Exhibition Catalogue Dragon and phoenix - Centuries of Exchange between Chinese and Islamic Worlds, presented at Louvre Abu Dhabi (6 october 2021 - 12 february 2022).

When the Dragon and the Phoenix met, who could have predicted the impact on global trade, art and history ?

As a museum with a universal viewpoint, Louvre Abu Dhabi explores stories of cultural connections. In this exhibition we see a new perspective on the meeting of two great cultures, and in this story, Europe is not the central character.

From Arabia and Africa to the far reaches of Asia, along ancient trade routes - on both land and sea - people, technology and luxury goods travelled for more than 800 years. Through a display of 240 masterpieces, we explore the remarkable and little-known history of these cultural exchanges.
