Hors les Murs, Tuileries Garden – Louvre Museum 
FIAC has great pleasure in announcing the next edition of the Hors les Murs programme in the Tuileries garden of the Louvre Museum and the Delacroix Museum in October 2017. Since 2006, this outdoor exhibition presents sculptures, architectural projects and installations in the prestigious context of Domaine National of the Louvre and the Tuileries, in direct proximity to the Grand Palais. The programme will assemble some 20 artworks on the alleys, lawns, ponds and fountains of the garden, creating an impressive outdoor exhibition lasting one month. It enables FIAC galleries to exhibit monumental artworks that echo the patrimonial context and respond to the scale and the perspectives of the garden.
