Geography, exploration and cultural exchange will come to the fore in the coming months as four new exhibitions are set to open at Louvre Abu Dhabi.
Japanese culture and its links to French decorative arts will be explored from 6th September with the upcoming Japanese Connections: The Birth of Modern Décor exhibition, running until 24th November.
The museum will then look to the archaeological and cultural heritage of the Arabian Peninsula from 8th November, followed by an exhibition showcasing masterpieces from the Dutch golden age, which includes paintings from Rembrandt and his contemporaries.
The season will culminate in April with Opening the Album of the World, which traces early methods of photography around the globe.
Commenting on the upcoming season of art, HE Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, chairman of the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, noted the museum’s continuing ethos to unite different cultures through art: “Louvre Abu Dhabi’s new season, A World of Exchanges, will offer visitors an opportunity to engage with a diverse programme and new conversations about different civilisations and their connecting points.
“Louvre Abu Dhabi is a place where all cultures can find something that reminds them of home, showcasing the wide range of similarities that unite us, to be seen, experienced and enjoyed by all.”
