1. Paris: Fondation Louis Vuitton Ticket for Mark Rothko show
Designed by architect Frank Gehry, the Fondation Louis Vuitton building is a work of art in itself. Marvel at the structure from the outside before entering the museum with your ticket. Explore the venue’s 11 galleries, taking in both the permanent and temporary exhibitions. Spend as much time as you like admiring the different exhibitions or venture a little further to learn about the many services offered by the Fondation. With a documentation center containing thousands of printable articles, a bookshop, and a Michelin-starred restaurant, you’re sure to find something that catches your eye. Immerse yourself in the Mark Rothko (1903-1970) retrospective, a rare treat not seen in France since its 1999 showcase at the Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris. Witness a collection of around 115 pieces, curated from esteemed places like the National Gallery of Art in Washington, the Tate Gallery in London, and the Phillips Collection in Washington, as well as revered private collections, notably Rothko's own family. Journey through the Foundation's spaces, tracing Rothko's evolution from his early figurative works to his iconic abstract masterpieces. Contemplate Rothko's profound words: "I became a painter because I wanted to elevate painting to be as poignant as music and poetry." This exhibition is a testament to that vision.
