Each season, the Louvre features a series of temporary exhibitions, each the result of the latest expert research.
The Saga of the Thracian Kings
Archaeological Discoveries in Bulgaria
This exhibition explores ancient Thrace by looking at various components of the Odrysian kingdom. On show for the first time will be several complete sets of major tomb furnishings, allowing comparison of previously unseen items with similar material found in Greek city-states along the coast. The highlight of the exhibition will be the unprecedented display of items from the royal tomb of Seuthes III alongside the magnificent bronze head of that king.

Invention at the Louvre
From his earliest work in the 1990s, the art of Mark Lewis seems to have traveled backwards through the history of images. Painting, photography, and cinema engage in silent conversation in his films.

Gold and Ivory
Paris, Pisa, Florence, Siena. 1250–1320
The 2015 summer exhibition at the Louvre-Lens highlights the wealth of artistic exchanges between the capital of the Kingdom of France and what is now Tuscany in the latter half of the 13th century. Thanks to exceptional loans from around twenty European museums, the exhibition lifts the veil on the relationships between the major centers of artistic creation of the period: Paris, Florence, Siena, and Pisa.

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.
