The Louvre is partnering with the Aga Khan

Translated via Google – December 15, 2011 – Yesterday, the Louvre and the Aga Khan Musem of Toronto signed a partnership framework for Islamic Art.

While the Museum of Louvre will open in a few months the Department of Islamic art , this agreement will enable the establishment of a policy of exchange and loans and the creation of joint projects (conferences, expertise and programs research).

The combination of the two museums had been initiated in 2007 when the Aga Khan had lent works for the exhibition ” Masterpieces of Islamic Art “at the Louvre . The Aga Khan Museum in Toronto , whose inauguration is scheduled for 2013, will focus on Islamic arts and cultures .
