A panel discussion on the subject “Locked Down – how did the pandemic affect the work and lives of artists?” will take place in Kai Art Center’s auditorium on Saturday, 4th September at 5pm as a part of Art Fair Foto Tallinn programme. The discussion is held in English. Participation with the fair ticket.



Participants are artists Cloe Jancis and Jenni Toivonen and curator Isabella van Marle. The discussion is led by artist and curator Johanna Rannula.


By now we all know what living in isolation means. But how can artists work and create when everything is in lockdown and you can’t meet other people? Some artists searched and found new creative challenges in isolation, and reflected upon the experience in their art. With this discussion, we’ll look into the strategies for adaption and the possible lessons learned from the pandemic.



Art Fair Foto Tallinn takes place at Kai Art Center between September 2nd and September 5th, 2021, presenting the latest works by 37 Estonian and international artists. The fair is part of the main program of the 6th Tallinn Photomonth contemporary art biennial.


Tickets to the fair are available on-site or can be bought in advance here.
