After several tributes to the late designer Virgil Abloh, the ‘Coming of Age’ exhibition, organized by the Louis Vuitton label, has been on view since April 13 at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, on Avenue du Mahatma Gandhi. This is a private museum in Paris that contains the art collection of Bernard Arnault, founder and chairman of conglomerate LVMH.
The ‘Coming of Age’ exhibition was first shown at the Little Big Man Gallery in Los Angeles in 2019 and has also been seen in Paris, Beijing, Milan, New York City, Munich, Tokyo and Seoul. The exhibition coincided with Abloh’s first spring 2019 campaign for Vuitton, in which he explored the theme of ‘youth’ through the works of artists such as Ed Templeton and Sandy Kim.
The exhibition in its original form gave students, artists and local communities access to a do-it-yourself “copy center” where they could create their own magazines featuring their favorite artworks. The current two-week exhibition, which can be visited from 13 to 27 April, has been expanded and redesigned. Since Abloh liked to roll up their sleeves, this exhibition is bursting with activities, where physical and digital participation come together. In this way, visitors become participants and Virgil Abloh’s mission to democratize the dream that Louis Vuitton embodies is emphasized.
Tickets can be reserved via the Fondation Louis Vuitton website. A visit is free.
