    IAN CHENG – EMISSARY FORKS FEATURING THOUSAND ISLANDS - Louis Vuitton Art & Travel NEWS
    On April 21, 2017, the Espace Louis Vuitton München is pleased to present EMISSARY FORKS featuring THOUSAND ISLANDS, by American artist Ian Cheng.

    EMISSARY FORKS featuring THOUSAND ISLANDS is the first monographic exhibition in an institution in Germany by Ian Cheng. Conceived in the framework of the 'Hors-les-murs' program of the Fondation Louis Vuitton, it commemorates Cheng's progressive practice in new digital art and honours his receipt of the 2017 ""Award for the Filmic Oeuvre"", presented by Louis Vuitton in association with KINO DER KUNST. 

    Drawing on the principles of video game design, cognitive science and improvisation, Cheng develops 'live simulations' – living virtual ecosystems that begin with basic programmed properties, but are left to self-evolve without authorial intent or prescribed endings. The works model the dynamics of imaginative organisms and objects, but with the unforgiving causality found in nature itself.

  • TIME CAPSULE EXHIBITION IN HONG KONG

    Louis Vuitton is pleased to announce the opening of its 'Time Capsule' exhibition, from April 22nd until May 14th, a hand selected collection of exhibited pieces from the Louis Vuitton archive.

    Concurrently with the 20th anniversary of the HKSAR, and the 25th anniversary silver Jubilee of Le French May, Hong Kong has been chosen as the first stop for Time Capsule.  With free entry for the public to the exhibition, Time Capsule begins with French artisans demonstrating traditional leatherwork skills that remain as relevant today as they have in the past century.  The exhibition then follows a visual timeline of landmark moments in the Louis Vuitton story, focusing on five key aspects such as the Codes of the House, Journeys around the World, Elegance and Beauty in Motion, Icons of the House and a Celebration of the House’s Past and Present links with Hong Kong.

    Visitors will enjoy unprecedented access to some of the most valuable pieces from Louis Vuitton’s archives and specially curated artworks by local Hong Kong artists will also be showcased at the exhibition. Guided tours of the exhibition will also be provided to local community groups including schools and charities.

  • MASTERS - A COLLABORATION WITH JEFF KOONS

    Louis Vuitton unveils a new collection of bags and accessories designed with the artist

    In recent years, Louis Vuitton has affirmed its engagement with the world of art through a series of high-profile collaborations with the most influential artists of our times.

    In the French House’s latest collaboration, Louis Vuitton is working with the New York-based artist Jeff Koons to create a new range of bags and accessories to be launched on 28th April.

    One of the most widely recognised figures in contemporary art, Koons has brought imagery from his long-standing ‘Gazing Ball’ paintings – a series of large-scale hand-painted reproductions of works by the Old Masters – to a range of Louis Vuitton products. His re-creations of masterpieces by da Vinci, Titian, Rubens, Fragonard and Van Gogh have been transposed on to such iconic Louis Vuitton bags as the Speedy, the Keepall and the Neverfull.
