The American Friends of the Louvre (AFL) was founded by the Musée du Louvre in 2002 to strengthen ties between the Louvre and its American public, and to formalize the long-standing generosity of American patrons. Since 1793, the Louvre has welcomed new and emerging artists into its halls to follow in the footsteps of their great predecessors. In 2003, the Louvre initiated a new dialogue between the art of today and its permanent collection by inviting artists to present or create works inspired by the museum and its collections. This policy has established a connection and new resonance between the art of the past and contemporary creation. Recent commissions include works by Mike Kelley, Candida Höfer, Joseph Kosuth, Richard Serra, Louise Bourgeois and Willem de Kooning.
XXXX MAGAZINE, (xxxxmagazine.com or 4x-magazine.com), launched in 2009, is a multimedia publication showcasing established and emerging talent in contemporary art, film, photography, fashion and music. Each issue is brought together through the collaboration of over 100 creative contributors, presenting 20 – 30 original multimedia productions revolving around a specific theme. Recent contributors include Mr Brainwash, Ultra Violet, Moby, Elisa Sighicelli, Nick Hackworth, Heidi Lee, Patrik Andersson, Indira Cesarine, Nathaniel Rackowe and Sweat Shoppe, among many others. Multimedia works from the launch issue of XXXX Magazine were showcased at Visionaires Gallery in Paris from January 28 – February 11, 2010. Productions from the second issue premiered at AFL’s “Soiree au Louvre” in a video art installation at the Cultural Services of the French Embassy.
