga Danilova presents Tartu from fresh perspectives in masterful linocut and woodcut prints. The exhibition will be displayed in the Estonian Printing Museum where Olga spent one month as an artist in residence in spring 2015. The artist will be present to open the exhibition and answer your questions about her work.
Olga Danilova was born in 1990 in St. Petersburg, Russia and graduated from the prestigious Ilya Repin Institute of Arts where she mastered classical painting and printmaking techniques. Olga’s main focus is on large format multi-color linocuts that are technically challenging and stand visually apart from contemporary digital media, yet remaining vivid and full of details. The anachronistic gallery space in the Printing Museum with presses from the beginning of last century is in many ways a perfect backdrop for Olga’ works and marks the beginning of a curated gallery program in the museum.
The exhibition opens on the 1st of October at 18.00 at the Printing Museum (Kastani 42, Tartu). Admission is free.
