As the third phase of its inaugural program, Fondation Louis Vuitton presents an important exhibition titled “Les Clefs d’une Passion.” The show offers a selection of masterpieces that have been the key of the development of modernity and have contributed to change the course of the history of 20th century art, from Mondrian and Malevich to Rothko, Delaunay to Léger and Picabia, Munch to Dix and Giacometti, Matisse to Kupka and Severini.
In keeping with what was announced, Les Clefs d’une Passion expresses the intention of Fondation Louis Vuitton to collaborate with the most important French and international museums, including: The State Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg; Tate Modern, London; MoMA, New York; The Munch Museum, Oslo; Guggenheim, New York; Gemeentemuseum, The Hague; The Pushkin Museum, Saint Petersburg; The Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo; The State Russian Museum, Saint Petersburg; MNAM-Centre Pompidou, Paris; Kunsthaus, Zürich; MOCA, Los Angeles.
A symposium on various themes will be held on 12 and 13 June 2015. The focus will be on topics of interest for many institutions: “What does collecting mean today?”, “Who are the protagonists of art history today?”, “What is the impact of the art market in this scenario?”, and “What makes a work iconic?”
The exhibition Les Clefs d’une Passion is curated by Suzanne Pagé and Béatrice Parent, with scientific consulting by Isabelle Monod-Fontaine.
