Far from the centre of Paris, located in the 16th arrondissement, the Louis Vuitton Foundation is a cultural place that is not very easy to access but is really worth a visit. Its very modern architecture was designed by the famous architect Frank Gehry. We find the transparency of the glass material widely used in the construction of the building which brings brightness but also light wood and we have the impression to see a kind of boat.
Each year, two major temporary exhibitions are held at the Louis Vuitton Foundation, and there are two exhibitions that I particularly remember. First of all, I was impressed by the exhibition “Being modern: Le MoMA à Paris” in 2017, which included paintings usually exhibited at the MoMA in New York City. Then, this summer in 2019, I went to see the exhibition “The Courtauld Collection, the Party of Impressionism” and I was able to admire many paintings in the impressionist style of Manet, Monet, Degas, Cézanne, Van Gogh or Gaughin and others.
The exhibitions that take place at the Louis Vuitton Foundation are never disappointing. After having visited, I advise you to go up to the top floor of the foundation on the terrace from where you can admire Paris from above, see the Eiffel Tower and the business district of La Défense.
