The Petite Galerie at the Louvre is dedicated to art and culture education. At the moment, it offers an invitation to discover “The Body in Movement. Dance and the Museum”. Dance, then, is the guest in an exhibition co-curated by choreographer Benjamin Millepied and Jean-Luc Martinez, president-director of the Musée du Louvre. Comprising some 70 artworks ranging from antiquity to the early 20th century — lent notably by the Musée Rodin, the Musée d’Orsay, and the Centre Pompidou — this show looks at the challenges facing artists in their representation of movement, and the solutions they have come up with.
