Louvre Abu Dhabi Opening Video

3 Weeks Before Opening, a New Video Teaser For the Louvre Abu Dhabi Is Released


With just a little over three weeks left until the highly-anticipated Louvre Abu Dhabi finally opens its doors to the public on November 11, people around the country are buying last minute tickets, and checking social media for updates about what to expect at the Louvre's first exhibitions.

Though details about opening day have been scarce, a newly-released video offers a little teaser about what's to come.

Though it doesn't provide visuals of the inside of the museum or any of the art that's set to be on display, the short film, which was posted by Louvre Abu Dhabi's Facebook account, pays homage to the ideology behind the museum.

As scenes from New York, Paris, and other cities are shown, a poem by Booker Prize-winning novelist and poet Ben Okri provides the soundtrack.

"We are the link between the past and the future," the poem reads, reminding us of the UAE's role in the future of this storied museum. "Here, through art, new possibilities are born. And new answers are given wings."
