The new edition of artmonte-carlo, which will take place from the 25 th to the 28 th of April 2019 at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco under the High Patronage of Prince Albert II of Monaco and the direction of Thomas Hug, will welcome new prestigious brands including White Cube, Raffaella Cortese, Mazzoleni or Skopia who will join the galleries loyal to the Salon since its creation such as Gagosian, Almine Rech, Blain I Southern, kamel mennour, Perrotin, Marlborough Contemporary, Mitterrand, Tornabuoni Art, Franco Noero, Continua or Air de Paris.

New exhibitions

We are pleased to announce the first edition of PAD Monaco, which will host 30 of the most important design, decorative arts and primitive arts galleries in the Diaghilev space of the Grimaldi Forum.

artmonte-carlo will be connected to PAD Monaco by a new section of 10 monographic exhibitions presented by galleries, each featuring one artist. The Prix Solo artmontecarlo - F.P.Journe will be awarded to the best exhibition by an institutional jury. The prestigious watchmaker will acquire a work by the award-winning artist, which will then be donated to the Nouveau Musee National de Monaco.

Curated shows

In the luminous Verrière of the Grimaldi Forum, a vast installation by Anna Boghiguian, generously loaned by the Silvia Fiorucci Roman collection will welcome visitors at the entrance of the Salon.

Participating galleries will partake in "Face to Face", a group exhibition featuring a crowd of sculptural creatures.

Hors-les-murs and thanks to the collaboration of artmonte-carlo and Monaco Boat Service, the emblematic Tunnel Riva at Port Hercule will host Ruffles, a performance evening by English artist Zoe Williams.

In fact, artmonte-carlo also takes place outside the Grimaldi Forum, allowing art to be federated and circulated throughout the Principality:

  • The Nouveau Musée National de Monaco will host Ombre d'azur, transparence, an exhibition by Ettore Spalletti at Villa Paloma, as well as an exhibition of works from a private collection at Villa Sauber, curated by Cristiano Raimondi.
  • Artcurial and Monte-Carlo Societe des Bains de Mer will present in partnership the first edition of Monaco Sculptures. This exhibition will bring together a selection of sculptures by artists from the 20th and 21st centuries gathered in the Resort Monte Carlo - Societe des Bains de Mer.

artmonte-carlo / The Forum

artmonte-carlo continues to develop its Forum with the Symposium "Imagining the Future: Contemporary Art Prizes in the 21st Century. Challenges and Opportunities in Awarding Excellence in the Arts", curated by Lorenzo Fusi, Artistic Director of PIAC and promoted by the Fondation Prince Pierre de Monaco. The launching conference of the Societa Delle Api, a non-profit organization that promotes solidarity, knowledge and collaborative practices in different disciplines, will also take place.

CRISS-CROSS art institutions in dialogue, the Professional Forum dedicated to contemporary art museums, public and private foundations, art centers and other organizations to promote and develop their professional networks, will be held for the second time in parallel of the Salon.

Finally, artmonte-carlo will partner with several artistic organizations in the Principality such as Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, which will present "Corpus" choreographed by Jean-Christophe Maillot and Goyo Montero involving almost all the fifty dancers of the Ballets de Monte-Carlo, as well as the Pavillon Bosio, Monaco's Fine Art school and Le Logoscope, a laboratory for multi-media artistic research.
