Exhibition Views 2012

April 14 - August 5, 2012, Adamson-Eric Museum
Dora Gordine’s (1895–1991) notable career as a sculptor started in Tallinn. Her family was of Jewish origin, and probably relocated to Estonia from Liepāja in 1911. . As early as February 1917, Dora Gordine made her debut appearance in Tallinn at the Third Exhibition of the Estonian Art Society, held in the rooms of the Cinema Passage in Viru Street. Dora Gordine has remained in the shadows of Estonian cultural history for decades.
In 1928, Dora Gordine permanently left Tallinn as a citizen of the Republic of Estonia. She went to Paris, where she had been intermittently working since 1924. With the bronze Head of a Chinese Philosopher Gordine made a big impression on the European art scene, which back then still tended to be rather male-centred.

Exhibition was compiled by Fran Lloyd, Dr. Jonathan Black (both from Kingston University), and Brenda Martin (curator of the Dorich House Museum)
