The term Cubo-Futurism was brought into circulation by Marcel Boulanger in October 1912 and was used by Italian critics in relation to the work of some of the French Cubists and Italian Futurists. It was most likely introduced into the Russian lexicon by the artist Alexandra Exter. Between 1912 and 1914, Exter spent a lot of time in Paris, where she lived with the Italian Futurist Ardengo Soffici in the same hostel as Popova and many other young Russian artists and served as a liaison between Russian, French, and Italian artists and critics.
