  • Modern/contemporary art

The Louis Vuitton Foundation opened its doors in 2014 in a building designed by the architect Frank Gehry. 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, artist commissions, as well as multidisciplinary events (concerts, performances, symposiums, screenings, dance...).

Architect Franck Gehry designed this daring building full of movement and transparency, a reference to the glass architecture of 19th century gardens. Floating over a lake, this vessel with its twelve glass sails creates a harmonious whole with its natural environment in the Bois de Boulogne, next to the Jardin d’Acclimatation.
