The renowned Louis Vuitton “200 TRUNKS, 200 VISIONARIES: THE EXHIBITION” global exhibition that showcases the imaginative trunks created by 200 visionaries heads from Los Angeles to New York. The fourth and final stop of the “200 TRUNKS, 200 VISIONARIES: THE EXHIBITION” international tour will take place at the landmark Barneys New York building.
The LOUIS 200 project invited a mosaic of talents and friends spanning arts and culture, the sciences, sports, global causes, and more to personalize a metaphorical blank canvas measuring approximately the same dimensions as the original trunk that Louis conceived in the 1850s. Among the 200 extraordinary transformations, talents including Willo Perron, Francesca Sorrenti, Refik Anadol, and Francky Zapata were exclusively showcased in NY.
Initially conceived to celebrate Louis Vuitton’s bicentennial birthday, this ambitious homage heads onward from Singapore, welcoming a new wave of visitors to experience an ephemeral presentation space and discover the creations up close. From its debut in Asnières at the Louis Vuitton family house then onward to Singapore and Los Angeles, this fourth destination is enhanced with several new spaces, welcoming visitors with an inspiring experience.
Visitors are invited to discover the exhibition at the Barneys New York building located at 660 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10065. The exhibition is free from Monday through Sunday 10am – 8pm and open till December 31st, 2022.*
At the end of the immersive circuit, visitors can discover The Workshop, a versatile space that will host cultural, educational, and artistic activities on an ongoing basis. Additionally, Louis Vuitton has opened FREDS x LOUIS in conjunction with the exhibition, reviving Barneys’ iconic restaurant Freds for a limited time.
