Louvre Abu Dhabi
The first universal museum in the Arab world.
Contacts & Details
Louvre Abu Dhabi is planned as the first universal museum in the Arab world. Born of an agreement between the governments of Abu Dhabi and France, the Louvre Abu Dhabi will display art, manuscripts and objects of historical, cultural and sociological significance. Spanning millennia, the items on display will originate from societies and cultures all over the world, but universal themes and common influences will be highlighted to illustrate similarities arising from shared human experience transcending geography, nationality and history.
Louvre Abu Dhabi: Talking Art Series is a public platform for discovering a world of global ideas and for fostering an intercultural dialogue. The panels in the upcoming series will examine critical questions of art history through artworks that are part of Louvre Abu Dhabi’s growing permanent collection.
