Louis Vuitton: 200 Trunks 200 Visionaries Exhibition On Rodeo Drive

The global journey of 200 Trunks 200 Visionaries:
The Exhibition touches down on Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles beginning July 28th, 2022 to celebrate Louis Vuitton’s bicentennial birthday. Nearly a year after the milestone date of August 4th, 2021, the exhibition offers a stage for the visionaries’ trunks to be viewed as an ongoing tribute to Louis’s innovative legacy. The initiative showcases a mosaic of talents and friends of the House – spanning arts and culture, the sciences, sports, global causes and more – who were invited to personalize the emblematic trunk. Among the familiar names: Supreme, Peter Marino, Lego, Alex Israel, Nigo, and Fornasetti. A metaphorical blank canvas measuring 50 x 50 x 100 centimeters, approximately the dimensions of the original trunk that Louis conceived in the 1850s, yielded 200 extraordinary transformations: vessels transmitting dreams and desires, abstract concepts, and artistic expressions.

In Los Angeles, the building’s white façade makes an immediate impression owing to colorful stripes that fill the windows and echo an early Louis Vuitton trunk motif. Upon entering, visitors will encounter a Robot configuration of trunks before making their way to the Briefing Room where a Magic Box – a trunk paneled in digital screens – bridges the Maison’s past and future. The first of two main spaces appears as a warehouse-inspired setting. In a staggered yet vaguely sculptural arrangement, the original trunks are juxtaposed with additional screen-paneled Magic Boxes, each stacked atop the crates that have been used for transport from France and boast an accumulation of shipping labels. Next comes an immersive room from the Brooklyn Balloon Company by Robert Moy, an artist whose colorful epoxy and painted balloon trunk is now entirely surrounded by even more balloons. After heading up a set of striped stairs complemented by 2D artworks, visitors arrive at the Dreamscape, where the remaining trunks are displayed within
a vivid scenography.

The exhibition runs from July 29th through September 6th, 2022 at 468 North Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210/ Open Hours are from Monday – Saturday: 10 am – 8 pm and Sunday: 11 am – 8 pm. The exhibition is free of charge but reservations are welcomed HERE
