Thanks to the efforts of Wrocław City Gallery, the exhibition Correspondage presenting visual correspondence from 1986–1987 between one of the most prominent artists of the 20th century, Jiři Kolář and a young Parisian, Béatrice Bizot is displayed at The Wrocław Museum of Architecture. The exhibition presents collages by Kolář never-seen-before in public created by the artist and sent every day to then 20-year-‑old French girl in exchange for her daily letters to him. The exhibition also presents chosen sculptures by Bizot, being a natural output of this unique dialogue.
