Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris
Exhibition on until August 27, 2018
A must visit as much for the fabulous building as for the art inside!
We decided to drive down to Paris to visit this exhibition in the marvellous building that is the Louis Vuitton Foundation on the Avenue Mahatama Ghandi in Paris – the SNCF were having one of their strike days – and what a delight!
The premise of the exhibtion is the place of human beings in the world and how we react to living things in that world, be it animal, plant or mineral, and draws together contemporay artists together with the likes of Matisse, Giacometti and Yves Klein.
The exhibition is essentially divided into two parts; the first entitled “Man in the living Universe” brings together 28 different international artists, in three sections:
Irradiances – a dialogue with nature. This section is supposedly inspired by Dan Flavin’s “Light Beam” – ‘Untitled’ 1963 (below) and brings together works linked by affinities of sensibility.
