Fondation Louis Vuitton : Being Modern: MoMA in Paris
Posted in Culture le
Fondation Louis Vuitton and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) announce the first exhibition in France to present MoMA's unparalleled collection : Being Modern: MoMA in Paris, on view at Fondation Louis Vuitton from october 11, 2017, through March 5, 2018.
"Exhibition Being Modern: MoMA in Paris" features masterworks by artists including Paul Cézanne, Marcel Duchamp, Walker Evans, Gustav Klimt, René Magritte, Pablo Picasso, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Frank Stella and Paul Signac. A selection of rarely shown documentary material from MoMA's Archiveswill be incorporated in the galleries of Fondation Louis Vuitton.
An integrated, cross-disciplinary selection of 200 works, drawn from all six of the Museum’s curatorial departments and reflecting the history of the institution and its collecting, will fill the entirety of the Fondation’s Frank Gehry–designed building. Curated jointly by the two institutions, the display brings together paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, films, media works, performances, and architecture and design objects, tracing the evolution and multifaceted scope of MoMA’s collection. The exhibition was conceived in relation to the architecture and interior spaces of the Fondation Louis Vuitton building, allowing a compelling historical narrative across its four floors.
The exhibition opens with MoMA's first decade, including such iconic works as Edward Hopper's House by the Railroad (acquired in 1930), Paul Cézanne's The Bather (acquired 1934), as well as Walker Evan's Posed Portraits, New York (acquired in 1938).
