7 June 2017
The Louis Vuitton Foundation collaborates with the prestigious Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) for the exhibition Being Modern. The New York Museum will exhibit 200 works to illustrate the history of modern art in its own way from October 11, 2017 to March 5, 2018.
The history of MoMA displayed at the Louis Vuitton Foundation
The Louis Vuitton Foundation is once again partnering with a renowned museum to stir up the curiosity of Parisian visitors. The entity attracted more than 1 million visitors last year by collaborating with the Pouckine Museum in Moscow and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg for the Shchukin exhibition. In 2017, the LVMH Museum moved closer to the famous MoMA in New York. The large museum of modern and contemporary art will bring together 200 works within the Louis Vuitton Foundation from 11 October 2017. An exceptional event as this will be the first exhibition of MoMA in France. The 200 works that will temporarily integrate the Louis Vuitton Foundation will come from the six departments of MoMA. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, films and other digital works, performances, architectural and design objects will be on display.
From Cézanne to Picasso to Shigetaka Kurita
The MoMA exhibition at the Louis Vuitton Foundation will retrace the history of modern art from the perspective of the collections of the New York Museum. The MoMa will invite to question the interpretations of works of modern art by presenting the creations of ancestral artists such as Picasso and Cézanne but also of current creators like Shigetaka Kurita. The rooms of the Louis Vuitton Foundation will also offer a course of documentary material from the MoMA archives. The photographs and videos will allow visitors to learn more about the history of the prestigious New York Museum.
