The New National Museum of Monaco (NMNM) is presenting an exhibition of recent acquisitions made with the support of UBS Monaco on the third floor of Villa Paloma.
Eleven works are on show out of the 19 acquired within the partnership: those of Matti Braun, Nathalie Du Pasquier, Francesco Gennari, Apostolos Georgiou, Jef Geys, João Maria Gusmão, Pedro Paiva, Roland Flexner, Jean-Michel Sanejouand and Daniel Steegmann Mangrané.
UBS has been supporting NMNM exhibitions for the past six years as a lead partner, and its commitment has been extended to enriching and sustaining national collections of contemporary art. This presentation of the collection is one of the highlights of the national museum’s 2018 programme, the NNMM says.
The UBS endowment has allowed the museum, in addition to the budget allocated by the State, to develop its collection of important work conceived by living artists, corresponding to the major themes that guide the museum’s acquisitions policy.
The arts, sciences and techniques, especially in the context of the history of photography and cinema, and landscape as a mental construction and no longer natural, form part of the museum’s focus.
