The Collection, A selection of Chinese works.
As one of the newest arrivals to the Paris art scene, the foundation Louis Vuitton is still carving its curatorial identity – they offer not just the visual arts, but musical recitals, and a whole array of artforms. This year, however, the focus centres on contemporary art from China. This is not exactly and exhibition per se, but a cherry-picked selection of their permanent collection. The show highlights works by Ai Weiwei, Zhang Huan, Yan Pei-Ming, Xu Zhen, and others. The show, which concludes with an Isaac Julien installation on Chinese culture, is a fresh opportunity to acquaint ourselves with the mainstream names in Chinese art today.
