As stated during its inauguration, the Fondation Louis Vuitton intends to deploy its artistic activities not only in Paris but also abroad. The first step of this "beyond-the-walls" programme will take place in Beijing from 19th June to 16th August 2015, in a specially allocated venue within the 'China World' complex.
From early sketches to the completion of work, the monographic exhibition focuses on Frank Gehry’s project for the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris. It offers a new vision of the creative universe of the architect and Laureate of the prestigious Pritzker Prize in 1989, who has described the Foundation as a 'magnificent vessel that symbolizes France’s profound cultural vocation'.
The show will then travel to Tokyo, where it will be held in the Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton from 15th October 2015. Future events in the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s "beyond-the-walls" art programme will be announced subsequently.

Louis Vuitton presents an exploration of the colorful city of Havana in collaboration with artists.
Highlighting the city's beautiful but forgotten areas, international artists unite as a form of recognition to Cuban Heritage and its cultural landscape.
Various people come together to form symbols of this Third Paradise. Musicians merge at the Plaza de la Catedral as a performance piece while playing different percussion instruments. Circles symbolizing nature and artifice merge in this stand for rebirth.
Buren's work is installed on the streets and in an abandoned train station. Anish Kapoor's video is projected inside an iconic cinema.
"Third paradise" is the name of Pistoletto's artworks and performance.

Louis Vuitton is pleased to support artists at the Havana Biennale in Cuba, opening this 22nd of May.
At the forefront of change, Louis Vuitton seeks to propose new views around travel and cultures across the globe. The House has continually contributed to move the frontiers of Fashion and Art by generating audacious projects and collaborating with visionaries.
Among the Friends of the House who have contributed to generate images of our future, Louis Vuitton supports the following artists: Anish Kapoor, Daniel Buren, Michelango Pistoletto, Shilpa Gupta, Nikhil Chopra, José Yaque and local artist Carlos Garaicoa; all are represented by the Galleria Continua during the Biennale in Cuba.
Between the idea and experience is a vast and varied space of possibilities, and in the hands of creators these unmanifest territories surface and embrace a diversity of identities that have yet to be seen.
