Art fans are psyched! Until Monday March 5th, 2018, “Being Modern: MoMA in Paris” is the newest can’t-miss exhibition at the Foundation Louis Vuitton in Paris for the next six months.

After two major exhibitions, The Keys of A Passion & Icons of Modern Art, the futuristic museum nested in the Bois de Boulogne hosts this time 200 masterpieces from the the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) in New York. More than just a museum, the MoMa has been a collector since its creation in 1929.

From Cezanne to Pollock and Kurita

Discover masterworks by famous artists including Max Beckmann, Alexander Calder, Paul Cézanne, Marcel, Duchamp, Walker Evans, Jasper Johns, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Gustav Klimt, Yayoi Kusama, René Magritte, Pablo Picasso, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Yvonne Rainer, Frank Stella, and Paul Signac.

Exhibition “Being Modern: MoMA in Paris” represents the wide range of artworks that MoMA has acquired over the decades, ranging from the early defining movements of the modern art period to Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism, Pop art and digital works of art.

The MoMa through the years

The exhibition opens with MoMA’s first decade, including such iconic works as Edward Hopper’s House by the Railroad (acquired in 1930) or Paul Cézanne’s The Bather (acquired in 1934) and then goes to Minimalism and Pop art. Emerging as two major new art forms in the 1960s, these movements are seen through a dialogue between painting, architecture, sculpture, and photography.

The final section, located on the top floor of the building, focuses on contemporary works from around the world, most of which were acquired by MoMA in the last two years.
