Acknowledgments:
The exhibition of Wim Delvoye in the Département des Objets d’Art was made possible thanks to the support of the Flemish Government.
Mercedes-Benz France, official sponsor of the Wim Delvoye installation under the Pyramid.
With the support of Louis Vuitton.

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.

Organized by:

Marie-Laure Bernadac.
