Foundation Louis Vuitton
From 20 Feb. to 26 August 2019, The collection of the Fondation. A vision for painting.
In a few words
Designed by architect Frank Gehry, the Louis Vuitton Foundation building is a work of art in itself. Marvel at the structure from the outside before entering the museum with your ticket. Explore the 11 galleries of the Foundation, taking in both the permanent and temporary exhibitions.
From an initial sketch drawn on a blank page in a notebook to the transparent cloud sitting at the edge of the Jardin d'Acclimatation in the Bois de Boulogne, Frank Gehry constantly sought to "design, in Paris, a magnificent vessel symbolising the cultural calling of France". A creator of dreams, he has designed a unique, emblematic and bold building. Respectful of a history rooted in French culture of the 19th century, Frank Gehry dared to use technological achievements of the 21st century, opening the way for pioneering innovation.
This great architectural exploit has already taken its place among the iconic works of 21st-century architecture. Frank Gehry's building, which reveals forms never previously imagined until today, is the reflection of the unique, creative and innovative project that is the Fondation Louis Vuitton.
With your entrance ticket, enjoy a skip-the-line access to the Foundation and spend as much time as you like admiring the different exhibitions.
The current exhibition The collection of the Fondation. A vision for painting displays a new selection of 70 works from the collection and gathers 23 international artists from the 1960s to the present day around one main theme : painting. This takes many forms: figurative or abstract, expressive or distanced. Relief pieces are contrasted with each other. Rooms devoted to Joan Mitchell, Alex Katz, Gerhard Richter, Ettore Spalletti, Yayoi Kusama and Jesús Rafael Soto alternate with thematic collections on abstraction, space and colour. The hanging shows the ways in which painting never ceases to reinvent itself and transgress its own rules, drawing on current techniques for reproduction.
Later on, venture a little further to learn about the many services offered by the Foundation. With a documentation center containing thousands of printable articles, a bookshop, and a Michelin-starred restaurant, you are sure to find something that catches your eye.
After your visit, feel free to take a walk in the Jardin d Acclimatation, located next to the museum.
