As the third phase of its inaugural programme, Fondation Louis Vuitton presents an important exhibition entitled Keys to a passion, which will be held from April 1 to July 6 2015. This exhibition gathers a select choice of major works which have been key to the development of modernity, and have changed the course of art history in the 20th century. It includes works from artists such as Mondrian, Malevich, Rothko, Delaunay, Léger, Picabia, Munch, Dix, Giacometti, Matisse, Kupka and Severini.
Following on from previous announcements, Keys to a passion highlights the Foundation’s collaborative relationships with major French and international institutions. Lenders to this exhibition include : The State Hermitage museum, Saint Petersburg; Tate Modern, London; MoMA, New York; The Munch Museum, Oslo; Guggenheim, New York; Gemeentemuseum, The Hague; The Pushkin Museum, Moscow; The Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo; The State Russian Museum, Moscow; MNAM-Centre Pompidou, Paris; Kunsthaus, Zürich; MOCA, Los Angeles.
The exhibition addresses that which lies at the edge of our senses and knowledge, of our imagination and our expectations. It is about the horizon that divides, for each of us, the known from the unknown.
More about the exhibition.
The opening of the Fondation Louis Vuitton is the opportunity to revisit an extraordinary architectural adventure, through an exhibition dedicated to the building designed by Frank Gehry. The curatorship has been entrusted to Frédéric Migayrou, assisted by Sébastien Cherruet, in close cooperation with the teams at Gehry Partners in Los Angeles. The intention is to give the public an opportunity to immerse themselves in the project's beginnings and aims to present the design work in its entirety, from the first sketches to the completion of building work.
From 17 December 2014, we invite you to discover the second phase in the presentation of the Fondation Collection. This second exhibition will feature a more substantial selection divided into expressionist (Ed Atkins, Maurizio Cattelan, Isa Genzken, Alberto Giacometti, Rachel Harrisson, Annette Messager and Wolfgang Tillmans) and contemplative (Bas Jan Ader, Tacita Dean, Mona Hatoum, Nam June Paik, Giuseppe Penone, Sigmar Polke, Thomas Schütte and Akram Zaatari) works.
