Do you know the brand Louis Vuitton ? Well it is part of a multinational group run by one of our billionaire (the 2nd richest man in France to be more precise) which is called LVMH. Not the guy (his name is Bernard Arnault), the company !!
Well, the guy loves art (for the beauty of it and its fiscal attraction) and he wanted to have a brilliant collection of arts! A few years ago, he decided to work with Franck Gehry (the architect of the Sidney Opera for example) to build a magnificent palace in the public park Bois de Boulogne. The Fondation opened in 2014 and the media did a really great introduction. And we understand why: everything is gorgeous in there !
There are different exhibitions throughout the year like the photographer Gerhard Richter or the videographer Pierre Huyghe (for example!).
No politics or sex there, only classic contemporary arts.
It is really great stuff there. You feel that the guy is rich and loves rich people too 🙂 Anyway this collection is gorgeous.
And there are musical or dance (20th century and contemporary photography) programs as well. And a fine restaurant !
Plus, the garden around the foundation is really well maintained. You shall have a look there !
Our tip is to book the tickets in advance, to make sure you won’t wait for hours outside the Foundation.
