Rendezvous in Paris: Picasso, Chagall, Modigliani & Co. (1900-1939), in partnership with Centre Pompidou

Presenting more than 80 works exhibited for the first time in the Middle East, pieces by Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Amedeo Modigliani and Sonia Delaunay will be on display for the duration.

Furusiyya: The Art of Chivalry between East and West, in partnership with Musée de Cluny – Musée national du Moyen Âge
Exploring a unique link where furusiyya in the east means chivalry in the west, this exhibition looks at how these distinct practices of combat and knightly values led to a specific social class and culture in the Islamic east and Christian west. Stories of brave heroes, war, loss and love are told through 130 rare artworks – most of which are being seen in the region for the first time.

Check it out: February 19 – May 30 2020

10,000 Years Of Luxury in partnership with Musée des Arts Décoratifs

Another ground-breaking exhibition in the Middle East, fans can explore the history of luxury through fashion, jewellery, art, furniture and design, looking at the various ways each medium interprets it. From golden furniture fit for royalty to virtuoso objects from the Houses of Christian Dior, Chanel, Cartier, Balenciaga and more, this also explores the prominent role of women in defining luxury, and is one you won’t want to miss.

Check it out: October 30 2019 – February 15 2020
