This summer the UAL Russian Alumni Group co-organised an Art and Design festival with Danish furniture brand BoConcept. Sixteen artists of international background and education, including many UAL alumni, took part in the exhibition and talks programme. The festival lasted for ten days and took place in two BoConcept show rooms in Moscow.

The works exhibited showcased some very different approaches and were came in a variety of scales and media, such as painting, drawing, mixed-media and casting.

This was a great opportunity for artists to network with like-minded creatives and meet potential collaborators and clients. The UAL Russian Alumni group is looking forward to new events!
