Kai Art Center

Kai Art Center, a major new cultural hub for Tallinn is located in a renovated industrial heritage site on the shores of Tallinn Bay.

Kai Art Center is a new cultural hub for local and international art, located in the historic and culturally- vibrant Noblessner area on Tallinn’s waterfront. Kai is set to open in September 2019 in a former submarine production plant and will present four main exhibitions each year in collaboration with Estonian and international curators, and its 100-seat auditorium will host a programme of events drawn from all fields of culture. In addition to the residency, the exhibition space and the auditorium, Kai Art Center has a shared office space for up to five Estonian art organisations.

Kai Art Center’s core programme, the Kai Residency is open to international visual artists, curators, writers and other contemporary art professionals. The residency provides the opportunity for selected participants to live and work in Tallinn for between two and four weeks, while being immersed in the city’s dynamic art scene. Launching in October 2019, the Kai Residency will host up to 14 participants in its first year. Five places in the programme will be specifically allocated for residents from the Nordic and Baltic countries.
