Henri Loyrette, director of the Louvre Museum from 2001 to 2013, has been appointed by the Syndicat National des Antiquaires as President of the 2016 Biennale.
In this capacity, he will be heading the committee in charge of this renowned event which gathers the best art galleries, antique dealers and high-end jewellery firms at the Grand Palais in Paris. The committee will be responsible for the exhibitors' selection process and will search for new talents among antique dealers and art galleries, both in France and abroad.
Henri Loyrette will also help improve and strengthen the Biennale's partnerships with the leading cultural institutions and its international prestige.

A new impulse for the Biennale des Antiquaires
