Fondation Louis Vuitton almost ready for grand opening
The Fondation Louis Vuitton takes its name from the biggest and most visible brand within Mr Arnault’s LVMH luxury-goods group, the world’s largest by revenue.
Paris’s brand-new Fondation Louis Vuitton is almost ready for its public debut. Designed by FRANK GEHRY, the striking glass building has been designed for the exploration of “artistic creation in all its forms.”
Located at the Jardin d’Acclimatation in the city’s picturesque Bois de Boulogne area, the building will house a permanent collection made up of works belonging to the collection of Bernard Arnault, CEO of LVMH.

Set to open to the public at the end of this month with an “Inaugural Weekend Event,” the Fondation will host an artistic program to unfold in three stages between October 2014 and July 2015, with each stage including a temporary exhibition and a presentation of the collection.
The first stage will run through December 2014, featuring an exhibition on the architecture of Frank Gehry for the Fondation Louis Vuitton and the presentation of certain works from the permanent collection, in addition to musical events from Lang Lang and Kraftwerk.
The Fondation Louis Vuitton will open to the public on October 27 following an Inaugural Weekend from Friday, October 24 to Sunday, October 26. Free tickets for the inaugural weekend are available upon reservation.
