All good things must come to an end, even summer and its accompanying roster of special events in the Principality of Monaco.
Now is your last chance to catch the top-quality shows and attractions that have punctuated the summer season. Here’s a list of a few of our favourites.
OPEN AIR CINEMA
One of summer’s greatest pleasures is al fresco everything, but complemented by cinema? What could be a better way of keeping up with the current blockbusters.
Monaco’s outdoor movie theatre has been screening the biggest films from the summer, as well as some classic favourites all summer long, but as the season ends, so too does the programming. There are still a few days enjoy this seasonal experience, but the shows only go on until 3rd September, so make a date, grab the popcorn and head to the movies!
MONET EN PLEINE LUMIÈRE
Arguably the most celebrated show of the summer, Monet en Pleine Lumière at the Grimaldi Forum follows the artist’s life on the Riviera through some 100 iconic artworks. The pieces were gathered from collections all over the world, some never having been publicly displayed, and together give a wonderful perspective on how his time in the region shaped his art. The show is scheduled to run only until 3rd September.
This Galerie des Pêcheurs-hosted exhibit featuring a selection of images from the oceans and seas offers insight into the wonder, beauty and fragility of the undersea world. Put on by the Monaco Department of the Environment, Olivier Jude and Sylvie Laurent, it highlights the marine environment in a fascinating way. The exhibition ends 31st August, so time is of the essence to catch this show before it ends.
AU COEUR D’UN REGARD- JANE GEMAYEL
Lovers of Jane Gemayel’s expressive works that “push the boundaries of art and inspire deep emotions” only have until 23rd September to visit the Galerie Adriano Ribolzi to see her unique blend of contemporary and traditional pieces up close and personal.
A dozen artists present works on the theme of femininity and the power of feminine beauty at this Espace 22-hosted exhibit. The show ends on 12th September, but there are two more chances to attend vernissages on 31st August and 7th September.
Fans of the visually stimulating George Condo have a little bit longer to catch his exhibit, Humanoids, at the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco, which will come to an end on 1st October. Nevertheless, make sure this one is down in your diary for sometime in September. It’s really something to see!
Make sure you’re never left out of the conversation.
