In October, artists Marko Mäetamm’s and Kaido Ole’s pop-up show “Meaning of Life” was hosted by art collectors Ayşe Umur and Agah Uğur in Istnbul. The installation included Ole’s paintings, Mäetamm’s comic artworks from the series “Painting & Waiting,” and new lithography works that will be presented to a wider audience during NADA Miami Beach art fair this December. The Istanbul event was focused on local art collectors and included an artist talk moderated by the NEV gallery director Ibrahim Cansizoglu. Following the reception and the artist talk, the exhibition was invited to be a part of the Contemporary Istanbul fair VIP program.
This year’s Konrad Mägi Prize was awarded to gallery’s artist Merike Estna. The artist received the prize for her exhibition “Blue Lagoon” and curator exhibition “I’m a Painting” at the KUMU art museum (2014). According to Estonian Artists’ Association’s website, Merike Estna’s solo show and curator exhibition (co-curated with Kati Ilves) defined painting through the dimensions of space, installation and site-specificity, creating a new and eloquent setting. Previously, the prize has been awarded to gallery artists Kaido Ole (2012) and Jaan Toomik (2005).
