OKAPI is a modern art and design gallery in Tallinn Old Town (since 2013). OKAPI is unique in Estonia having its focus on two main fields – glass and photography. The gallery operates both as an exhibition and sales space, introducing local artists and their latest creations to audiences with different interests. Our artists are united by a deepened relationship with their field and material and our visitors and customers feel it.
OKAPI’s (Okapi MTÜ) main activities include representing artists, organizing exhibitions, participating in fairs, initiating public projects, and working with a mission to promote the local and international art culture. This approach has found active participation and feedback from a wide audience. In the course of its activities, OKAPI works with a variety of media – from glass, photography, and graphics to innovative mixed media solutions.
Operating on a representative and easily accessible site in the Old Town, the gallery is attractive to both domestic and foreign visitors, from experts to casual entrants. Participating consistently at both local and distant events and fairs, the gallery acts as an artistic and cultural agent in terms of both importer and exporter, concluding and mediating professional contacts and seeking and creating new opportunities to engage with audiences.
