On May 22nd “Louis Vuitton: A Passion for Creation” will open its doors at the Hong Kong Museum of Art. To celebrate the event, the facade of the museum has been wrapped with the “After Dark” series by artist Richard Prince, who has already worked with Louis Vuitton on several other projects. Facing the Victoria Harbour of Hong Kong, this is one of the very first public art installations in Hong Kong.
The “After Dark” series consists of blown-up novels that Richard Prince has gathered. The illustrate protagonists’ stories of “After Dark” or after midnight in different cities around the world. Each second city is Hong Kong. Certainly an impressive and eye catching piece, that should result in a lot of people passing by the Louis Vuitton exhibition, which is open until August 9th.
