"Second Encounter" Estonia - Sweden, Edward Wilde Museum, Kastellaanimaja Gallery, Tallinn, Estonia

04 Jun 2014 - 29 Jun 2014

Festive opening Wednesday 04 June 2014 17:00

The writers Oscar Wilde and Edward Wilde never met, even though they are sitting together on the same bench in Tartu, Estonia. But we can meet! Join us for this second encounter between Estonian and Swedish artists in the gallery of Edward Wilde's Museum.

You find Kastellaanimaja Gallery in the park of Kadriorg, a favourite spot for the inhabitants of Tallinn for taking their weekend stroll and popping in to the museums like the ultra modern KUMU the Art Museum of Estonia and the baroque Palace of Kadriorg, to name a few. The palace was built as a summer residence for Catharine I (Kadri in Estonian) who was the wife of Peter the Great. Even the Office of the President of Estonia is to be found in the park.

Our gallery is housed in a building from mid 19th century which was built for the castellan (caretaker) of Kadriorg Palace. On the ground floor there is a museum of the famous Estonian writer Edward Wilde with the display of his life and work and his apartment as it was in the late 1920s. Upstairs there are spacious rooms for art exhibitions.
