Solo Exhibition of Eric Leroux (Exhibition Opening)

Opening of the solo exhibition of Eric Leroux at Salon Natasha, 15 April 1994. On the right is Chantal Roman Vals (a French teacher at the Alliance Francaise; close friend with Vu Dan Tan and Natasha Kraevskaia).
The exhibition was organised by Leroux himself, with Vu Dan Tan and Natasha Kraevskaia were prohibited to enter Vietnam after their trip to Russia and France out of visa problems.

Eric Leroux was a French teacher and a self-taught artist. He had been working at the French Cultural Centre (Alliance Francaise) in Hanoi from 1992 to 1998. Being a knowledgeable, creative, and sociable person, he had significant influence on artists in Hanoi who in the early 1990s still had limited access to information on contemporary art outside Vietnam. Leroux introduced to many artists the idea of a 'collaborative form of art'. He also shared his insights in regards to organising exhibitions and art performances. During his stay in Hanoi he remained close ties with Salon Natasha, facilitating the management of the art space.
