Each season, the Louvre features a series of temporary exhibitions, each the result of the latest expert research.

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.
