The MIAM, Musée International des Arts Modestes, created by Bernard Belluc and Hervé Di Rosa in Sète (South of France) is celebrating its 20th anniversary! Before being a museum, the Arts Modestes was a gallery, the Galerie de l’Art Modeste, created by the Di Rosa brothers and Hervé Perdriolle in Paris in 1989. A new adventure begins with the opening of the Modesti Perdriolle (!) Gallery in Brussels in September 2021
