Impressionism: Pathways to Modernity – The Role of Strategic Planning in International Collaboration

Jointly organised by France Muséums, the Musée d’Orsay and Louvre Abu Dhabi, the new international exhibition Impressionism: Pathways to Modernity will be held from 12 October 2022 to 5 February 2023 at Louvre Abu Dhabi. Bringing together over 150 artworks including 130 on loan from the Musée d’Orsay, it focuses on a theme and a period that are central to the latter museum. By creating a dialogue between major painters such as Monet, Manet, Cézanne, Renoir and Degas, the exhibition invites us to explore the work and influences of artists who, from the mid-1850s onwards, opened up new creative pathways closely linked to the social upheavals of their time.

What is at stake when creating a museum?

Most of the museum projects have become more complex and larger in recent years. Clients have been pushing design and content boundaries, while designers have been challenging the limits of buildability. Programs have been getting fast-tracked, visitors’ expectations and customers’ demand for cutting-edge experiences seem to be rising day by day. To deliver such a coherent and complete experience to their audience, upcoming museum projects must rely on an integrative approach and clearly state their vision.
