Published on : 17-05-2024

Louvre Abu Dhabi Unveils Three Exhibitions For The Season.

The exhibitions allow visitors to explore different artistic movements, cultures and narratives.

The Louvre Abu Dhabi has launched a new season of exhibitions. The programme features diverse themes and collaborations consisting of educational workshops, interactive installations, and engaging events with the exhibitions. "Each exhibition at Louvre Dhabi is a testament to our dedication to offering unique and enriching experiences to our visitors," said Manuel Rabate, Director of Louvre Abu Dhabi.

"We are proud to present the best of the worlds of the East and the West with these upcoming exhibitions, which not only celebrate the rich heritage of art but also encourage dialogue and appreciation for diverse artistic expressions. Our new season further solidifies the museum's commitment to fostering dialogue, promoting cultural understanding, and celebrating the beauty of human creativity," he included.

Dr Guihem Andre, the acting Director of Scientific, curatorial, and Collections management at Louvre Abu Dhabi, added, "We aim to create a platform that transcends boundaries and brings people together through universal language and art. These exhibitions allow visitors to explore different artistic moments, culture, and narratives, fostering a deeper understanding of our shared human experiences."

The three upcoming exhibitions at Louvre Abu Dhabi are:

Louvre Abu Dhabi Art Here 2024 and the Richard Mille Art Prize

(September 20- December 15)

The fourth edition of Louvre Abu Dhabi Art here in collaboration with the luxury Swiss watchmaking brand Richard Mille, curated by Simon Nijami, a renowned independent curator, lecturer, writer and art critic who has curated many international exhibitions showcasing African contemporary artists. The concept of Awakenings inspires this year's edition and will expand to North Africa alongside the GCC. The expansion is attributed to the expertise of curator Simon Njami in the region, reflecting the museum's commitment to showcasing diverse artistic voices. Shortlisted artists can showcase their site-specific monumental artworks at the Louvre Abu Dhabi. One winner will be chosen by an esteemed jury panel as the recipient of the esteemed Richard Mille Art Prize in December 2024.

 

Post Impressionism: Beyond Appearances (October 16- February 9, 2025)

In collaboration with Musee d'Orsay, Louvre Abu Dhabi's Post Impressionism: Beyond Appearances exhibition will build upon the success of its major exhibition, Impressionism: Pathways to Modernity. This exhibition will delve into the fascinating period known as Post-Impressionism, focusing specifically on the years between 1886 and 1905. These two decades were a time of immense artistic innovation and experimentation, marking the transition from Impressionism to the explosive emergence of the Fauves at the Salon d Automne. The exhibition will be made by Jean Remi Touzet, conservator of paintings at the Musee d Orsay, and Jerome Farigoule, Chief Curator at Louvre Abu Dhabi, with the support of Aisha Alahmadi Curatorial Assistant at Louvre Abu Dhabi. One of the highlights of this exhibition is Vincent van Gogh's masterpiece, Van Gogh's Bedroom in Arles. This iconic artwork that depicts van Gogh's bedroom in the Yellow House in Arles, where he sat up his studio and lived from September 1888, represents the essence of Post Impressionism and its departure from traditional artistic conventions. Other key highlights from the Arab world are two masterpieces by Egyptian artist Georges Hanna Sabbagh: The Artist and his Family at La Vlarte 1920 and The Sabbaghs in Paris 1921.

 

Kings and Queens of Africa: Forms and Figures of Power (January 29, 2025-May 25, 2025)

In collaboration with Musse du quai Branly, Kings and Queens of Africa: Forms and Figures of Power celebrates African royalty's rich history and cultural heritage by showcasing carefully selected material extracts from various regions of the continent. With a collection of around 300 objects, including external loans, this exhibition will deliver a varied and intriguing exploration of the culture and beliefs that are intertwined with the lives of African kings and queens. The exhibition will be curated by Helene Joubert, Head Curator of the African Heritage Unit at Musee du quai Branly-Jacques Chirac, with the support of two associate curators: Malick Ndiaye El Hadji, Curator of the Theodore Monod Museum of African Art IFAN Cheikh anta Diop in Dakar, Senegal and Cindy Olohou an independent curator as well as Mariam AlDhaheri Curatorial Referee at Louvre Abu Dhabi. Among the many unique artworks on display is an Ife Head from Nigeria, 12th-14th century, on loan from Musee du quai Branly. The exhibition gives visitors an enlightening experience that will deepen their understanding and appreciation of African royalty. In addition to its diverse lineup of exhibitions, Louvre Abu Dhabi will relaunch its White Canvas project that takes the museum's artistic landscape. White Canvas will feature a range of exhibitions and happenings via art projections, inviting visitors to engage with art in a unique and immersive way. From the anticipated Post Impressionism: Beyond Appearances exhibition for celebrating Emirati heritage, there will be something for everyone to feast their eyes on this season.
