Charlie Winston – Concert

Tickets (26 euros) available at FNAC. Discover more here.

Massimo Listri – Photographs – Exhibition

From Saturday, April 15, to April 28, Moretti Fine Art is pleased to announce its upcoming Monaco exhibition Massimo Listri – Photographs, a retrospective dedicated to Massimo Listri, a world-renowned artist of architectural photography.

The exhibition brings together a selection of 15 photographs that trace the artist’s long career, offering a complete panorama of his production, with large-scale works of considerable visual impact.

The images proposed are transcendental: his photos transmit an almost deafening silence, as if time had stopped, empty interiors illuminated by a perfect light that creates a surreal atmosphere and idealises their beauty. The same beauty that we find in Arno Brecker’s sculptures immortalised in these close-up portraits.

Massimo Listri’s photographic creations in homage to the most beautiful palaces, interiors, villas and extraordinary architectural works of all time. In 35 years and in collaboration with the most prestigious publishers in Europe and the United States, he has published over 80 books. Opening hours: Monday to Friday, 10:00 to 18:00, special opening on Saturday, April 15 and Sunday 16 at Moretti Fine Art. Discover more here.

George Condo – Humanoids – Exhibition

For George Condo, “the Humanoid is not a science fiction monster, but a depiction that uses traditional methods to bring a person’s inner emotions to the surface”. Over the course of eight sections, the exhibition traces the continuity of a profuse body of work that ranges from “space beings” to Who’s Who, from Guido Reni to Bugs Bunny. Featuring specially produced paintings, the exhibition offers a glimpse of the artist’s process of invention – as crazy as it is erudite – of humanoids. From Friday, March 31 to Sunday October 1, 2023 at the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco – Villa Paloma. Discover more about the exhibition here. Read more about George Condo in our article here.
