With the recent headlines that Virgil Abloh as the new creative director of Louis Vuitton, the fashion brand’s eponymous art space is also bringing a fresh splash of color to Paris in their latest exhibition, “In Tune With The World,” opening April 11. Expect a new selection of art from the foundation’s collection set in the famous Frank Gehry building. There are colorful pieces from Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, as well as an entire section devoted to kawaii (meaning “cute” in Japanese) inspired art, from wallpaper to animated films inspired by Manga. Also catch some classic pieces by Yves Klein, Kiki Smith and Matthew Barney. The show runs until August 27.
