Planète Mer – Exhibition

Until Thursday, August 31. As precious as they are vulnerable, the oceans and seas cover 70% of our planet and account for 97% of all water found on Earth. They connect people, provide food and oxygen, regulate our climate by absorbing almost a quarter of the CO2 produced, and are home to vastly diverse species. With the support of the Monaco Department for the Environment, Olivier Jude and Sylvie Laurent have chosen to exhibit a selection of unusual images that incite a sense of wonder, but also a deep reflection on the protection of our marine environment. This exhibition is being held under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II. At the Galerie des Pêcheurs.

Monet en pleine lumière – The last day of the Exhibition

This major exhibition is part of celebrations to mark the 140th anniversary of Claude Monet’s first visit to Monaco and the Riviera, where the great impressionist, already halfway through his long life, would discover the landscapes and light that were to be the turning point of his work and career. Around a section devoted to the paintings he produced during his stays on the Riviera, featuring twenty-one loaned pieces displayed for the first time close to the very places they were painted, the exhibition looks at the Master’s work, from his early days in Le Havre to his final paintings in Giverny, from the perspective of his constant quest to capture light. This exhibition-event entitled Monet in Full Light is curated by Monet expert Marianne Mathieu. Read our article here. Until Sunday, September 3 at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco.

Santo Sospir – Mauro Restiffe / Jean Cocteau – Exhibition

This silent conversation, orchestrated by Restiffe in the Villa Sauber, is like a cinematographic montage that alternates long shots and close-ups, monumental prints and smaller formats, fostering an embodied vision of the tattooed villa, where a (faceless) self-portrait of the author appears. Until Sunday, October 15 at the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco – Villa Sauber. Discover more here.
