This event is a new chapter in the development of close relations between the Louis Vuitton Foundation and the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts. A. S. Pushkin. The beginning of cooperation was the exhibition “Masterpieces of New Painting. Sergei Shchukin Collection ”, which was held with great success in the Louis Vuitton Foundation (Paris) in 2016-2017. As a response gesture in the summer of 2019, the Louis Vuitton Foundation collection will be presented at the Gallery of European and American Art of the 19th-20th centuries, including works by Alberto Giacometti, Yves Klein, Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke, Christian Boltansky, Andreas Gursky, as classics of the 20th century art and the artists of the younger generation, such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Banksy, Matthew Barney, Takasi Murakami, Pierre Yuig, Cheng Yang and others. Special attention at the exhibition will be given to the personality of Bernard Arno, the president of the LVMH group of companies and a passionate collector of modern art.
The exhibition of the Louis Vuitton Foundation collection will be held simultaneously with a large-scale exposition dedicated to the Schukin brothers, which will be located in the Main Museum Building. These two exhibitions of iconic collections - Sergei Ivanovich Schukin and Bernard Arno - will help Moscow viewers to trace the similarities and differences in the approaches to the formation of collections, demonstrate the evolution of approaches to collecting contemporary art at the beginning of the XX and XXI centuries. And at the same time, they will become clear evidence of the inseparable connection between different generations of collectors of modern art.
