As the third phase of its inaugural programme, Fondation Louis Vuitton presents an important

Mondrian, Malevich, Rothko, Delaunay, Léger, Picabia, Munch, Dix, Giacometti, Matisse, Kupka and
Severini.

A symposium dealing with diverse issues, shared by many global institutions, will be held on June 12
and 13 2015. It will cover themes such as: “What does it mean to collect art today?”, “Who is
currently making art history?”, “What impact does the art market have on this landscape?”, “What
makes a work iconic?”.
The exhibition Keys to a passion is curated by Suzanne Pagé and Béatrice Parent, in collaboration
with Isabelle Monod-Fontaine as scientific advisor.
