Louvre Abu Dhabi
The Louvre Abu Dhabi is a new cultural lighthouse, bringing people from many civilizations together to shed new light on humanity's shared stories.
The Louvre Abu Dhabi was founded in March of 2007. The UAE and France have created extraordinary cultural cooperation, with the opening of the Louvre Abu Dhabi on Saadiyat Island being the centerpiece. The cooperation would bring together the UAE's ambitious vision of cultural growth and openness with France's art and museum expertise. It would delve into the universal themes that expose and unite humanity.
The Louvre is the ultimate design. It celebrates the region's diverse multicultural past while representing the dynamic character of the current Arab world. The loan of artworks to this UAE museum is coordinated by Agence France-Muséums, a consortium of 17 of France's most prestigious cultural institutions, which also offers management skills.
This concept underpins all the museum accomplishes, from its origins as a cross-cultural partnership to its stunning building, which mixes French design with Arabic tradition. The Louvre celebrates cultural achievements from the dawn of time to the present. The galleries are arranged chronologically rather than geographically. Respect, curiosity, learning, and self-reflection are all goals.
Louvre Abu Dhabi was built as the core of a new urban area for the United Arab Emirates' capital city, thanks to architect Jean Nouvel's distinctive concept. Its design was inspired by the region's rich architectural traditions and the museum's unique location at the point where the Arabian sky meets the dunes of Saadiyat Island and the seas of the Arabian Gulf, creating a symphony in concrete, water, and the delicate dance of reflected light. Louvre Abu Dhabi is not just the Arab world's first global museum, but also a strong emblem of the United Arab Emirates' ambition and success. It is now regarded one of the world's modern urban wonders.
