The Louvre Offers Up Art Tour Based On The Carters' "Apes**t" Video
The Louvre museum in Paris was the quite conspicuous setting of The Carters' new music video for "Apres**t" from their surprise album, Everything is Love. Now, the project that posed GRAMMY winners Beyoncé and Jay-Z in front of some of the world's most recognizable art pieces has inspired a museum tour highlighting the works featured in the video.
The 90-minute self-guided tour will take visitors to 17 of the works of art featured in the "Apes**t" video, including the Greek marble piece “Nike of Samothrace,” Marie Benoist’s “Portrait Of A Negress,” and David’s “The Coronation Of Napoleon I And The Crowning Of The Empress Josephine,” according to AFP.
Classified by the museum as a "visitor's trail," fans can peruse the tour online without traveling to the City of Lights, though as is the case with many great works of art, it's a very different experience in person.
The superstar couple's surprise single, video and album confirmed long-running rumors of a collaboration project. Everything Is Love and the "Apes**t" video arrived June 16 in the midst of the pair's On The Run II tour. Beyoncé introduced the clip for the first time during a show in London, sending the crowd into a frenzy and igniting excitement from fans of both artists worldwide.
