TAB Satellite Programme

TAB 2019 Sattellite programme “Beauty Matters” Open Call is closed.

Tallinn Architecture Biennale TAB 2019 is looking for architects, artists, urban designers and curious professionals from other fields to take part in the international TAB Satellite Programme.

TAB 2019 Satellite Programme offers an opportunity to showcase accompanying exhibitions and creative ideas in various locations in the heart of Tallinn during Tallinn Architecture Biennale TAB 2019. We are looking for exhibitions, installations, happenings. Including spacial designers and thinkers, the invitation is also directed to a diverse selection of professionals from other fields. The idea can be presented as an exhibition or a 10 minute performance, as a music or dance piece or a scientific experiment, a workshop or an excursion connected to this year’s Biennale’s winner proposal “Beauty Matters: The Resurgence of Beauty‘‘ curated by an architect Dr Yael Reisner.


Different locations offered vary from public pedestrian tunnels, popular shopping centres and cafes to galleries and public area locations in the Tallinn City Centre. We invite architects, designers, artists, curators and anyone who would like to showcase their work to the international audience of TAB and reach a wider public in Tallinn’s local scene. Depending on the design and layout of the exhibitions the TAB production team will help in finding the best place from possible spaces.

TAB 2019 provides

— a free of charge exhibition space up to one month, depending on the location
— exhibition opening during TAB Opening Week 11.09–15.09
— promotion and international communication as part of TAB Satellite Programme through TAB official and additional marketing channels

NB! The authors of the works are responsible for setting up and deconstructing the exhibition. TAB can find volunteers to support the setting up with clear instructions. All this must be planned beforehand and presented with the concept.
