April 16, 2019 in the Central Exhibition Hall "Manege" a press conference and grand opening of the Russian Antique & Art Fair - the leading fair of antiques and modern art in Russia.
The second RA & AF - the first one took place in February 2018 - will once again unite the leading antique galleries, modern art galleries, design and jewelry houses of the premium class in one space. The company "Expo-Park. Exhibition Projects, based on the world practice of such famous fairs as TEFAF and BRAFA, represents the current format of the art fair in Moscow. The idea of synergy finds in itself more and more support in what we call the modern Russian art scene: the introduction of modern art, design and jewelry brands into the conservative world forum of antiques.
Among the jewels of the fair are works worthy of museum collections. For example, “The Mother of God Odigitria”, a unique monument of Russian icon painting from the collection of the “Russian Avant-garde Gallery of the 10–30s”. The image, written by the master of the circle of Dionysius at the end of the 15th century, is not only a museum, but also of spiritual value.
