Louvre Abu Dhabi Opening of “Birth of a Museum”

The Louvre Abu Dhabi “Birth of a Museum” temporary exhibition at Manarat Al Saadiyat, was the first large-scale exhibition of the Louvre Abu Dhabi in the Middle East. It was on display from April to August 2014.

The exhibition featured a selection of one hundred and thirty works, most of them never before seen. Its concept is based on the major artistic and aesthetic themes which reveal the principles at the core of the Louvre Abu Dhabi's identity: universalism and the artistic testimonies of major civilizations brought together and in dialogue, from the most ancient times to the contemporary period, while emphasizing the multidisciplinary nature of the fields of artistic creation. Mirroring the future museum, Birth of a Museum proposes a new and unique reflection on the history of art.
