Louvre Abu Dhabi: Talking Art Series is a series of panels taking place in the framework of the launch of the Louvre Abu Dhabi. Through this series the public is invited to discover the collection of the Louvre Abu Dhabi museum.

The series engages with the heart of the museum and the concepts of discovery, convergence and education that are deeply rooted in its identity. They work as catalysts for progressive engagement on the overarching theme of universality on which the curation of the museum is based – drawing on the Middle East’s role as a bridge between east and west, north and south, as a region at the crossroads of civilisations.

The collection embodies this unique meeting of cultures and the talks expand on these ideas of sharing and universal knowledge whilst exploring the aesthetic expressions of different civilisations and cultures from the most ancient to the most contemporary.

Following on from the success of the first series, the second Louvre Abu Dhabi: Talking Art Series begins in October 2012, and will continue to explore themes of universality, bringing together eminent specialists, museum curators and academics to introduce the public to the artistic and historical messages of the future museum.
