A major new art center launches at a renovated industrial heritage site on the shores of Tallinn Bay
Kai Art Center, a new cultural hub for local and international art, that will present four main exhibitions a year, boast a 100-seat theater, and serve as an education center, opens next month September 2019 in the historic and culturally-vibrant area on Tallinn’s waterfront. Spearheaded by the Estonian Contemporary Art Development Center, the more than 100-year-old heritage-protected building—a former submarine plant—will provide 450 m2 of top-floor exhibition space, presenting four main exhibitions each year.
Several Estonian art organizations have offices in the former submarine factory complex, which is under heritage protection and over 100 years old. There are top-of-the-art exhibition rooms and a 100-seat auditorium, as well as an international residency programme. In addition, there are various food studios and a restaurant on the ground floor of the building.
