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.

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.

An Empire from Africa to Spain
From the 11th to the 15th centuries, a succession of dynasties – Almoravid, Almohad, and Marinid – fashioned a political and civilizational space centered on Morocco and stretching to Andalusia. Their conquests took them from the southern edge of the Sahara (northern fringe of Mauritania) to the northern reaches of Algeria and Tunisia. This empire’s influence, unifying for the first time the western Islamic world, was felt as far as the Near East.
