8th NoVA Suggests by Margit Jugar 1 April 2016

1. Tartmus
Tartu Art Museum is my home town museum so for me it is a cherished place. Tartmus has wonderful exhibitions of Estonian, especially local (Tartu) contemporary artists’ works. Right now they are exhibiting Laura Põld’s “Hundreds of Illusions Charted as Land”, she has used many different materials and elements to create a wonderful and multiplex environment.

2. Kumu
Kumu is the art museum in Tallinn, but art exhibitions are not the only thing that happen there. Especially interesting events are films, performances and concerts. The best part about visiting Kumu events is that you can always go and see ongoing art exhibitions too. For example right now Kumu shows “RAM. Early Estonian Computer Art” ,”Saga. Iceland: Art and Narrative” and “Force majeure. The Destroyed and the Disappeared in Estonian Art”.

3. Sport
I recommend doing sport, any kind of sport it is a good way to release endorphins. It will help to loosen up the mind and let in new, brilliant and fresh ideas. Also sport can be tool of self-expression or a way to make art and on top of that, sport keeps you healthy. I myself love to do all kind of sport, but especially volleyball, gym and extreme sport. Now I wish you all motivation to go and do something physical and self-expressive now. 🙂
