Estonian Contemporary Art Development Center (ECADC)

The Estonian Contemporary Art Development Center (ECADC) is a nonprofit foundation focused both on fostering international exposure for artists from Estonia and on developing the contemporary art scene in Estonia. Functioning as an umbrella organization for Estonian partner institutions, the center is creating strategic international partnerships in the field of contemporary art. Founded in 2012, ECADC receives ongoing financial support through Enterprise Estonia (EAS) from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Our team members are based in New York and Tallinn, Estonia. ECADC is the founding member of philanthropic organization Outset Estonia and the main organizer of contemporary art biennial Tallinn Photomonth.

In the fall of 2019, ECADC’s new headquarters will open on Tallinn Bay in a renovated submarine factory with 900 square meters of space for exhibition programming, residency, auditorium and shared offices for key contemporary art organizations, festivals and biennials in Estonia.
