The exhibition “Furusiyya: The art of chivalry between east and west”, in partnership with the Musée de Cluny-Musée national du Moyen-âge, will allow chivalry enthusiasts to discover nearly 130 works of rare art. Finally, the Abu Dhabi Louvre will host “Charlie Chaplin: When art met cinema”, an exhibition where one can explore the avant-garde artistic creations of the time of Fernand Léger and Marc Chagall.
