When: Apr 22, 2013 Aug 24, 2013 (Ended)

Time: $StartTime$ to $EndTime$

Where: Manarat al Saadiyat, Saadiyat Island


The exhibition presents important works of art from the Louvre Abu Dhabi permanent collection, some of which have never been seen, or revealed, before. 

Almost 130 artworks will be displayed at Manarat Al Saadiyat, giving an insight into the museum’s narrative and collection ahead of its 2015 opening.

Born of an agreement between the Abu Dhabi and French governments, Louvre Abu Dhabi will display art, manuscripts as well as significant historical, cultural and sociological objects. The iconic building, designed by Jean Nouvel, is conceived as a complex of pavilions, plazas, alleyways and canals, evoking a city floating on the sea. Hovering over the complex will be a form inspired by traditional Arabic architecture: a vast, shallow dome - some 180 metres in diameter - perforated with interlaced patterns so that a magical, diffused light filters through.

During the Holy Month of Ramadan, Manarat Al Saadiyat exhibition centre is open daily from 10am – 2pm and from 8pm-11pm.
