HÀ NỘI - Painter Lê Thiết Cương will open his newest exhibition on March 12 at L’Espace, 24 Tràng Tiền Street.

More than 30 artworks created on different materials such as pastel on poonah paper, oil on canvas and pottery will be on display.
Earlier, in January, the launch of the poetry collection An Unknown River was hosted by the French Cultural Centre (L'Espace) to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the death of the poet (1924-1990) who was central to the country's poetry development. The book comprises six poems, as well as 20 small paintings and writings, about the poet and his poems by poets and researchers Hoàng Cầm, Hoàng Hưng and Đỗ Lai Thúy.
The exhibition will open to the public from 6pm, March 12 until April 4. VNS
