Today's Exhibition

Contemporary art - Wim Delvoye at the Louvre
from May 31, 2012 to September 17, 2012

The Louvre invites Wim Delvoye to intervene at various locations within the museum and nearby: in the galleries of the Department of Decorative Arts, under the Pyramid, and in the Tuileries gardens.

From the down-to-earth redeployment of Gothic motifs to Baroque-inspired contorted and twisted crucifixes, Delvoye’s popular and decorative art, which has its roots in subversive and ironic reinterpretations of past styles, finds a particularly trenchant echo in the Louvre’s collections.

Where: Musée du Louvre, Under the pyramid, Tuileries gardens, Department of Decorative Arts
When: May 31, 2012 - September 17, 2012
