Time Out says

Following the example of Champs-Elysées Maison in Paris, Louis Vuitton has transformed the seventh floor of its Jun Aoki-designed Omotesando store into an art gallery in 2011. The French culture and art organisation Fondation Louis Vuitton curates contemporary works of art for its Hors-les-murs programme, which is hosted at this Tokyo venue as well as in other international locations including Munich, Venice and Beijing. Since opening, Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo has held solo exhibitions by Jesus Rafael Soto and Christian Boltanski, as well as group shows featuring work by artists from Finland, India and Japan.

What’s on

Rashid Johnson – Plateaus

Now showing at Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo is this magnificent installation by Chicago-born Rashid Johnson, a photographer and sculptor who is often identified as part of the post-Black movement. From ceramic pots to shea butter and walkie-talkies to African-American history books, the variety of materials Johnson uses in his ‘Plateaus’ (2014) installation is a reflection of Johnson's multifaceted upbringing that made him the artist that he is today.  According to Johnson, the pyramid-like framework he uses as the foundation of this piece is not intended to symbolise a hierarchy, but rather a unique synthesis of things he draws inspiration from.
