LVMH Set to Open New Museum in Paris, the “Foundation Louis Vuitton”

Well past its due date of 2010, the Foundation Luis Vuitton is finally scheduled to open this year, on October 27th – and at 126,000 square feet, boasting 11 galleries, a 350-seat auditorium and an education centre, you really can’t miss it.

The beautiful building was designed by Pritzker Prize winner, Frank Gehry, who was inspired by the work of writer Marcel Proustand and, along with its 3,600 sheets of glass (used to remind beholders of a ship’s sails billowing in wind), will open alongside Gehry’s first European retrospective of work, to be held in the Centre Pompidou.

The space will play temporary host to LVMH’s collection of contemporary art, which spans the 20th and 21st centuries, as well as showcase a range of installations and commissions from internationally acclaimed artists, with an overall ambition to;

“…Encourage and promote artistic creation both in France and internationally.”
