  • "FOULARDS D’ARTISTES", STREET ART ACROSS THE GLOBE

    This spring, Louis Vuitton continues its world tour of the vibrant street art scene by inviting three new artists from three different continents to collaborate on its collections of scarves.

    Californian artist Kenny Scharf is a remarkable figure of New York early eighties’ art scene in the fields of painting, sculpture, and performance, alongside iconic artists like Keith Haring. Pursuing his on-going process of connecting fine arts and pop culture, he has covered Louis Vuitton’s giant silk crepe square with a colourful collage of astronomic motifs and symbols on a blurred psychedelic background.

    For André Saraiva, his studio drop cloth was the inspiration for the background of his interpretation of Louis Vuitton’s Monogram shawl. Once he had translated his paint spatters to the luxurious silk and wool wrap, it became a natural habitat for ‘Mr. A’, the artist’s signature character, his asymmetrical eyes character, who inhabits the walls and art galleries of Paris as well as in many other international cities.

    True to his name, derived from the Inca sun god, INTI is inspired by ancestral Andean culture, which he transcribes in brightly coloured, monumental works. He revisits the giant square with a sun motif Infused with warm shades of gold and orange, referencing the image of ‘Wiracocha’, god of TIWANAKU culture.

    The 23rd exhibition of the Espace culturel Louis Vuitton in Paris takes visitors on a journey into the Astral depths exploring impenetrable worlds… until May 11th 2014.

    Astralis is based on the poem by Novalis, a famous figure in early 19th century German Romanticism, and refers to the concept of the mystified self: an individual who confuses dreams and reality and who, like the artists and visitors of the exhibition, lives at the border between the visible and the invisible.

    Experience these celestial and elusive dimensions in the remarkable resurgence of the dozen international artists’ works selected by curator Pascal Pique for Musée de l’Invisible.

    The exhibition  “Traces of Disappearance” is taking place at the Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo until 13th of April, 2014.

    For its 9th exhibition, Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo presents a group show entitled “Traces of Disappearance” curated by Murielle Hladik and Eva Kraus.

    With the ambivalence between conservation and decomposition, and between the desire for eternity and ephemerality as its theme, this exhibition invites visitors to reflect on the passage of time. Including human beings and the artifacts created by them, nothing in this world is eternal, but subject to the machinations of time. The featured artists, Naoya Hatakeyama, Kasper Kovitz, Anne and Patrick Poirier, and Goang-Ming Yuan express this concept with various motifs, materials and media.

    We hope you will enjoy the exhibition which will raise universal questions deeply related to the existence of human beings.
