Louvre Abu Dhabi:

November 2017 will witness the opening of the Louvre Abu Dhabi, a massive structure designed by French architect Jean Nouvel. The museum represents a milestone in the vision of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, who led the commissions to build a network of global projects in Abu Dhabi that also include branches of the Sorbonne, New York University and Cleveland Clinic.

Louvre Abu Dhabi is significant for a number of reasons. At the outset, it is the very first universal museum in the Arab world, displaying an expansive array of human cultural production from Africa, to Asia, Europe and the Americas. This allows visitors to gain a better understanding of human creativity throughout the ages. Louvre Abu Dhabi will act as a conduit not only for the Middle East to learn from western best practices, but will also channel Middle Eastern and ?global south? best practices and knowledge to the West. There are just as many lessons we can teach as there are to learn from the world, and that is the opportunity that Louvre Abu Dhabi will hopefully present.

What the Louvre Abu Dhabi will also do is to present Arab and regional art in a historical context since the museum is designed in a chronological order of displays. The question of what constitutes art and culture has for centuries been based on Eurocentric ideas of beauty and aesthetics. After all, an appreciation of regional cultures, aesthetics and artistic traditions are essential to understand the world we live in. These include Quranic manuscripts and modern Arabic Hurufism art, tent making, dhow building, and a wide selection of artefacts and adornments that are currently on display at the Lest We Forget exhibition at Warehouse 421 including jewellery, daggers, burkas and traditional garments worn by Emirati women and men.

One of the most anticipated by-products of Louvre Abu Dhabi will be the seminars, talks and conferences that it is expected to host throughout the year. The Agency France-Museums network, that oversees the Louvre in Paris, includes an array of scholars and researchers who can share their knowledge about the global artefacts in the possession of the museum and elsewhere. The Louvre Abu Dhabi resident experts will also be able to assist regional countries in their plans to develop their own institutions and collections. It will also give a boost to publishing of artistic books that are produced in the Arab world and will lessen the need to depend on western-based expertise and research can be conducted at least partly in the UAE.

The new museum can also play a role in identifying looted regional items and storing them until they are ready to be repatriated to their respective country of origin. Sadly, across the Middle East and as a result of the numerous conflicts this is a recurrent matter that needs all the resources we can spare.
