Exhibition “Everything is Golden” by Michelle Wise Opening: Thu 29 Oct 2015, 6 pm Exhibition: 29 Oct – 12 Nov 2015 Spacebar Cafe 15/76 To Ngoc Van, Tay Ho Dist, Hanoi Join us for the opening of “EVERYTHING IS GOLDEN”, a selection of paintings and contemporary lacquer by Michelle Wise. “EVERYTHING IS GOLDEN” is a series of works developed out of Wise’s personal interest in using colours and simple geometric shapes to explore how spatial and color relationships have the power to evoke emotional responses.

Twenty years in the long history of the two nations are just like a blink, but in that "blink", the two countries have made very important steps. Indeed, even with abundant imagination, 20 years ago it was hard to imagine that the relations between the two former enemies in an extremely brutal war can develop powerfully, with great promising prospects like they are today. Despite many existing problems, the US-Vietnam relationship exists today thanks to the joint efforts of the leaders and people of both countries. Among American … [Read more...] about A well-known American politician and the fate of Vietnam
