Visitors can now have an ephemeral viewing experience through Louis Vuitton's travelling exhibition at Singapore that features 200 imaginative trunks realised by 200 visionaries

The 200 Trunks 200 Visionaries exhibition is both a tribute to Louis Vuitton's innovative legacy and a stage for talent to flourish.

It is an experience like no other as it features talents and friends of the house who are champions of arts and culture, the sciences, sports, global causes, and more. Among the recognisable names are streetwear brand Supreme, Chinese visual artist Liu Wei, K-pop group BTS, Fornasetti, and American architect Peter Marino.

These talents are provided with a metaphorical blank canvas measuring 50 by 50 by 100 centimetres, approximately similar to the original trunk that Vuitton conceived in the 1850s.

They transformed the canvas into vessels that depict dreams and desires, abstract concepts, and artistic expressions.

"This project has always been about creativity," says Faye Mcleod, Louis Vuitton's Visual Image Director. "A real tribute to Louis's ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit. We get to see how such a cross-section of talents answered the same brief while also taking a moment to appreciate the man himself."

Guests can enter the exhibition at Marina Bay, Singapore, for free. The experience begins in a briefing room panelled with LED screens. The creations made by several brilliant visionaries and friends, who were invited to personalise the emblematic trunk, are presented up close.

The first main space is a warehouse, where original art pieces are shown with screen-panelled 'magic trunks' and a robot trunk. The physical trunks, however, are stacked upon their assigned shipping crates.

Visitors will be entering what appears to be an open dreamscape panorama before the circuit ends with two rooms: an interactive space featuring trunks by BTS and an audio speakeasy featuring a functioning 200-track jukebox trunk by Benji B, a British DJ and producer.

Lastly, visitors can watch video interviews and browse books in the lifestyle area before leaving.
