Kogo Gallery, in collaboration with Aparaaditehas (Widget Factory), is proud to present the 8th Gallery Night. Taking place on Friday, March 3rd, a number of galleries located in and around Aparaaditehas will be open to the public from 6pm to 11pm. We invite you to join us for an enjoyable evening filled with music, cocktails, and the opportunity to explore a diverse range of exhibitions.
The Gallery Night program is free for visitors.
Gallery Night is supported by the City of Tartu.

> tARTU gallery / Toomas Kuusing's exhibition "Ordinary Worlds" will be opened. The themes depicted in the artist's work stem from both urban and rural life, art, society, music, media, and everything around us. The works inspired by these themes tell stories and form a contemporary folklore where reality is interwoven with collective subconscious delusions and surrealism. Humor spices it all up, ranging from naive jokes to sharp grotesque, irony, and social criticism. The gallery's name will be changed during the gallery night, and the new name will be announced at the opening of Toomas Kuusing's exhibition. Entrance from Kastani street, meeting with the artist, and exhibition opening at 6 pm.
