Billy Apple and Jim Speers are represented in the 15th Tallinn Print Triennial, FOR LOVE NOT MONEY which runs at the Kumu Art Museum in the city of Tallinna, Estonia to 8 May 2011.
In his introduction to the exhibition, co-curator Simon Rees says: “While 'love' and 'money' are universal concepts their meanings are contextual and relative to the time in which they are encountered. History – to be understood in its individual versus collective, private versus public, and personal versus national manifestations – is a major determinant of perceptions of love and money (and their relationship). The location of the exhibition in Tallinn, a former communist territory and recently returned to capitalism and representative democracy, offers a special historical perspective.”
