Continuing their quest to be forever and always the fashion label associated with high art, Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs fave Richard Prince are at it again in Hong Kong, where Prince has wrapped the Hong Kong Museum of Art with enlarged replicas of pulp fiction novel covers. This is all to draw attention to the featured exhibit "Louis Vuitton: A Passion for Creation" that will be displayed inside the museum from May 22nd to August 9th as part of HK's annual French May Arts Festival. Expect to see pieces from the permanent collection of the Fondation Louis Vuitton pour la Creation as well as featured works by Jeff Koons, Bertrand Lavier and, naturally, Stephen Sprouse. There's going to be a big fancy opening ceremony with all the LV all-stars there, including Marc Jacobs, Princ, Takashi Murakami, Frank Gehry and LVMH Moet Hennessy chariman Bernard Arnault all in attendance. Kanye West will probably show up too.
