 Online

Our meeting is intended to introduce the work of Russian artists and sculptors and to learn more about their interaction with the Belgian art market in the 1920s and 1930s. Talking with the guests of the round table will bring us closer to that already distant era, the specifics of the creative lives of emigrants and their activities.
