There Were Two Young Men, 1971
3 July – 26 August 2019
The ground-floor spaces, after hosting the Courtauld Collection, now display a set of six monumental charcoal drawings on paper done by Gilbert & George in 1971. This highly immersive work, There Were Two Young Men, here in its first Paris exhibition, is exhibited for a limited time only due to the fragile nature of the drawings.
The video sculptures Gordon’s Makes Us Drunk (1972), In the Bush (1972) and A Portrait of the Artists as Young Men (1970) are exhibited alongside this presentation.
CHARLOTTE PERRIAND, 1903 – 1999
A Creator in the Century
Le Corbusier – Léger – Picasso – Calder – Miro…
2 October 2019 – 24 February 2020
For the first time, and in all of its galleries, the Fondation Louis Vuitton will explore the connections between art, architecture and design in a major exhibition dedicated to visionary architect and designer Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999). Paintings, sculptures, tapestries and photographs form an exceptional collection of works related to her designs, by artists such as Fernand Léger, Pablo Picasso, Alexandre Calder, Joan Miro and Henri Laurens, all juxtaposed with reconstructions, giving visitors the chance to wholly enter Charlotte Perriand’s contemporary world. The Fondation follows the thread of this fascinating and creative life, a journey into the 20th century with a free-spirited, dedicated woman.
Espace Louis Vuitton Venezia
11 May – 24 November 2019
Philippe Parreno has created a unique project for the Fondation at the Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton Venice as part of the 58th annual Biennale di Venezia. The exhibition is a polyphonic, multiform creation expressed through a variety of media: films, information technology, soundtracks, drawings, videos, sculptures. Perception loses its reliable landmarks to enter a stimulating exploration that parallels the Biennale theme, “May you live in interesting times”, experiencing new ways to see and understand reality.
