Jacobs, who will be in Hong Kong for the opening, will welcome a number of visiting artists, including Gilbert Proesch, George Passmore, Prince and Murakami.
At the urging of Suzanne Pagé, the foundation’s artistic director, the final part of the exhibition is dedicated to seven young Hong Kong artists. Included are Lee Kit, well-known for celebrating the mundane in such creations as hand-painted tablecloths, and Doris Wong, whose provocative works often involve startling interaction with viewers.
Two of the Hong Kong artists are also on show at the Gallery in Louis Vuitton’s Canton Road Maison. Debains said this is not directly linked to the exhibition, but does tie in well. Louis Vuitton stores in Hong Kong will dedicate window displays to the event.
