Luis Vuitton brings together up to 200 artists in an exclusive exhibition celebrating the cultural impact of the brand. Works by PLAYLAB, Supreme and Nigo, among many others, will be on display.

 

A selection of artworks will be displayed in a space near Rodeo Drive, Los Angeles on the bicentenary of Louis Vuitton‘s birth. Up to two hundred participants are part of the project, for which they have been commissioned a metaphorical blank canvas measuring 50 x 50 x 100 cm (the same dimensions as the maison‘s original boot). All of them will be auctioned through Sotheby’s at the end of the year, with 100% of the proceeds going to charity.

“This project has always been about creativity, a true tribute to Louis’ ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit. We have the opportunity to see how a cross-section of talent has responded to the same brief, while taking a moment to appreciate the man himself,” said Faye McLeod, Visual Image Director for Louis Vuitton, in a statement.

The exhibition ‘200 Trunks, 200 Visionaries’ opens today and runs until 6 September.
