Scandal in Hrodna: exhibition of Napoleon –Horde banned 13:06, 11/07/2007
The plain- air “Following the Napoleon-Horde’s route” which was held at the Hrodna exhibition hall was supposed to be concluded by the today’s exhibition. But it so happened that the organizers were obliged to look for another place. It was a planned event approved by the Hrodna city executive council half a year ago. But ideological problems have obviously sprung up.
The plain- air “Following the Napoleon-Horde’s route” was dedicated to the 15th anniversary of the Society of Polish Artists which now functions under the auspices of the unacknowledged by the Belarusian authorities Union of the Poles of Belarus headed by Anzhelika Boris, the Radio Ratsia reports.
The could-be speech of Anzhelika Boris at the city exhibition hall could have been finished with a scandal. At least, as director of the hall Irina Sylvanovich informed, she had been warned at the city executive council that she was personally responsible for everything taking place at the exhibition hall.
Finally the exhibition was opened at the premises of the regional cell of the United Civil Party. Chairman of the Society of Polish Artists Stanislau Kichka considers that it is the best way out of the current situation.
And it was decided to arrange the exposition of the pastels of Moscow artist Valery Rubanenko at the Hrodna exhibition hall which was to be open in a fortnight.
