The works of twelve contemporary Russian artists will be presented to visitors of the largest international exhibition Art Capital, which is held from February 11 to 16 at the Paris Grand Palais on the Champs Elysees. The stand of a group of Russian artists first opened at the Art Capital exhibition, the Russian Eyewitness reports.
The initiative to open a Russian booth belongs to the Russian and French artist Anna Filimonova, who often presents her work at Art Capital. The works of Russian artists are located in the graphics section, one of the most visited at the exhibition.
The Russians will be able to show their creativity in the legendary palace before it closes for major repairs. According to Anna Filimonova, to present one's work in the palace on the Champs Elysees means to become part of the history of fine art.
