The exhibition called “Key’s of a passion” follows a four theme axis representing four movements found in the Foundation Louis Vuiton’s collection. Each piece of art was selected for its passionate identity and its typical character in order to remind us that art changes over time while being immortal.

Subjective expressionism forms the exhibition’s first axis. Paintings of Edvard Munch, Alberto Giacometti, Kazimir Malévitch or Otto Dix are exposed. This section leads visitors to think about death, fears and loneliness.
