After a highly successful first edition in 2016, artmonte-carlo is back this weekend with 37 galleries of contemporary and modern art, fourteen invited exhibitions and four curated shows at the Grimaldi Forum.

Organised by Palexpo, and under the High Patronage of Prince Albert and the direction of Thomas Hug, the salon “aims to create a dialogue between a selection of renowned international galleries and a programme of institutional and curated exhibitions with a strong regional identity”.

New this year, contemporary art on a private boat is a special section of artmonte-carlo, and New York- and Berlin-based curator Mohammad Salemy will show “This is the Sea”, a group show with fifteen international artists on a private yacht at Port Hercule.

The Prix Off artmontecarlo–F.P.Journe will be awarded for the best presentation by a jury made up of key figures of the European art scene, including Marie-Claude Beaud (Nouveau Musée National de Monaco) and Olivier Gabet (Musée des Arts Décoratifs de Paris).

Artmonte-carlo, which counts amongst its partners, F.P.Journe, Ruinart, sabrina monte-carlo, Monaco Boat Service – Riva and the Société Monégasque de Transports, will also be hosting a concert celebrating Philip Glass’ 80th birthday, on Saturday at 7 pm.

Artmonte-carlo runs from Saturday, April 29, to Sunday, April 30, noon to 8 pm. Tickets: adults €20 and €10 for students, seniors and 6-16s (under-6 are free). For more see the website or a full list of participating galleries and non-commercial programme can be found below.
