Exhibition “Man and Nature: The Art of Adaptation”
With the help of contemporary artists and a selection of artworks from the museum’s collection of old masters, the exhibition seeks to rethink the boundaries between culture and nature, addressing the themes of biodiversity, ecosystem interdependence, eco-anxiety and sustainability. The dialogues between the artworks make us think about how the natural environment surrounding humans has changed over centuries, and the changing relationship between artists and the environment.
Kumu is the main building of the Art Museum of Estonia and the largest and most representative exhibition place in Estonia. Kumu sees its role as a initiator of social and cultural debate, both in the exhibitions of art history and in the gallery of contemporary art.
