A significant part in the activities of the Kumu Art Museum is played by autumn conferences – a tradition that emphasises the organic relationship between organising exhibitions and scientific work, as well as supporting the study of Estonian art as a whole. Exhibitions, which are prepared several years in advance, are based on serious study. Thus, the compiler of the display has, from time to time, to take on the role of philosopher, or dig through the archives. The first of the Kumu summer exhibitions – which give a thorough overview of an important phenomenon or artist in the history of Estonian art – was “From One Century to the Next. Kristjan and Paul Raud,” curated by Mai Levin (22.06.–08.10.2006).
The opening of the exhibition was followed by an international scientific conference of the same title (06.10.2006), the objective of which was the wider study of nationalromanticist awakening in the visual art of the Nordic countries, and the treatment of Kristjan Raud’s and Paul Raud’s oeuvre in this context. This compilation has been composed on the basis of presentations given at the conference.
