Pavillon des Sessions

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 1,200 m2 space designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte is faithful to the original architectural values of the Louvre which strives to display works in such a way as to reveal their full potential.
