Art Exhibition “Le Sourire de la Mutation”
Institut Français de Hanoi – L’Espace
24 Trang Tien, Hanoi
Art exhibition “La sourire de la mutation” (translation: The smile of mutation) presents a poetic perspective of Vietnam in its metamorphosis. The three artists, coming from three different countries – France, Belgium and Vietnam – explore the theme of the changes in urban space through different perspectives: visual, dance and installation art. The scenery of Vietnam’s metropolitan cities is illustrated in Truong Minh Thy Nguyen’s mural. The sun jacket covered ladies on motorbikes become the muses for Emmanuelle Vincent’s dance piece. And objects dangle between fantasy and tradition in the installation artwork of Pierre Larauza.
This exhibition is part of the Dance Festival “Europe Meets Asia in Contemporary Dance” 2017.
Exhibition “West Lake” by Anna-Maria Ory
Dong Phong Art Gallery

The subject and technique of the pictures mix the elements of both Eastern and Western traditions, in an attempt to establish connections between two very different cultures which nevertheless have a lot in common.
Exhibition “Vietnam in Cyanotype: Batch 1” by Julie Vola

Born in the South of France in 1983, Julie Vola is currently working as the Photo editor for Word Vietnam. She arrived in Hanoi 7 years ago in search of her own family’s past, after inheriting her grandfather’s personal photographs from his life in Hanoi.
