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 honoured to present Class War, Militant, Gateway (1986) by Gilbert & George for the first time in Japan. A manifesto for a modern epic poem, this iconic triptych illustrates the individual’s adventure, from affiliation with a community to the emergence of a personal conscience and self-affirmation. This work, which belongs to the Collection, is the first monumental piece of the artists’ duet oeuvre. It is presented within the framework of the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s ongoing “Hors-les-murs” programme.

Inaugurated in 2014, the Espace Louis Vuitton München contributes to the broader discourse of contemporary art by presenting new positions and curatorial encounters. It encourages the exchange between local and international artistic scenes, art professionals, collectors and the public audience.
From March 4th through August 14th, 2022, the Espace Louis Vuitton Munich presents “Two Burlesques”, an exhibition dedicated to British artist Ed Atkins, pursuing the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s mission of showcasing holdings from the Collection to an international audience through the “Hors-les-murs” programme.
British artist Ed Atkins defines himself as a visual artist, a writer, a poet, a screenwriter and a musician. The use of digital images and their impact on our daily experience are at the core of his video installations, featuring 3D characters that are “both ridiculously alive and completely dead.” Being the main character of his own videos, he gives performance a central role. In the framework of the Hors-les-murs programme of the Fondation Louis Vuitton, Atkins specifically revisits the display of two of his works from the Collection: Us Dead Talk Love (2012), a meditation on love and death in the form of an autobiographical confession between two severed heads, to the sound of the musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street; and Even Pricks (2013) which shares a series of reflections on depression in an immersive, labyrinthine, yet jubilatory experience.

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. Alongside, Louis Vuitton invites to an unprecedented film programming in the heart of the legendary Spazio Etoile store in Rome.
As part of the 17th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, the Fondation Louis Vuitton is pleased to present Charlotte Perriand and I at Espace Louis Vuitton Venezia, an exclusive show confronting the foundational works of Charlotte Perriand and Frank Gehry. Over the past century, developments in technology have increased the frequency with which we have reimagined the home. Industrial and digital technologies evolutions, together with changing social values, enabled architects to invent new solutions for the way we live. Today, amidst an ecological crisis of our own making, we are attempting to house an unprecedented global population within boundaries that are in flux. The work of Perriand and Gehry are presented here as both historical references and as viable solutions for these issues. Two of the projects, precursors to current innovations in independent energy collection and consumption, are exhibited for the first time – Perriand’s Tritrianon project (1937) and Gehry’s Power Pack project (1969).
Parallel to the exhibition, the Spazio Etoile in Rome shows a unique film programming showcasing all the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s activities since its opening in 2014.
