Claude Lévêque. Sous le plus grand chapiteau du monde (Partie 2) _ EN
The Louvre has invited Claude Lévêque, a major figure on the international contemporary art scene, to create a site-specific work in its enormous medieval space. With its roots in the avant-gardes of the late 1970s, Lévêque’s work metamorphoses the spaces it occupies. Inspired by the moat and the keep, the artist has designed a self-contained viewing itinerary as a springboard for a narrative. Driven by a concentrated inner energy, Lévêque’s work interacts with the spaces it encounters, triggering a potent combination of evocation and sensation.

Conservation treatment of the Winged Victory of Samothrace and its monumental staircase
The great project to conserve the Winged Victory of Samothrace and the Daru staircase where it is showcased will start on September 3, 2013. It will last over a year and a half and entail an exceptional spatial rearrangement; the Winged Victory will not be visible to the public from September 3, 2013 to Summer 2014. This major undertaking, with a budget of four million euros, has received the support of Nippon Television Holdings, F. Marc de Lacharrière (Fimalac) and Bank of America Merrill Lynch Art Conservation Project, with a contribution of three million euros. The Louvre Museum wishes to open the possibility for all to contribute to this ambitious project through the “Tous mécènes !” (All Donors!) campaign, in order to raise the remaining one million euros necessary to complete the project.
