As many of you already know 30 Upstairs had the privilege of showcasing a selection of works from the Les and Milly Paris Collection. Les and Milly housed their stunning collection in Strathmore, Wellington which meant we had the pleasure of Milly’s company opening night.
It was a wonderful opportunity for people local to Wellington to get the chance to see some of New Zealand’s most seminal artworks before going to auction. 30 Upstairs was full of new faces over that weekend including many artists and collectors. Plenty of stories were exchanged between our visitors about the histories of the works over the two days- while others were speechless at the splendor. The auction takes place next week and we thought it would be nice to share some of our photographs from the quieter moments.
If you are in Auckland next week there are viewings of the entire collection before they are put under the hammer. You can get more details from Art+Object.
