artmonte-carlo is an art fair initiated with the intention of establishing on the French Riviera a leading artistic platform for contemporary art, modern art and design, in order to meet the requirements of the many collectors and art lovers of the region.
The interest shown by collectors and gallery owners who have experienced artgenève and the close links between Geneva and Monaco motivated Palexpo SA to launch a second Salon d'art.
artmonte-carlo will celebrate its fifth anniversary from the 15th to the 18th of July 2021 at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco and the direction of Thomas Hug.
The Salon d'art will host a prestigious selection of international galleries of modern and contemporary art alongside a major restrospective of artist Alberto Giacometti.
In the spirit of artgenève, artmonte-carlo is distinguished by a small, select group of leading international galleries, showcased in a meticulously designed exhibition space, enriched by a programme of special exhibitions that encourage dialogue between the market and the institutional world.
The two fairs, one inaugurating the annual European calendar of contemporary art fairs during the Geneva winter season and the other starting the beautiful Monegasque season, bring together two important European axes, rich in art spaces and place of residence for numerous art lovers and collectors.
Set in a refined and human-sized setting, artmonte-carlo is in the image of the Principality: pleasant and with an international reputation.
