Marika Agu

Marika Agu (b. 1989) works as a Curator and archive project manager at Estonian Centre for Contemporary Art since 2017. She has cultivated projects from a wide range of topics, including archives, material culture, art writing and graffiti. She has curated exhibitions since 2012 in numerous galleries but also at the Tartu Art Museum between 2014-2016 and at Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia in 2018 and 2019. Since 2021 Agu also works as an Associate Lecturer at the Estonian Academy of Arts where she got her Master’s Degree in 2016. One of her recent co-curatorial work was a group exhibition called „A-tishoo, A-tishoo, We All Fall Down” in November 2019 which explored the themes of fear and hopelessness. The exhibition depicted a self-destructive situation in which the man-made world is increasingly turning against us. The artists participating in the exhibition create a journey guided by the uncertainty that lies ahead. She is also in the curatorial team of Sequences which is an artist run biennial in Reykjavík. The aim of the festival is to produce and present progressive visual art.
