Join Lana Sloutsky, our new Curator of Exhibitions and Collections, for a presentation on the historical relationship between the visual languages of Byzantium and Russia. The talk will be structured around formative artistic and architectural examples to highlight both the multifaceted interconnections and independence of the two traditions. The presentation will be followed by a live Q+A.

She received her Ph.D. from the Department of Art and Architecture History at Boston University, where she focused on the ways in which aristocratic women perpetuated Byzantine culture after the Fall of Constantinople in 1453. Lana has over a decade of teaching experience at various Boston area colleges and worked for many years as a lecturer and researcher at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
