Titled Photographs 1842 – 1896: An Early Album of the World, Louvre Abu Dhabi’s second international exhibition for this year will features more than 250 of the earliest photographs taken between 1842 and 1896, including the Middle East, with images from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, India, US, Philippines and elsewhere. The showcase explores the development of photography in its initial years, reflecting the universal character of Louvre Abu Dhabi, as well as its chrono-thematic curatorial approach.
Organised by Louvre Abu Dhabi, musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac and Agence France-Muséums, and sponsored by the Bank of Sharjah, the exhibition will go on till July 13, 2019. The works mainly originate from musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac’s collection, which includes some of the earliest photographs produced outside Europe. These will be complemented by several exceptional loans from the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, musée national des arts asiatiques – Guimet, Musée d’Orsay, la Société de Géographie and La Cité de la Céramique – Sèvres & Limoges.
Alongside the exhibition, the museum will host a range of educational and cultural activities around the topic of photography, including workshops, four film screenings, a conference and a cine-concert entitled In the Land of the Head Hunters in the opening weekend.
