Now in its fifth edition, the art fair presents an even more exclusive and original format than previously with a selection of prestigious contemporary galleries including Hauser & Wirth, Pace, White Cube, kamel mennour, Perrotin, Air de Paris, Almine Rech, Esther Schipper, Galerie kreo and Carpenters Workshop, but also modern and ancient art dealers such as Dickinson, Waddington Custot, Mazzoleni, Thomas Gibson Fine Art, Robilant + Voena and Moretti Fine Art, the organisers said.

Beyond the stands, the public will see outdoor sculptures by Xavier Veilhan and Bertrand Lavier on the Esplanade of the Grimaldi Forum. The Solo artmonte-carlo – FPJourne Prize will reward the best exhibition presented at the show with an institutional jury made up of Björn Dahlström (director, Nouveau Musée National de Monaco), Célia Bernasconi (Chief Curator, Nouveau Musée National de Monaco) and by Clément Minighetti (Chief Curator, Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean).

Initiated in 2016 by Thomas Hug under the High Patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, artmonte-carlo is a leading artistic platform for contemporary art, modern art and design and has established itself over the years as the main international artistic event on the Côte d’Azur. artmonte-carlo was established following the success of artgenève, whose 10th edition will be celebrated at the end of January 2022 at Palexpo Geneva.

Readers are reminded that the major retrospective of Alberto Giacometti continues at the Grimaldi Forum, as does the Diane Venet artists’ jewellery exhibition at the same venue.
