From 2011 Maybach is the official partner of the famous Louvre. On Maybach’s initiative, over the next three years a series of sculpture installations featuring work by internationally renowned contemporary artists and sculptors will be staged on the presentation area beneath the world-famous glass pyramid. It will be the first time since the glass pyramid was built in 1989 that the area will be used for the installations of works of art, starting today with a brand-new sculpture by the leading British contemporary artist Tony Cragg, to be shown as part of his major exhibition at the Louvre until October 2011.
For this first collaboration, Tony Cragg presents the new sculpture “Versus” under the glass pyramid. This monumental sculpture is produced especially for this exhibition at the Louvre showing eight other sculptures in the Cour Marly and in the Cour Puget.
