• AMERICA'S CUP A LIFE LONG QUEST

    Freedom, courage, skill and competence: the true spirit of Louis Vuitton.

    Louis Vuitton and the America’s Cup enjoy one of the longest partnerships in the world of sports, dating back to 1983.

    Six teams have so far taken up the challenge of racing for the next America’s Cup. The defending champion is Oracle Team USA. The challengers are Emirates Team New Zealand, Artemis Racing (SWE), Land Rover Bar  (GBR), SoftBank Team Japan (JPN) and Groupama Team France.

    The America's Cup is the oldest trophy in international sport. The first race was organised by the Royal Yacht Squadron and was a single race around the Isle of Wight, open to all nations. The amazing thing is that the event started in the UK in 1851 and Great Britain has yet to win it!

    The first Louis Vuitton America's Cup World Series will take place in Portsmouth from July 23rd until July 26th, 2015.

  • "BEYOND THE WALLS" EXHIBITION IN BEIJING

    The exhibition “Fondation Louis Vuitton building in Paris by Frank Gehry” will be held in Beijing from 19th June to 16th August 2015, first step of the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s project abroad.

    As stated during its inauguration, the Fondation Louis Vuitton intends to deploy its artistic activities not only in Paris but also abroad. The first step of this "beyond-the-walls" programme will take place in Beijing from 19th June to 16th August 2015, in a specially allocated venue within the 'China World' complex.

    From early sketches to the completion of work, the monographic exhibition focuses on Frank Gehry’s project for the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris. It offers a new vision of the creative universe of the architect and Laureate of the prestigious Pritzker Prize in 1989, who has described the Foundation as a 'magnificent vessel that symbolizes France’s profound cultural vocation'.

    The show will then travel to Tokyo, where it will be held in the Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton from 15th October 2015. Future events in the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s "beyond-the-walls" art programme will be announced subsequently.

    Louis Vuitton presents an exploration of the colorful city of Havana in collaboration with artists.

    Highlighting the city's beautiful but forgotten areas, international artists unite as a form of recognition to Cuban Heritage and its cultural landscape.

    Various people come together to form symbols of this Third Paradise. Musicians merge at the Plaza de la Catedral as a performance piece while playing different percussion instruments. Circles symbolizing nature and artifice merge in this stand for rebirth.

    Buren's work is installed on the streets and in an abandoned train station. Anish Kapoor's video is projected inside an iconic cinema.
    "Third paradise" is the name of Pistoletto's artworks and performance.

    Louis Vuitton is pleased to support artists at the Havana Biennale in Cuba, opening this 22nd of May.

    At the forefront of change, Louis Vuitton seeks to propose new views around travel and cultures across the globe. The House has continually contributed to move the frontiers of Fashion and Art by generating audacious projects and collaborating with visionaries.

    Among the Friends of the House who have contributed to generate images of our future, Louis Vuitton supports the following artists: Anish Kapoor, Daniel Buren, Michelango Pistoletto, Shilpa Gupta, Nikhil Chopra, José Yaque and local artist Carlos Garaicoa; all are represented by the Galleria Continua during the Biennale in Cuba.

    Between the idea and experience is a vast and varied space of possibilities, and in the hands of creators these unmanifest territories surface and embrace a diversity of identities that have yet to be seen.

    The Espace Louis Vuitton München is pleased to present “Be the first of your friends”, the first monographic show of American artist Cory Arcangel in Munich.

    The Espace Louis Vuitton in Munich is pleased to present the exhibition Be the first of your friends, an exhibition that brings together new works by Arcangel as well as a selection of seminal early pieces, which have been reconfigured by the artist for the exhibition.

    Be the first of your friends covers several themes, which have been vital to Arcangel's work since the early aughts, including the preservation of early computer technologies (dating from the 1980s) and the recuperation of contemporary art materials and digital sources such as the Internet and YouTube. Arcangel’s unique approach to making art stems from his education in classical guitar, which coincided with the start of the digital revolution and inspired him to self-identify as a “computer programmer, composer and artist.”
