Estonian Design Exhibition “Loov Kultuur” in Paris

Estonian Design Exhibition “Loov Kultuur” in Paris

Design, fashion, art, photography, street art:
The Estonian New Wave at the Cité de la Mode et du Design
Location: 34 Quai d’Austerlitz, 75013 Paris, France

From December 8, 2017 through January 21, 2018, the Cité de la Mode et du Design presents Loov Kultuur*, an immersive voyage into the heart of Estonian culture and lifestyle.

Design, art, fashion, street art, photography, animated film… An indoor and outdoor circuit, with art as your only baggage, that takes you through a country celebrating a century of independence in 2018. This will also provide a chance to display the work of French artists inspired by Estonia: a perspective, cross-cultural view.

Designed with the support of the Estonian Ministry of Culture, Loov Kultuur is part of Estonia 100, a cycle of events coordinated by the Estonian government as part of their centenary celebration.

The program includes various events, such as Estonian design pop-up store and exhibition Size Doesn’t Matter, architectural installation by Salto architects; Estonian-themed photo exhibition by French photographer Raphael Gianelli-Merian, presentation by environment concerned designer Reet Aus, as well as Estonian animations and a felt toy-making workshop for the little ones, etc.

The core of the event is the design exhibition Size Doesn’t Matter, which contrasts the small size of the country, the high number of designers, and the abundance of achievements. The concept of the exhibition has been developed by The Estonian Association of Designers (EDL).

At the same time and as part of Estonia 100 celebrations, the street art project Restart Reality: Digital Street Art will take place in Paris. We are connecting these two projects, and as a result, Estonian stencil artist Edward von Lõngus will create his work on the wall of Cite de la mode et du Design.

In 2018, Estonia celebrates its 100th birthday

Estonia wishes to share its birthday with you in Estonia and abroad. The programme includes best parts of Estonian culture, IT, science and enterprises.

Celebrations will kick off in April 2017 to mark a century since Estonia’s administrative borders took their current form, will continue throughout 2018 and 2019, and come to a grand close on the 2nd February 2020 when the 100th anniversary of the Tartu Peace Treaty will be honoured.

This is a celebration we can all take part in and it is up to us to make it memorable.

Estonia will be also holding the presidency of the EU Council in the second half of 2017. Approximately 20 high-level meetings, visits, conferences and 200+ other presidency-related events will take place in Estonia during this period.
