After a hazy summer, plan to reconnect with incredible arts and culture on offer in the region this September with the latest exhibition coming to the UAE’s capital.
A new exhibition featuring the works of Picasso is coming to Abu Dhabi this September
There are many reasons to visit the art gallery and museum located within Abu Dhabi. Not only is the Louvre filled with thought-provoking and eye-opening collections, but is a vision of wonder in itself.
But if whether you’ve explored the inner and outer offering of the 2017-established museum yet or not, there’s now a new reason to make your way over to the Louvre.
As of September 2019, Rendezvous in Paris will be the latest exhibition on offer for the public to marvel over.
A collection of pivotal pieces from the avant-garde art movement, the curation is made up of masterpieces from the likes of Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Amedeo Modigliani, Constantin Brancusi, Juan Gris, Chaïm Soutine, and Tamara de Lempicka.
Paintings, sculptures and photography will all be on display within the exhibition that is is being put on in Abu Dhabi in partnership with Paris’ Centre Pompidou, with Agence France-Muséums aiding in the organisation.
Manuel Rabaté, Director of Louvre Abu Dhabi labelled the collection “a great start to our ambitious new 2019-20 season” and added: “For the first time ever in Abu Dhabi, residents and visitors will be able to see works by Picasso, Chagall, Modigliani, Delaunay, Lipchitz and other masters in a show encompassing the key movements of 20th century Modern art.
“This gathering of the widest ever range of classical Modernists’ works in the UAE reflects our commitment to bringing art from all over the world to our diverse audience,” he continued.
Dr Souraya Noujaim, Scientific, Curatorial and Collections Management Director at Louvre Abu Dhabi, meanwhile commented: “From Cubism and Fauvism to Russian Avant-Garde and other genres, this exhibition will highlight the incredible contributions to Modern art by émigré artists in Paris. Encapsulating the foundation of Louvre Abu Dhabi as a universal museum, Rendezvous.”
Rendezvous in Paris will be open between September 18th to December 8th 2019.
