An exhibition called “Fondation Louis Vuitton Building in Paris by Frank Gehry” was unveiled here Thursday to coincide with the opening of the Venice Architecture Biennale. An exhibition of scale models created by the Gehry Partners Studio that describe the creative and technical process leading to the shiplike structure of the Fondation is being presented at the Vuitton space here, displaying a comprehensive selection of works, sketches and models. In another link with the Fondation — which is showing Daniel Buren’s “Observatory of Light,” an installation of translucent colored gels and white stripes on the Paris building’s glass panels reminiscent of sails — the Venice Espace is displaying a work by the artist. Buren’s colorful and graphic work appears on the glass roof of the Louis Vuitton boutique, which houses the Espace. The latter has doubled its space to 2,160 square feet.

The exhibition also signals “a significant change as the Espace will now be run by the Fondation,” said Jean Paul Claverie, adviser to LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton chairman and chief executive officer Bernard Arnault “It’s logical — the Fondation has its own collection, its own program and creates a place for the public to meet contemporary artists.”
