Espaces Louis Vuitton

Espace Louis Vuitton is an exhibition place encouraging creation of new contemporary artworks in Tokyo, München, Venezia, Beijing, and Seoul.

Tokyo

The Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo, inaugurated in 2011, is located at the center of Omotesando, the most beautiful area in Tokyo where many trends and cultural movements spring. Embodying Louis Vuitton’s and Japan’s shared passion for creativity, the Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo is a glass box on the top floor of the Louis Vuitton building designed by Japanese architect Jun Aoki. It is both a visually stimulating architecture and an exhibition place encouraging creation of new contemporary artworks.

The Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo is pleased to present a group exhibition from a number of established and emerging artists curated by Virgil Abloh. Following Los Angeles, Beijing and Munich, this latest edition of COMING OF AGE compiled specifically for Tokyo centers around male youth and garners an international line up of both established and emerging talent. These 20 photographers offer a diverse and complex look at boyhood that traverses class, social economics, subcultures, isolation and camaraderie, focusing on those formative years of youth and optimism.

Venezia

Since 2013, the Espace Louis Vuitton Venezia is where contemporary art meets the artistic heritage of La Serenissima. Putting traditional and modern art into context, it offers a means of breaking down barriers, of re-attaching contemporary art to its roots and celebrating the vitality of classical art, with the support Louis Vuitton brings each year to the restauration of famous Venitian art. Alongside, Louis Vuitton invites to an unprecedented film programming in the heart of the legendary Spazio Etoile store in Rome.

As part of the Collateral Events of the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, the Fondation Louis Vuitton has invited French artist Philippe Parreno to create a whole new installation for the Espace. Three interdependent elements (a grand luminous marquee, a mechanical mirrored shutter and a phosphorescent wallpaper patterned with black irises) react thanks to a computer programme to the pace of the ongoing development of microorganisms collected during past exhibitions and harvested in a bioreactor specifically developed for the artist by the CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research) and the Physics Department of Ecole Nationale Supérieure (Paris, France). With its disruptive temporality, this exhibition annihilates the familiar markers of perception in favour of a stimulating process of inventing new ways of understanding, defying rational categories and the established order.

Parallel to the exhibition, the Spazio Etoile in Rome shows a unique film programming showcasing all the Fondation Louis Vuitton's activities since its opening in 2014.

Beijing

Inaugurated in 2017, the Espace Louis Vuitton Beijing is located in the Central Business District of the Chinese capital. Its 800m² exhibition space is dedicated exclusively to contemporary art exhibitions.

For its fifth exhibition within the framework of the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s "Hors-les-murs" programme, the Espace Louis Vuitton Beijing opens Photographs 1995-2007, an exhibition dedicated to German photographer Andreas Gursky. Supermarkets, skyscrapers, celebration and sport events, Gursky inventories the post-modern society production with the chaos of a crowd dwelling in, revealing the violent character of social constraint on human environments. His photographic images, produced as objects obeying their own aesthetic logic, are digitally retouched after the fact, blurring the ability to define a true "decisive moment". Molded with great virtuosity, they show a reality whose appearances are the products of pure manipulation, in our contemporary spectacle-centered world. Discover the troubling oeuvre of this leading artist through the presentation of one of his early pieces, Engadin I(1995), and a monumental ensemble, Boxenstopp I-IV(2007), that both belong to the Collection.

Seoul

Inaugurated in 2019, the Espace Louis Vuitton Seoul is nestled on the fourth floor of the Maison Louis Vuitton Seoul, the façade of which was designed by celebrated Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry. A glass structure inspired by the traditional Korean dance Dongnae Hakchum forms the shelter of a contemporary art space, reflecting the sails of the Fondation Louis Vuitton building in Paris.

The Espace Louis Vuitton Seoul is pleased to present a group exhibition from a number of established and emerging artists curated by Virgil Abloh. Following Los Angeles, Beijing, Munich and Tokyo, this latest edition of COMING OF AGE compiled specifically for Tokyo centers around male youth and garners an international line up of both established and emerging talent. These 18 photographers offer a diverse and complex look at boyhood that traverses class, social economics, subcultures, isolation and camaraderie, focusing on those formative years of youth and optimism.
