Have you ever seen regular old museum attendees go apeshit? No? Well, thanks to the Louvre, now you can!
The Paris museum — home to famous works like Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, and more recently, the music video for Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s song, “Apeshit,” off the album EVERYTHING IS LOVE — now offers a guided tour that will retrace the steps the power couple took when creating their visual masterpiece.
The tour will examine the 17 pieces of art that were featured in the Carters’ “Apeshit” video, directed by Ricky Saiz.
In addition to the Mona Lisa, it will take a look at famous works like The Winged Victory of Samothrace, The Raft of the Medusa, The Coronation of Napoleon, the ceiling of the Galerie d’Apollon, and more.
According to the website, the thematic trail tour, which lasts 90 minutes, is only offered on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. But the museum also offers a detailed guide to the works, so you can learn more from the comfort of your own home.
While it may seem like the Louvre continues to pull out all the stops for Bey and Jay — I mean, they let them shut down the museum and recorded a freaking music video for goodness’ sake — it should be noted that this isn’t the first time the Louvre has created a celebrity-related tour.
In May 2016, after will.i.am released a 12-minute documentary, titled will.i.am at the Louvre, and a music video for his song “Mona Lisa Smile,” the museum responded with another guided tour that highlighted collections from the Department of Decorative Arts.
Here’s to present and past art continuing to collide.
