Louis Vuitton celebrates over 160 years of creative exchange and artistic collaborations with a new & Exhibition in Tokyo. The Maison brings together an exceptional selection partnerships with some of the most acclaimed artistic minds from Japan, from Kansai Yamamoto to Fragment’s Hiroshi Fujiwara, or Yayoi Kusama to Nigo®.
Tracing a rich and pioneering journey, it plays out as ten immersive spaces that bring together remarkable early twentieth-century special-order trunks; beautiful window displays designed by Louis Vuitton’s grandson, Gaston-Louis; iconic Monogram bags reimagined by today’s most acclaimed creative minds, such as Karl Lagerfeld, Cindy Sherman, Rei Kawakubo and Frank Gehry; and original collaborations and commissions by artists including Arata Isozaki, Richard Prince, Zaha Hadid, and the more recent Artycapucines collection.
From the tradition of trunk-making to the invention of Takashi Murakami’s “Superflat” art, the respect for savoir-faire and innovation is shared and ever-present. In this way, visitors will experience the exhibition as a bridge connecting Paris to Tokyo, across a universe of talent and through time.
The exhibition will be on see from 19th March till 16th May 2021 at Louis Vuitton &, Shibuya-ku Tokyo.
