Exhibition: In Tune with the World

Until August 27th, 2018, the Foundation Louis Vuitton offers an exhibition around the place of Mankind in the universe. This retrospective brings together contemporary artworks never unveiled there before which aim to explore the interactions between humans and their environment. The scenography showcases two major parts that complement each other. The first is entirely devoted to the famous Japanese artist Takashi Murakami (born in 1962). In his colourful works, he daringly associates the aesthetics of Japanese comics with apocalyptic themes inspired by the history of his country. The second brings together works by 28 international artists from different periods, including, among others, the French Henri Matisse (1869-1954), Yves Klein (1928-1962) and Christian Boltanski (born in 1944), the Germans Gerhard Richter (born in 1932) and Sigmar Polke (1941-2010), the Swiss Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966), and the Americans Dan Flavin (1933-1996) and Kiki Smith (born in 1954). Their spectacular installations, paintings and sculptures can be discovered just a few subway stations away from the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni.
