This spring, the Fondation Louis Vuitton will showcase its permanent collection of works in its most expansive exhibition since opening in 2014. “Au Diapason du Monde” (which translates to “In Tune with the World”) opens April 11th, 2018, and will exhibit a selection of modern and contemporary artists including Takashi Murakami, Matthew Barney, Dan Flavin and TOILETPAPER’s Maurizio Cattelan.

In a second set of exhibitions (October 3rd, 2018 to January 14th, 2019), the Fondation will highlight the works of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Egon Schiele, two of history’s most significant artists. Curator Dieter Bucchard aims to draw parallels between the existential nature of Basquiat and Schiele’s work with the simultaneous exhibition of both shows.
