The society’s annual prize was awarded to Mari Laanemets, who curated in 2018 at Tallinn Art Hall exhibition „Abstraction as an Open Experiment“. The exhibition focused on the implementation and interpretation of abstractionism and abstract systems in contemporary art and art of the recent past. The exhibition explored the artistic practise which focuses on formal experiments and is based on radically simplified forms and a systematic approach.
