Tallinn European Capital of Culture 2011

The title of European Capital of Culture 2011 has been awarded to Tallinn, sharing this honor with the neighboring Finnish city of Turku. It is going to be the largest cultural event that has ever taken place in Estonia.
The main theme that Tallinn has selected for its program is the Stories of the Seashore told by actors, artists, writers and musicians. It's intended that these stories help to give an idea about Estonia as a country, offering a glimpse into its history and at the same time revealing its strong connection with Europe and the rest of the modern world. An extensive cultural program will offer numerous events throughout the year.
Already from January 2, an exhibition entitled Mapping, presenting highlights from Ljubljana Biennials of Graphic Arts, is taking place in Kumu Modern Art Museum in Tallinn. The Ljubljana Biennial boasts to be the world's oldest biennial exhibition of contemporary graphic arts. Among the artists whose works are shown at Kumu are Pablo Picasso, Viktor Vasarely, Robert Rauschenberg, Damien Hirst and many more.
In a way, the Mapping also marks the beginning of the prestigious Tallinn International Print Triennial that will open on January 21, entitled For Love Not Money this year.
In May 20, for one night in a year, Kumu is turned into a club, concert hall and cinema, filling the otherwise quiet museum space with sounds of music and noises. The audiences will also have a chance to see and hear popular music bands from Estonia and abroad.
From March to November, the project Roof Top Cinema will offer everyone a unique experience - open-air cinema screenings taking place in various locations of the city. It will be a great chance to enjoy both current and classic films in unusual urban space and outdoor settings.
In October, in its turn, an entire Tallinn's exhibition space will be filled with photographs and nothing else, happening in the framework of Tallinn Month of Photography 2011.
These are just few of the events from the wide-ranging cultural program that Tallinn plans to offer its citizens and guests in 2011.
