Exhibition "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird" by the members of Serbian art association "Palanski Art" & artist-lectors and students of Tartu Art College.
The idea and title of the current exhibition project were proposed by the head of "Palanski Art", Zvonimir Kostić Palanski.
Palanski Art" is an international art association founded in the Serbian city of Niš, whose core membership is comprised of Serbian former and current art lectors, artists and art theorists.
In addition, the association has extended membership to chosen artists from all over the world: Japan, Germany, Brazil, South-Korea, Norway, Australia, the Netherlands and elsewhere, including Estonia.
The theme of the exhibition, "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird", is inspired by a poem from an American modernist writer Wallace Stevens. Wallace Stevens has won the Pulitzer prize with his symbolic-philosophic poetry and "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird" is amongst his best known works.
In some form, this exhibition is an experiment in international relationships and collaboration. Inspiring ideas emerge, evolve and engage artists of varying ages with unique handwritings from different many regions. A multilayered themed exhibition is formed as a result of this mutual creativity, where blackbirds get collectively looked at in many more plentiful ways.
In addition to the Serbian artists, creations of Tartu Art College’s artist-lectors and students are also exhibited. The exhibition was composed and the students of TAC were instructed by Eve Eesmaa and Ave Avalo.
