Grand MoMA

VOGUE Hommes International (English) - - DIARY -

A dou­ble whammy. Hav­ing blithely ex­ceeded one mil­lion vis­i­tors at its ex­hi­bi­tion of the Shchukin Col­lec­tion ( which was ad­mit­tedly as­tound­ing ) the Fon­da­tion Louis Vuitton is now pre­par­ing a new artis­tic block­buster. Be­ing Mod­ern will cover a se­lec­tion of 200 works from the MoMA col­lec­tions in New York. Founded in 1929, New York’s Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art was one of the first in­sti­tu­tions to be de­voted ex­clu­sively to con­tem­po­rary art and to cap­i­talise on the avant–garde. Over the years, the MoMA has built up one of the largest col­lec­tions of art­works in the world, along­side the Pom­pi­dou Cen­tre in Paris and the Tate in Lon­don. The ex­hi­bi­tion, fea­tur­ing leg­endary names such Ed­ward Hop­per, Walker Evans, Pablo Pi­casso, Jack­son Pol­lock, Andy Warhol, Diane Ar­bus, Jasper Johns and Willem

de Koon­ing is poised to go down in his­tory. FON­DA­TION LOUIS–VUITTON ( Paris ), from 11 Oc­to­ber 2017 to 5 March 2018
