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.
Etre moderne will feature masterworks by artists including Max Beckmann, Alexander Calder, Paul Cézanne, Marcel Duchamp, Walker Evans, Jasper Johns, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Gustav Klimt, Yayoi Kusama, René Magritte, Pablo Picasso, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Yvonne Rainer, Frank Stella, and Paul Signac.
A selection of rarely shown documentary material from MoMA’s archives will also screen in the galleries, tracing the history of the Museum and contextualizing the works.
Etre moderne: Le MoMA à Paris will take place at Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris from October 11, 2017, through March 5, 2018.
