IRWIN's Miran Mohar in conversation with the Director of Tate Britain, Penelope Curtis, at CHELSEA space

After Miran Mohar came from Ljubljana for the private view of Neue Slowenische Kunst 1984 – 1992 we were delighted this week that other members of IRWIN came to CHELSEA space to meet us and view the exhibition.
