The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and Fondation Louis Vuitton announce the first comprehensive exhibition in France to present MoMA’s unparalleled collection: Etre moderne: Le MoMA à Paris, on view at Fondation Louis Vuitton from October 11, 2017, through March 5, 2018. An integrated, cross-disciplinary selection of 200 works, drawn from all six of the Museum’s curatorial departments and reflecting the history of the institution and its collecting, will fill the entirety of the Fondation’s Frank Gehry–designed building. Curated jointly by the two institutions, the display brings together paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, films, media works, performances, and architecture and design objects, tracing the evolution and multifaceted scope of MoMA’s collection. The exhibition was conceived in relation to the architecture and interior spaces of the Fondation Louis Vuitton building, allowing a compelling historical narrative across its four floors.

Une belle expo, très longue - comme souvent à la Fondation Louis Vuitton - qui présentent de belles oeuvres. J'ai particulièrement aimé à la fin l'installation musicale qui est incroyable et qui a elle seule vaut le détour !

As is often the case at FLV the exhibition is huge so pace yourself. But as is also often the case it's excellent!! Big works is chronological order - from MoMA's founding in rented space in the Heckscher Building in NYC to today's globally-recognized institution - which were fairly easy to navigate even with the crowd and supported by helpful text panels for each gallery.
