The Collection of La Fondation Louis Vuitton, Selected works
This "Hors les murs" presentation represents the Fondation's commitment to modern and contemporary art. The curaturial choices for the exhibition have taken into account the specificities of the Pushkin State Museum and features a variety of monographic series and powerful works, from different media.
The exhibition focusses on the main thematic strands that comprise the Collection, including : - Subjective expressionism with artists who examine universal themes such as life, death, love, anxiety and solitude: Alberto Giacometti, Yves Klein, Annette Messager, Isa Genzken, Maurizio Cattelan, Mark Bradford, Wolfgang Tillmans, Mona Hatoum... - A "popism" line, bringing together works committed to current expressions of contemporary life : Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andreas Gursky, Bertrand Lavier... - Music/sound stands as an original direction to which the Fondation is especially attached. It is present here in two large installations by Pierre Huyghe and Marina Abramovic.
- The "contemplative" line highlights an emotional relationship with the world and nature: Dan Flavin, Tacita Dean, Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke, Christian Boltanski...
Two spaces are dedicated to the Fondation's achitecture by Frank Gehry. Models, drawings, videos and panoramic photos are displayed, allowing the Russian public to picture the Fondation as an achitectural entity, as well as in its Parisian environment, at the heart of the Bois de Boulogne.
Collection of Fondation Louis Vuitton: Selected Works is presented in conjunction with another exhibition devoted to the Shchukin Collection. The first version of which was held at the Fondation Louis Vuitton from 22nd October 2016 to 5th March 2017.
