Each season, the Louvre features a series of temporary exhibitions, each the result of the latest expert research.
Masks, Masquerades, and Mascarons
The exhibition presents approximately one hundred artworks showing the paradoxical function of the mask, an emblem of illusion that consists of "disguising and producing a double".

Claude Lévêque - Sous le plus grand chapiteau du monde
Claude Lévêque's work intervenes in the spaces it encounters, harnessing the energy of his densely-woven, intense 'plastic' vocabulary to deliver a powerful visual and sensory shock. As guest artist in residence at the Louvre, Lévêque's engagement begins with an incandescent light installation at Ieoh Ming Pei's celebrated Pyramid.
