Culture vultures, get your fix with The Fondation Louis Vuitton. It’s possible for you to visit some of the most astounding virtual tours offered by the maison. No queues and huge crowds of selfie enthusiasts.
1. On Thursday, April 16th at 12am MYT, the Fondation invites you to focus on ‘Olafur Eliasson: Contact’, a monographic exhibition devoted to the renowned Danish-Icelandic artist.
2. On Saturday, April 18th at 2.30am MYT, lift up your weekend’s spirit with pianist Alexandre Kantorow and his favourite composer, Brahms, both fervent defenders of traditional Hungarian music.
3. On Sunday, April 19th at 11.30pm MYT, enjoy a cheeky glass of wine with cellist Gautier Capuçon, as you tune into his closing concert of the ‘Classe d’Excellence de Violoncelle’, season 2016-2017.
Since its opening in 2014, the Frank Gehry-designed Fondation Louis Vuitton has showcased artists including Joan Mitchell, Andy Warhol, and Yayoi Kusama. Among the highlights was Kusama’s signature ‘Infinity Mirror Room’ in 2019. The installation crystallises the fantasies of the artist she has had since childhood, where she was totally obsessed with peas. It’s a dizzying immersion into a completely otherworldly hallucination. The mirrors reflected into infinite, creating an overwhelming sense of endlessness.
All the digital events will be made available from the Fondation’s Facebook page, YouTube channel, and its website, of course. Follow #FLVfromhome on Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook so you don’t miss out the latest updates.
