EventThe 70th Anniversary of the Dina Vierny Gallery
Dina Vierny, who opened her gallery in Paris in 1947, took responsibility for strong independence of thought and action in the choice of artists she promoted. She pursued a unending battle to defend her policy: the love of the artists with whom she came into contact, the faithfulness she devoted to them, against wind and tide, sometimes against the tastes of her time, The anniversary exhibition organised to mark the gallery’s 70 years doesn’t claim to have drawn up an inventory of the eclecticism of the artistic personalities shown during this period.
EventRichard Gordon, Loved photography too much
With the ubiquity of the photographic medium today, Richard Gordon’s work reminds us just how compelling an informed and creative perspective can be. Often his images are witty and quirky and evoke his dry sense of humor. The work in this exhibition was taken primarily in the 1970’s in New York City and along the West Coast.
EventThe Chelnokov Collection: The history of the Russian exodus through photographs
On the occasion of the centenary of the Russian revolution, VOZ’Galerie in Paris presents, in its basement screening room, an exhibition of photographs and a 3D projection of stereoscopic images by Natacha Nikouline’s great-great-uncle, Sergei Chelnokov.

According to the latest census conducted in 2013, the Chinese comprise about 3.7% of today's New Zealand population: over 170,000 people. These include recent migrants primarily originating from China, but also many other parts of the world, with about one quarter being local-born.
