"Basquiat ? Warhol, Four Hands."

  • It is a meeting between Andy Warholfigure of the Pop Art, so well known for its Marilyn or its cans of soup Campbells made in serigraphy, and Jean-Michel Basquiat an undeniable character of the New York underground scene of the 80s, inspired in his painting by the graffiti and the street Art.
  • This unique exhibition reveals the works that Basquiat and Warhol produced together, signed "four hands" - thus operating a symbiosis of their art, a third entity in a way! An extraordinary face to face !
  • To visit the most important exhibition ever devoted to this group of works in the buildings of the Fondation Louis Vuitton is to enter into an artistic universe in fusion!
  • From their meeting and from the world of the night will be born a deep friendship between the two artists who, mutually, nourish a still unknown artistic energy
  • It is a very beautiful Parisian exhibition which gives to see and feel several levels of reading, different emotions. Children will immediately find their marks in front of the works of Jean-Michel Basquiat, which calls upon the line of the drawing of child and the graffitias well as those produced in series and so colorful of Andy Warhol.

An explosion of colors and shapes that will catch on the whole family, without a doubt ! An ideal outing with the children and teenagers even when it's sunny to enjoy the incredible outdoor areas the architecture of the Foundation's building LVMH

The Louis Vuitton Foundation and the architecture of Franck Gehry

  • The Louis Vuitton Foundation was born of the patronage of the LVMH group and has set itself the goal of make art and culture accessible to all. It organizes temporary exhibitions of modern or contemporary art, presenting works from its collections or organizing musical events, screenings, conferences ... Also, discovery tours in family and workshops for thehildren, teens and even the babies !
  • The Foundation has been open to the public since 2014 in thehe Bois de Boulogne district in a magnificent ship-shaped building that we owe to Franck Gehryconsidered to be one of the the most important architects of the XXIe century. It is to him that we owe the buildings of the Cinémathèque Française in Pariswhere children love to go. He is also responsible for the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the capital of the Spanish Basque Country.
  • The Foundation's building is an architectural work in itselfThis is the first time that the company has used innovative materials such as large curved glass panels that receive light. They reflect the clouds, giving an impression of perpetual change and evolution! Set like a boat in the middle of the Bois de Boulogne, many terraces have a breathtaking view of the Jardin d'Acclimatation Access to which is included in the price of the entrance ticket.
  • The exterior of the Fondation Louis Vuitton reveals contemporary installations that offer a host of surprises as you stroll peacefully around the pools. An ideal walk with children when it's hot in the shadow of this superb building, never too big.
