The 5th Monaco Artists Forum, featuring both amateur and professional artists in the Principality, kicks off on Friday 5th June and will take the form of a virtual exhibition this year.
The biennial event normally takes place at the beginning of June at the Rainier III Auditorium and is highly awaited by artists from Monaco.
The initiative, conceived by the Prince’s Government and implemented by the Directorate of Cultural Affairs, aims to support local artists and integrate them into the Principality’s cultural policy.
The objective, particularly pertinent during this crisis period, is to ensure continuity in terms of cultural programming and to offer an interesting alternative to its many participants.
Nearly 80 artists, amateurs and professionals, Monegasques and residents, present their work on canvas, expressing themselves in the fields of painting, sculpture, and photography.
Once again, the public will have an opportunity to vote online for their favourite work. The winner will be announced on 13th June on the home page of the website – www.forumdesartistes.mc – which will honour the work and its creator.
This virtual art gallery will be available until Friday 3rd July. A catalogue of the 5th Monaco Artists Forum will be available to download, as a souvenir of this exceptional forum.

The institution, unavoidable in the Monegasque cultural landscape, is open to all and presents a service that promotes reading but also culture and leisure on a wider scale.
The Médiathèque welcomes you throughout the year at its two sites, the Louis Notari Library and the José Notari Sonotheque at 19 blvd Princesse Charlotte, with cultural events on the themes of literature, theatre, music, cinema and photography.
Nearly 450,000 documents: books, DVDs, CDs, French and foreign newspapers, magazines, photographs, correspondence, and musical scores are available.
For the fall, conferences on the theme of Cuba, Secrets of Communication, Women Artists in the presence of Nivèse Oscari at the Ecole de Nice, film screenings and live concerts, and several meetings organised as part of the operation "Prevert honoured” on the occasion of the 40 year anniversary of the death of the poet.
Photography will also be featured this autumn with two recurring themes presented by Adrien Rebaudo: photographic ballads during which photography and music will be put into perspective around a predefined theme; and the distractions photographiques which present themselves as a playful session while being put into practice.
