Fondation Louis Vuitton launches the second phase of its inaugural program with an expansive exhibition by Olafur Eliasson, from December 17th, 2014 to February 16th, 2015.

"Contact", Olafur Eliasson’s exhibition, explores “the relations between self, space, and universe” by creating a cosmos within the Fondation.

"Contact", Eliasson’s first solo show in France since his 2002 exhibition at the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, envelops visitors in a choreography of moving lights and shadows, seemingly transporting them into the darkness of outer space. A number of smaller optical devices distributed throughout specially built passageways continue the artist’s ongoing investigations into the mechanisms of perception and the construction of space.

As Olafur Eliasson explains, “My 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.”

Chief Curator : Suzanne Pagé
Curators: Laurence Bossé and Hans Ulrich Obrist, in close cooperation with Claire Staebler, together with Olafur Eliasson and his studio.
