Espace Louis Vuitton Venice

  • Gerade geschlossen

Like the four other Louis Vuitton cultural spaces already in existence around the world ( Tokyo, Hong Kong, Taipei and Singapore), this centre is intended as a venue for the expression of contemporary art and an invitation on an original and authentic voyage to the heart of creation.Just a stone’s throw from St Mark’s Square, in the Maison Louis Vuitton, the Louis Vuitton cultural space in Venice is where contemporary art meets Venice’s artistic heritage. With each new exhibition, a contemporary artist will have carte blanche to respond – with an original, in-situ creation – to an art-work from the Venetian heritage. Putting traditional and modern art into context like this is a means of breaking down barriers, of re-attaching contemporary art to its roots and celebrating the extraordinary vitality and topicality of classical art. It’s also an alternative way to portray the treasures of Venice.
