The Fondation Louis Vuitton, located in Paris has become, since Its creation in 2014, an essential place for art lovers.
Making art and culture accessible
The Fondation Louis Vuitton, located in the Bois de Boulogne, a stone’s throw from the Jardin d’Acclimatation, opened its doors on October 27, 2014. Driven by a mission of general interest, the Foundation is committed to making art and culture accessible to all. In order to promote artistic creation on a national and international level, it relies on temporary exhibitions of modern and contemporary art, presentations of works from its collection, commissions from artists, as well as multidisciplinary events (concerts , performances, conferences, screenings, dance, etc.).
An iconic building in the capital
The Fondation Louis Vuitton’s collections and programming are deeply rooted in the history of 20th and 21st century artistic movements and exhibited in an architectural setting designed by the American Frank Gehry. The visionary architect is revolutionizing the use of glass and creating forms never imagined before, to give birth to a bright, light, unique and innovative building. From an initial sketch penciled on the blank page of a notebook, Frank Gehry imagined “a magnificent vessel which symbolizes the cultural vocation of France”. The architectural route retraces the creation of this building, which has become an iconic building in the capital. In addition to the artistic and architectural treasures of the Louis Vuitton Foundation, visitors can enjoy the panoramic views offered from the building’s various terraces. Anxious to offer a sensitive experience and a moment of discovery to all its audiences around art and architecture, the Foundation offers unique Visits and Workshops.
