A Sculpture of Kusama in Paris


Louis Vuitton has collaborated with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama to create two installations in their stores in Paris.

A monumental sculpture of Kusama has been erected on the Champs-Elysées store, leaning over to paint polka dots on the building, and an animatronic Kusama stands in front of the Place Vendôme store, painting dots on the façade.

The collaboration has been praised by many and has excited fans, but it has also raised questions about the ethics of the project, such as whether it is a performative publicity stunt or if it has gone too far in exploiting Kusama’s art.
