New Exhibition at Fondation Louis Vuitton

In Tune with the World, a new exhibition at Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris, France, invites visitors to reflect upon the place of humankind within the universe and the relationship between people, their environment and the living world.

From April 11 – August 27, the exhibition features modern and contemporary works by nearly 30 artists including Alberto Giacometti, Henri Matisse, Gerhard Richter, Pierre Huyghe, Yves Klein and Takashi Murakami.

The exhibition spans all the galleries at Fondation Louis Vuitton. Part A on Level Two of the building (galleries nine, 10 and 11) is entirely devoted to the world and works of Murakami. Conceived following a collaboration with the artist, this hanging is organised in three sequences; one centred on the artist’s alter ego DOB; a fresco, The Octopus Eats its Own Leg, displayed for the first time in public; and a sequence featuring the kawaii (meaning cute) aesthetic.

Part B is titled, Man in the Living Universe, featuring 28 French and international artists from different generations and works covering a variety of media and techniques. This part stretches throughout the other three levels of the building, as well as the exterior.
