For its first 2016 exhibition, the Espace culturel Louis Vuitton München is pleased to present Les Approches showcasing the artistic positions of the Belgian-born experimental filmmaker Chantal Akerman and the French visual artist Annette Messager.
Programmed and produced under the artistic direction of the Fondation Louis Vuitton, the exhibition is part of the Fondation’s “Hors-les-murs” project, introducing previously unseen holdings of its collection at the Espaces culturels Louis Vuitton in Munich, Venice, Beijing, and Tokyo, thus carrying out its intent to realize international initiatives and make them accessible to a broad public.
Les Approches examines existential and autobiographical elements that form a common thread in the artists’ oeuvres, including their mutual quest to both improve representations of women and the position of female artists in the broader critical context of the visual arts since the 1970s.
Les Approches is the first of two exhibitions scheduled to take place at the Espace culturel Louis Vuitton München in 2016 to celebrate female artistic ingenuity.
