New Museum Frontiers. Louvre and Guggenheim in Abu Dhabi
January 8, 2007
Large-scale manoeuvres underway in the Arab Emirates aim to import trademarks (and works) by the most famous names of western museums. The Guggenheim has already announced the construction in Abu Dhabi of what will be its largest exhibiting space: 30,000 square metres, ready in five years, obviously signed by Frank O. Gehry.
Meanwhile, the French government urged by president Chirac is also making moves to open an Arab branch of the world’s most famous museum. It should rise on the island of Saadiyat, offshore of Abu Dhabi, and be accompanied by an art city and a tourism centre with a five-star hotel and golf courses. The overall cost of the operation is estimated at one billion euros, and the leading candidate to design it, is reportedly Jean Nouvel.
