Curatorial Exhibition

Beauty Matters, The Resurgence of Beauty

11.09–17.11.2019

The Museum of Estonian Architecture

The exhibition elevates the status of beauty and its role in exploring new architectural beauties, through the lens of new habitats. 

It celebrates the resurgence of beauty after some eight decades and crystalises a moment of cultural change: newly designed habitation projects that focus on Tallinn but have global implications, creating a conduit for the experience of beauty. 

Great architecture emanates from the creative tension between the variables an architect opts to engage with, striving to reflect on the role of human judgment by sifting through ideas, to achieve a result that is original, profound, economical, clear, surprising, sometimes ambiguous. The characteristics of beauty.

Nine exhibitors, three Estonian and six from around the world, have been chosen for their diverse palette of agendas and aesthetics; together they exhibit a collective pluralism and demonstrate that beauty matters. 


PARTICIPATORS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON.
