Since March 23, as a reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic, Fondation Louis Vuitton is offering access to relive and discover a selection of exhibitions, concerts, masterclasses and events from the past.
Each week the Fondation’s site will feature three digital events: on Wednesdays, a visit to an exhibition with commentary by the curators; on Fridays, a concert held in the auditorium; and on Sundays, a concert by the laureates of the Classe d’Excellence de Violoncelle led by Gautier Capuçon.
This week you can expect the “The Collection of the Fondation. A Vision for Painting” on Wednesday at 6 pm. The exhibition was originally shown from February 20—August 26, 2019. It gathered 70 works from the collection, including the work of 23 international artists from the 1960s to the present day, all focused on painting.
On Friday at 8:30 pm there will be a recital with Boris Berezovsky on the piano and Henri Demarquette on the cello. The recital was originally performed on April 11, 2015. Berezovsky performed Franz Liszt’s “the twelve Transcendental Etudes,” and Demarquette performed a Kuzma Bodrov and Claude Debussy‘s cello and piano sonata.
On Sunday at 5:30 pm, there will be the viewing of the laureates of the Classe d’Excellence de Violoncelle’s final concert in 2015. The 2014-2015 season happened to be the first at Fondation Louis Vuitton. The final concert celebrates the end of classes and has director Gautier Capuçon come on stage with his six laureates.
