Islamic Art at the musée du Louvre
The New Department of Islamic Art

This catalogue has been published for this event

The Department of Islamic Art is the newest department in the Musée du Louvre. Created in 2003, its refurbishment has been underway since 2008. From September 2012 it is due to reopen in a completely new, restyled setting, which will provide its collections with a space befitting their prominence within the museum.
Before its inauguration, we invite you to take a look behind the scenes of this incredible project.

Twenty years on from the Louvre's great pyramid project, the creation of a new Department of Islamic Art within the Musée du Louvre represents a milestone in the history of the museum and former palace. An architectural, cultural, artistic, and civilizational offering, the new department invites visitors on a veritable sensory voyage of discovery into its Islamic collection. A hub of intercultural exchange, it reveals the radiant face of a civilization that encompassed an infinitely varied wealth of humanity.
