Diana Tamane presents her solo show ‘Typology of Touch’ at the Museum of Contemporary Art (S.M.A.K.) in Ghent. The exhibition opens at the De Vereniging on the invite of the Friends of S.M.A.K.

Tamane’s family members have been the subject of her work, often taking an active role in her artistic practice. In Ghent, among other pieces, Tamane shows the new work ‘Within Arm’s Reach’ (since 2019), an extensive series of drawings made by her mother as a visual diary while traveling around Europe as a truck driver.

Flo Kasearu is taking part in the international group show ‘Performing the Fringe’, curated by Jussi Koitela and Inga Lāce at Konsthall C in Stockholm.

At the exhibition, Flo Kasearu presents a new video called ‘Open House’ (2019). ‘Performing the Fringe’ is the first chapter of exhibitions series. Subsequent editions will take place in Pori Art Museum and CAC Vilnius.

Marko Mäetamm in Budapest
Marko Mäetamm’s solo exhibition ‘HMM… WHAT SHOULD I WRITE?’ will open at the FUGA Budapest Center of Architecture. The project is about polarization, adulation extremity, about self-centeredness, about rigid and opinionated valuations; about having a monologue where there should be a dialogue instead; about black and white solutions instead of analytical thinking and appreciating differences and diversity. The exhibition is curated by Gabriela Uhl and it features Mäetamm’s new works. ‘HMM… WHAT SHOULD I WRITE?’ is part of the Estonian Week, a cultural festival held in Hungary.
Open: March 19th to April 6th 2020
