Medieval Morocco. An empire from Africa to Spain


This major exhibition, presented by the Louvre in association with the FNM, Morocco’s national museum foundation, encourages a reassessment of the period from the eleventh to the fifteenth centuries, when the civilization of Western Islam was at the height of its glory, as much in terms of its artistic production as its place in history. A succession of dynasties - Almoravid, Almohad and Marinid - fashioned a cultural and political space centered on Morocco, gaining control of an empire stretching from sub-Saharan Africa to Andalusian Spain. This empire’s influence, unifying for the first time Islamic communities in the West, was felt as far away as the Near East. Bringing together nearly 300 works, the exhibition includes many of the most beautiful examples of this period’s achievements in areas such as architectural decoration, textiles, ceramics and calligraphy, illustrating this long and complex history, both essential to understanding contemporary Morocco and the very source of its modernity.

New galleries for the Department of Islamic Art


The creation of a new wing dedicated to Islamic art at the Louvre represents a decisive phase in the architectural history of the palace and in the development of the museum. The design and installation of these new galleries is the museum’s single largest expansion project since I. M. Pei created the now-famous Pyramid twenty years ago. The new department will soon be home to one of the most exceptional collections of Islamic art in the world, owing to its geographic diversity, the historical periods covered, and the wide variety of materials and techniques represented.
