Louis Vuitton will be presenting its traveling exhibition “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton” at the Shanghai Exhibition Center from November 16, 2018 through February 1, 2019.
“Curated by Olivier Saillard, the exhibition retraces the adventure of the House of Louis Vuitton from 1854 to the present,” according to the brand. “A story told through the portraits of its founders, as well as those who today are inventing the Louis Vuitton of tomorrow. This historic journey, designed by Robert Carsen, is divided into fifteen chapters; punctuated by objects commemorating the links between Louis Vuitton and China.”
At this free exhibition, you can expect to see archival Louis Vuitton fashions, accessories, and historical pieces.
“The tour opens with the most symbolic object of the House: the trunk, a model fashioned with contemporary flair, embodying the iconic hallmarks and bold spirit of Louis Vuitton,” the brand explained. “The exhibition features objects and documents from the Louis Vuitton heritage archives, as well as unique articles on loan from the Palais Galliera, Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris; Château de Versailles, long term loan from the Musée Carnavalet, Paris; as well as artworks signed by Yan Pei Ming and He An. The exhibition concludes with a display devoted to the savoir-faire of the artisans in the Louis Vuitton workshops.”
