IAC DAY Lectures

Musée de l'Ariana (Genève, Suisse)

Ariana Museum, Geneva

Since 2009, in order to show the close relationship between the Ariana Museum and the Academy, the IAC DAY, a biennial event, is held at the museum with Council members.

These series of lectures, enhanced by discussions and debates on ceramics, bring together international experts and an audience of enthusiasts.

For this fifth edition, our lecturers will speak in English. An abstract in French will be distributed to French-speaking participants before the conferences begin.
