Louvre Abu Dhabi To Open In November

The Louvre Abu Dhabi will open to the public on 11 November. The museum’s inauguration, which comes ten years after the signing of a $12 billion contract with the French institution, is due to be officially confirmed at a press conference in the Emirate this week. The culture project is a major diplomatic coup for the region and will include a two-day visit by the French President Emmanuel Macron, according to information shared with The Art Newspaper. “We are finally going to leave the realms of the imaginary and discover not only the architectural design of Jean Nouvel, but the content of a new museum, conceived under a bilateral agreement

that makes it an absolutely unique creation”, Louvre director Jean-Luc Martinez, told The Art Newspaper in Paris before he left for Abu Dhabi to attend the press conference held by the culture ministers of both countries.
