Louis Vuitton’s sixth cultural space is now open in Venice, joining locations in Tokyo, Paris, Hong Kong, Taipei, and Singapore. Located on the top floor of a gorgeous, newly opened store just a stone’s throw from St. Mark’s Square that features the full collections for both men and women, this unique space is dedicated to exploring the connections between the rich history of Venice and the contemporary art world. Rotating exhibitions will feature a classic piece alongside a modern artist’s interpretations, for a beautiful juxtaposition of old and new. The first exhibition, entitled Where Should Othello Go? presents Pompeo Molmenti‘s 1866 painting, “The Death of Othello” alongside an audio-visual installation from modern day artist Tony Oursler called “Strawberry-Ecstasy-Green.” Quite the contrast.—Ashley Churchill
