The Museum of Contemporary Art of Estonia (EKKM) starts its official exhibition season on 28th of April with the exhibition of Köler Prize 2012 nominees. We have nominated for the Prize five most interesting Estonian artists at the moment: Johnson ja Johnson, Flo Kasearu, Marge Monko, Marko Mäetamm and Margus TammLike last year Grand Prix is sponsored by the Smarten Logistics and the laureate chosen by the international jury. Peoples choice award, voted by the visitors, is  sponsored by the Gallery Temnikova & Kasela together with LAWIN

Within the frames of the exhibition season lasting from the end of April until mid-October we manage to do 5 bigger projects: Köler Prize is followed by the solo show of  the legendary Canadian neoist Istvan Kantor Monty Cantsin? Amen! curated by Kiwa and titled “The Insurgent Neoist”. The show opens on June 16 and is accompanied by the substantial side program. Thereafter Marco Laimre curates an exhibition titled ”Grrrls Powers”, which opens on June 22 and, as described by the curator, is a postfeminist project dealing with critical self-analysis of women and girlsOn September 2nd EKKM launches a new curatoril format that we call “Surprise Curator Exhibition”.  It’s a format, where the exhibition is curated by a person who is otherwise not directly engaged with art. EKKM proposes him or her to imagine an exhibition, to present his or her version of contemporary art in general in the form of a group show. We will announce the name of the first surprise curator later this season. The exhibition season ends with the 3rd Artishok Biennial that takes place at EKKM from 10th – 20th October and is curated by Liisa Kaljula

NB! EKKM is glad to announce that starting today we have also launched a new home page wwww.ekkm.ee
