This au­tumn, two mu­se­ums ded­i­cated to Yves Saint Lau­rent will open in Paris and Mar­rakesh.

Vis­i­tors to the Modigliani ex­hi­bi­tion at Tate Modern which opens on 23 Novem­ber 2017, will be able to en­joy a new in­te­grated vir­tual re­al­ity ex­pe­ri­ence, aimed at en­hanc­ing our un­der­stand­ing of his work.

The his­toric shop­ping des­ti­na­tion Ga­leries Lafayette has long been a sup­porter of the arts and its own foun­da­tion will open in Paris in the Au­tumn. Hav­ing built an­tic­i­pa­tion through a se­ries of pop-up ex­hi­bi­tions around the city fea­tur­ing its young, cut­ting-edge col­lec­tion, the Lafayette Foun­da­tion in­tends to use the space not just as an ex­hi­bi­tion venue, but also to host stu­dio spa­ces for young artists.

The hotly an­tic­i­pated Lou­vre Abu Dhabi will open to vis­i­tors later this year, though an of­fi­cial open­ing date is still to be an­nounced. The Jean Nou­vel-de­signed build­ing will be the first branch of the Lou­vre to open out­side France. Its per­ma­nent col­lec­tion will com­prise more than 600 pieces of art, and the per­ma­nent col­lec­tion will be com­ple­mented by c.300 mas­ter­pieces on loan from key French in­sti­tu­tions.

Or­gan­ised by the Is­tan­bul Foun­da­tion for Cul­ture and Arts, and cu­rated by the artist duo Elm­green & Dragset, it has as its theme ‘a good neigh­bour’, which will deal with mul­ti­ple no­tions of home and neigh­bour­hoods, ex­plor­ing how liv­ing modes in our pri­vate spheres have changed through­out the past decades.
