At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

The newest departments of the Louvre.

In Paris, the Louvre boasts one of the world's finest collections in the field of Islamic Art, brilliantly illustrating the world of Islam's culture from Spain to India, spanning the seventh to the late eighteenth century.

The all-new galleries devoted to Islamic Art will house 2,000 objects. Indeed, the Department of Islamic Art is the Louvre's newest department.

Extending over two floors on 2,800m ², the new department for Islamic Art will unveil architecture designed by the internationally renowned Mario Belliini and Rudy Ricciotti in the second half of 2012. It is located in the Denon wing, which skirts the Seine. The glass structure in wave form distinguishes itself significantly from the Louvre's other historic facades.

Opening projected for the second half of 2012
