Pavillon des sessions
Opened in 2000, the Pavillon des Sessions is located to the south of the Louvre Palace, between the Flore and Denon wings and exhibits 120 masterpieces carefully selected by Jacques Kerchache. The opening of the Pavillon des Sessions marked an important turning point in the history of the western perception of the arts and civilizations of Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas. The distinctive interior architecture of this 1200 m2 space was designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte. Stripped-back, with simple volumes, limited partitions and bathed in light filtered by mesh screens of silvery bronze, this space is both modern and faithful to the original architectural values of the Louvre whereby works must be exhibited to maximum effect.
Capacity: Pavillon des Sessions: 300 guests
