What you will see at Louvre-Lens:

Homer

The Temporary Exhibitions Gallery

The Musée du Louvre-Lens is organising one of the most ambitious exhibitions ever devoted to Homer, the “prince of poets”, author of two celebrated epics, the Iliad and the Odyssey, that have been an integral part of Western societies since antiquity. It will explore the origins of Homer’s fascinating infl uence on Western artists and culture down the centuries, and shed light on its many mysteries.

The Galerie du temps

5,000 years of history at a glance

The Gallery of Time is the veritable heart of the Louvre-Lens. A continuous open space covering 3,000 square metres, it is home to 200 masterpieces loaned by the Musée du Louvre. The chronological display extends from the 4th millennium BC to the mid 19th century and offers an original journey through the history of art and humanity. Intermixing periods, techniques and civilizations, it enables visitors to see and rediscover the Louvre’s collections in a new way.

The Gallery of Time is curated by Jean-Luc Martinez, president and director of the Musée du Louvre, and Vincent Pomarède, director of cultural and outreach programming at the Musée du Louvre.
