Exhibitions
Furusiyya: The Art of Chivalry between East and West
Now on - May 30, 2020

Chivalry is dead, they say. Whether or not you agree with this sentiment, there's no denying the historical impact of knightly codes of valor, comradery, combat etiquette, and courtly love on our modern-day socio-political and cultural norms.

From the concept of Furusiyya in the East to chivalry in the West, this exhibition explores the ancient roots of knightly codes as they developed around the world. See what chivalry meant across the spectrum, from Iraq and Syria to France and Spain, in an exhibit of over 130 rare artifacts such as arms, armor, and manuscripts from the 10th up to the 16th century.

Description

The Louvre Abu Dhabi is a 'floating city' of culture, packed to the immaculately designed gills with some of the greatest art in the world. See originals by the likes of Da Vinci, Matisse, Mondrian, Monet and more in a mind-boggling 64,000m2 museum designed by legendary architect Jean Nouvel. It's east meets west in a groundbreaking gallery that's as much of a work of art as the masterpieces it contains.

Abu Dhabi's own Louvre dominates Saadiyat Island, with an instantly iconic design. The intricate girding of over 8,000 uniquely shaped metal stars comprise a giant domed roof, creating crisscrossing beams of light and shadow. The scale and audacity of the architecture rival Louvre 1.0.

Beneath, you'll discover a veritable village of 23 galleries, floating on a placid lake. Wandering the serene pathways is an experience in itself, but don't forget: there's legions of top-tier art awaiting inside. It's an embarrassment of riches.

Conceived as a 'universal' museum that's accessible to all, the collection is arranged chronologically, not geographically. This means you'll see works from Ancient Egypt alongside pieces from Europe and Asia, and you might spot a Van Gogh rubbing shoulders with small-scale folk art.

Celebrating the connections between people and cultures across the globe, the Louvre Abu Dhabi is an art museum in a league of its own.

Meest fantastische museum ter wereld misschien. Genoten van bijzondere architectuur en manier van exposeren. Parkeren gratis. Goed te vinden. Dus geen google maps gebruiken in auto kostte vermogen!!! Smorgens om 10 uur precies ben je de eerste en alleen, de bussen met chinezen komen iets later binnen.
