Kai Residency Circle takes place on Thursday, August 4th from 5PM to 6PM and hosts two presentations by curator Ceci Moss and artist Fawn Krieger, followed by a Q&A session. Ceci Moss became acquainted with the Estonian contemporary art scene during her month-long residency when she conducted dozens of studio visits. Fawn Krieger is just starting her August residency, during which she’ll be researching Estonian neolithic corded ware culture as well as meeting local art and culture professionals.
The event is free and takes place in the auditorium of Kai Art Center.
