A whole new season of exhibitions and events are set to launch at the Louvre Abu Dhabi in September and it's lookiung to be something special.
Titled Changing Societies, the programme from September till 2020 includes four new interesting international exhibitions. The first new collection to arrive at the museum in Saadiyat Island will take spectators back to 1920's Paris with the Rendezvous in Paris exhibition featuring for the first time in the Gulf with more than 80 masterpieces by Picasso, Chagnall and Modigliani, Giorgio De Chirico and Sonia Delaunay from 18 September to 7 December 2019.
If luxurious and fancy things is more your thing, you can’t miss out on the 10,000 Years of Luxury collection featuring 350 exceptionally crafted and opulently ornate objects from the fields of jewellery, art, fashion, design and furniture from 30 October 2019 to 15 February 2020.
In the spring of 2020, the first new exhibition of the year will bring light to the stories of chivalrous heroes and warriors from across the world. Entitled Furusiyya: The Art of Chivalry between East and West, the exhibition reminisces the meeting of two similar concepts elaborated by rivals, the Islamic East and the largely Christian West in a show about stories of honour, courtly love and war.
Film geeks can look upto a crossover of the 20th century: art and cinema. Charlie Chaplin: When Art Met Cinema looks at the blending of Chaplin films and contemporary art movements.
Luckily for those with kids, the museum also has exhibitions that cater to the little peeps. A costume exhibition launches in September that will allow kids to renact the avant-garde period.
Manuel Rabaté, director of Louvre Abu Dhabi, was not exaggerating when he stated that, “This upcoming season represents our boldest and most extensive programme to date ... Supported by our incredible network of international partners, we’re able to bring exhibitions of a quality and scale unparalleled in the region.’’
