From June 4th, the Espace culturel Louis Vuitton has launched IN SITU–1, the first edition of an open studio program where international artists are invited to produce an artwork under your eyes.

For this first edition, Parisian visitors will witness all stages of the creative process — from inspiration to fruition — and experience unique encounters with American artist, Andrea Bowers (featured above), until September 2014. Her final artwork will remain exhibited in Paris from September 26th, 2014 till January 4th, 2015. Meanwhile, the program will continue in Tokyo with South Korean artist Min-Jeong Seo, and in Munich with Malaysian artist Simryn Gill.

These three artists will work with a variety of media and literally start with a “blank page“ at each location, being entirely free to choose the way they inhabit and transform each Espace.

As Michael Burke, Chairman and CEO at Louis Vuitton, says: “A defined passion for creation has always been at the core of Louis Vuitton, which translates into the idea of witnessing how new work materializes and share the experience of the creative process”.
