Louis Vuitton 'Writing is a Journey'
Louis Vuitton has taken over the old La Hune site on the corner of Boulevard St Germain and Rue St Benoît (La Hune in the meantime is now happily installed on the Place St Germain des Prés). If rumour has it that Vuitton will be physically linking this site to their Left Bank fashion HQ ’round the corner, for the time being they’re dedicating it to elevated, arty installations. Running through to the end of the year, ‘Writing is a Journey’ hijacks the dense history of St Germain and La Hune and attempts to provide a “unique and intimate journey to the heart of writing” via a framed presentation of Ed Ruscha’s 2009 ‘artist book’ of Kerouac’s On the Road, plus works from French artists Claude Closky, Marie-Ange Guilleminot and Jean-Jacques Lebel. You’ll also find a curated selection of books for your contemplation by who else La Hune, and a weekly program of by-reservation conversations around those who “wrote” St Germain.
Until 31 Dec. Noon-8pm. Closed Sun.
170 bd Saint-Germain, 6th. www.louisvuitton.com/
