PRIVATE VIEWING OF ROYAL FABERGÉ and RADICAL RUSSIA EXHIBITIONS – Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts (18.00 hours) followed by CONFERENCE DINNER

To mark the centenary of the Russian Revolution, two major exhibitions are being hosted in Norwich exploring art, life and culture in Russia before and after the Revolution.  The first, Royal Fabergé, will showcase the work of Fabergé, the leading artist-jewellers in the decades preceding the First World War, whilst the second exhibition, ‘Radical Russia’ will show how in a few short years a completely new approach to art emerged in Russia.

We are delighted to have secured a private viewing of both exhibitions prior to the Conference Dinner.
