The Museum of Modern Art and Fondation Louis Vuitton have joined together to present the Etre Moderne: Le MoMA à Paris exhibition from 11 October, 2017 to 5 March, 2018

Fondation Louis Vuitton’s Frank Gehry–designed building will house a selection of 200 works tracing MoMA’s rich history of collecting, and will feature paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, films, media works, performances, architecture and design objects, that trace the evolution and multifaceted scope of MoMA’s collection. The exhibition was inspired by the architecture and interior spaces of the four level Fondation Louis Vuitton building.
