Espace Louis Vuitton
Espace Louis Vuitton is an exhibition place encouraging creation of new contemporary artworks in Tokyo, München, Venezia, Beijing, Seoul and Osaka.
The Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo, inaugurated in 2011, is located at the center of Omotesando, the most beautiful area in Tokyo where many trends and cultural movements spring. Embodying Louis Vuitton’s and Japan’s shared passion for creativity, the Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo is a glass box on the top floor of the Louis Vuitton building designed by Japanese architect Jun Aoki. It is both a visually stimulating architecture and an exhibition place encouraging creation of new contemporary artworks.
The Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo is honored to present the works of German photographer Wolfgang Tillmans. Since the late 1980s, Tillmans has developed a body of work that stretches the limits of photography and image creation. His photographs - small or large, sometimes monumental, in black-and-white or color, taken indoors or out, tacked to the wall or framed - revisit the traditional genres of portraiture, still life and landscape and experiment with printing techniques in photocopier-enlarged images or darkroom abstractions. The artist’s portraits possess a rare psychological intensity, revealing the singularity of each of his models by framing naturally and fluidly, capturing their movements, clothing styles and attitudes.

For Marilyn, the Espace Louis Vuitton München invites visitors to experience emblematic works from the Collection by Philippe Parreno in various media. Comprising drawings, sculpture and film, these works typify Parreno’s multidisciplinary practice through which he continues his quest to find an ultimate form of communication capable of transcending language.

Since 2013, the Espace Louis Vuitton Venezia is where contemporary art meets the artistic heritage of La Serenissima. Putting traditional and modern art into context, it offers a means of breaking down barriers, of re-attaching contemporary art to its roots and celebrating the vitality of classical art, with the support Louis Vuitton brings each year to the restauration of famous Venitian art.
The Espace Louis Vuitton Venezia is pleased to announce the opening of its new exhibition, “Apollo, Apollo”, displaying a whole new installation by German artist Katharina Grosse. Specifically created for the space, in a black setting, it features a compositive image of the artist’s hands printed on a metallic mesh fabric, depicting a moment where the boundaries between the artist’s body and the colored material blur in the act of creating. The surface reflects visitors’ movements and contributes to the quintessentially Venetian mirror effect. “Apollo, Apollo” blends the transparent with the opaque, letting light filter through, creating a gateway to a dreamlike world in which visitors question their own perceptions of reality and illusion.
As Collateral Event of the 59th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia, this presentation has been produced in the framework of the Fondation Louis Vuitton “Hors-les-murs” program, which unfolds at the Espaces Louis Vuitton in Tokyo, Munich, Venice, Beijing, Seoul and Osaka, realizing the Fondation’s commitment to mount international projects and make them accessible to a broader public.
From May this year, her work will be shown in La Couleur en fugue exhibition at Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris; and this autumn, an original work commissioned by the Fondation in dialogue with Frank Gehry’s architecture will be installed on-site.

Inaugurated in 2017, the Espace Louis Vuitton Beijing is located in the Central Business District of the Chinese capital. Its 800m² exhibition space is dedicated exclusively to contemporary art exhibitions.
Cindy Sherman undergoes a metamorphosis for each of her portraits: a cinema star, a historical figure, a clown, or even a man. Questioning the cult of celebrity and the modes of self-representation with a characteristic offbeat sense of humour, she sacrifices her own appearance to expose the generally accepted tyranny of an ideal image. This exhibition, part of the Fondation Louis Vuitton “Hors-les-murs” programme, pays tribute to a career that spans over five decades, staking its claim in both the 20th and 21st centuries, from her first series to the most recent photo portraits and tapestry, never shown before in China.

Inaugurated in 2019, the Espace Louis Vuitton Seoul is nestled on the fourth floor of the Maison Louis Vuitton Seoul, the façade of which was designed by celebrated Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry. A glass structure inspired by the traditional Korean dance Dongnae Hakchum forms the shelter of a contemporary art space, reflecting the sails of the Fondation Louis Vuitton building in Paris.
The Espace Louis Vuitton Seoul is honored to present the works of American artist Alex Katz. Known for his portraits of women and landscapes, Katz’s wife Ada has been the subject of more than 250 of his portraits. A feeling of tranquility and the representation of an idealized American way of life emerge by way of a meticulous, multi-step process. Observational oil sketches are followed by detailed pencil or charcoal drawings transferred to the canvas, which Katz paints in a single studio session. With their understated lines, his timeless portraits impress viewers with the idealized plenitude they exude.

The Espace Louis Vuitton Osaka welcomes contemporary art lovers at the fifth floor of the Maison Louis Vuitton Osaka Midosuji. Conceived by Japanese architect Jun Aoki, this emblematic building bears a remarkable façade inspired by a traditional Higaki-Kaisen cargo ship and its billowing sails, drawing on the city’s sea-faring history.
From February 23rd through June 25th, 2023, the Espace Louis Vuitton Osaka presents an exhibition dedicated to Alberto Giacometti as part of the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s “Hors-les-murs” program.
