Since 2006, LVMH has championed the nonprofit Louis Vuitton Fondation, with it's a contemporary-designed art museum and cultural center established in Paris. But as the coronavirus requires the world to stay home, la Fondation Louis Vuitton has been closed with all events canceled. Though never undervaluing the importance of arts and culture, the Fondation will now host 3 digital events every week.

"During these exceptional circumstances, the Fondation continues to share content with its public and community allowing them to relive or discover certain exhibitions, concerts, masterclasses and events that it has offered since its 2014 opening," reads the Fondation's announcement.

The events for this week are all videos located on the Fondation's Facebook page or YouTube channel, with exclusive content being published on it's Instagram.

On Wednesday the 25th, an 18-minute video of the 2018 "In Tune with the World" exhibition will show multi-media works from artists of varying origin and style. Friday the 27th brings us piano prodigy and phenomenon Lang Lang for an hour-long concert, where the pianist played Mozart, Chopin, and Tchaïkovski in 2014. For Sunday's event, viewers can watch the 2014 documentary Violoncelles, vibrez! that followed Gautier Capuçon and his instruction of 6 young cellists.
