Louis Vuitton strikes art gold once again! Having had previous collaborations with world renowned artists such as Stephen Sprouse, Takashi Murakami and Richard Prince, the maison furthers their ties in the contemporary art world by hosting an art talk between artist Sarah Lucas and Whitechapel Gallery director, Iwona Blazwick. The Maison currently features a display of Sarah Lucas’ series ‘Self Portraits 1990-1998’. These twelve iconic works are available to purchase in the New Bond Street Bookstore, beautifully presented in a custom made box exclusive to Louis Vuitton.

Sarah Lucas





The talk was to explicate Lucas’ exhibition, “Situation” held at the Whitechapel Gallery. This is Sarah Lucas’ first major solo exhibition in London. Bringing together over two decades of sculpture, installation and photography, ‘Situation’ explores Lucas’s remarkable career and assesses the vital role she plays in British art. The talk brought out some of the art worlds most influential to Vuitton’s New Bond Street Maison. Guests included Tim Noble and Sue Webster, Harriet Verney, Pheobe Collings-James, Kim Hersov, Bay Garnett, Sadie Coles, Iwona Blazwick, Annie Morris and Idris Khan.
