The Fondation Louis Vuitton, located in the Bois de Boulogne, presents a landmark exhibition until 5 March 2018. Being Modern: MoMA in Paris showcases a selection of 200 masterpieces from the remarkable collection of the Museum of Modern Art, NY. For those unable to travel to NY any time soon, it’s a real chance to see excerpts from the fantastic collection.

The show covers all of six MoMA’s departments, reflecting on the history of the institution and its collecting strategy. The show brings together paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, films, media works, performances (including fantastic Yvonne Rainer material) as well as architecture and design objects (the OMA, Rem Koolhaas’ section is great) tracing the evolution and scope of the museum’s collection.

Etre Moderne showcases major works by artists including Max Beckmann, Alexander Calder, Marcel Duchamp, Walker Evans, Jasper Johns, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Gustav Klimt, Yayoi Kusama, Pablo Picacsso, Frida Kahlo, Kerry James Marshall, Bruce Nauman, Robert Smithson, Frank Stella and many more.
