Louis Vuitton launches in Paris exhibition dedicated to the art of writing

Preceding the opening in December in Paris of its very first store dedicated to writing instruments and stationery, Louis Vuitton launches this Thursday (October 18) in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, in the heart of Paris’ historic artistic quarter, a temporary exhibition space at 170 Boulevard Saint-Germain dedicated to the world of writing via a selection of books and artworks.

Entitled Writing is a journey, and open to the public, the Louis Vuitton exhibition runs through December 31 and is also to host weekly conversations with such cultural figures as French singer and actress Juliette Gréco and artist Marie-Ange Guilleminot. Visitors can leaf through a selection of books, which can be purchased at La Hune nearby, or gaze at works by such artists as Ed Ruscha and Claude Closky that have as their theme either traveling or writing.
