To celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of the Queen, Louis Vuitton is showcasing an exclusive art exhibition at the brand’s New Bond Street Maison. The art exhibition is being conducted in collaboration with German visual artist, Hans-Peter Feldmann.
Feldmann is known for his unique approach to art-making – collecting, ordering and re-presenting amateur snapshots, print photographic reproductions, toys and trivial works of art. He is one of the leading figures in the conceptual art movement and is also a practitioner in the artist book and multiple formats.
The Queen has often been the subject of many of his works in the past. The present exhibition is a mixture of film and photographic installations that make up the display at the exhibition hall.
Feldmann is known as an artist with a wit and sense of humour, according to Vogue UK and the magazine also reported on a recent exhibition, at the Serpentine Gallery, which featured a portrait of the Queen with a red nose. The artist has also created one-off, special mementoes for the public to take away after visiting the store.
The Maison will also be hosting two piano days on 4 June and 5 June, during which a selection of pianists will play works by legendary composers including Beethoven, Debussy, Schubert and Brahms.
