Following his 2016 exhibition “Delete? Monaco”, Thierry Bisch visited CREM on Monday evening for a private cocktail to hand one of his works to Prince Albert and, the next day, to give a lecture.
Born in 1953 and the grandson of a painter, Thierry joined the Ecole Supérieure des Arts in Toulouse at the end of the 1970s, where he developed a passion for drawing and the live model.
Arriving in Paris in the 80s, the artist met the designer Thierry Mugler and became his personal assistant for ten years. Over the next two decades, his many exhibitions represented a turning point in his career and added to his growing reputation. In 2016, as part of the 10th anniversary of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, Thierry Bisch used the Principality as a backdrop to exhibit the works in his collection. Delete? Monaco presented a number of animal species threatened with extinction.
On this occasion, the Club des Résidents Etrangers de Monaco (CREM), was the setting for one of his works, The Golden Frog of Panama-Atelopus Zeteki.
Following the success of his exhibition, the artist chose CREM’s premises on Monday, April 23, in collaboration with Ferus Gallery, to offer one of his works to HSH Prince Albert for his 60th birthday.
This event was an opportunity for Thierry to thank His Serene Highness for his involvement and commitment in the fight against the threat of extinction of protected species. On the following day the artist returned to CREM to give a lecture on the sixth wave of extinction of animal species and to exchange points of view on the subject with members present.
National Council President Stéphane Valeri has visited the Grimaldi Forum to thank the team behind the screening campaign, while also encouraging more people to take the Covid-19 antibody test.
Prince Albert has been tested at a Covid-19 screening centre in Monaco to raise awareness about the government’s campaign to have as many people of the Principality tested as possible.
Monaco’s primary students made their return to school on Monday, the final group to do so in the government’s three-phase plan to lift the lockdown.
The Principality ordered some 11.5 million masks at the height of the crisis. Now those masks are being safely stored by the government for a rainy day.
