"Nefertiti’s Theorem" at the Institut du Monde Arabe 1 Rue des Fossés Saint-Bernard 75005 Paris fr

The Arab World Institute is holding an exhibition entitled "Nefertiti’s Theorem".

The exhibition questions – and even challenges – the methods traditionally used to present works of art, using Egypt as an example and works produced throughout the country’s history: from the pharaonic, Coptic, Islamic, modern, and contemporary periods.

Encouraging the public to take a more critical approach to exhibitions, they invite us to reflect on how works of art are affected when they are displaced in time and space, and to question the way in which they are appropriated.

Opening times

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10am to 6pm.
Friday from 10am to 9.30pm, weekends and holiday from 10am to 7pm.

Admission fees and rates

  • 7 €
  • reduced rate: 5 €

  • Free for people under 18 years old and disabled people
