Monaco Art Week and artmonte-carlo to spotlight the Principality’s dynamic arts scene this July

monaco art week

July is chalking up to be a big month for art in the Principality, with two major cultural events set to showcase the vibrant and evolving arts scene that has taken root in this corner of the Mediterranean.

Between 2nd and 7th July, Monaco Art Week will offer visitors a curated view of the Principality’s dynamic arts scene.  

The programme will feature a vast array of exhibitions, artistic meet-ups, conferences and roundtable discussions in locations and venues across Monaco. A highlight will undoubtedly be the ‘new to the schedule’ session led by Swiss auctioneer Simon de Pury on ‘The Future of the Art Market’, which will host notable figures such as visual artist Hilde Lynn Helphenstein – also known as Jerry Gogosian – and artist Kenny Schachter. 

From Artcurial and Christie’s to Sotheby’s and Boghossian, the roll call of galleries that will unite under the banner of Monaco Art Week really is a ‘who’s who’ of the biggest names in the art world, both here in the Principality and beyond its borders. New additions to the line-up in 2024 include the Almine Rech Gallery, Collect MC Association and Hôtel des Ventes de Monte-Carlo. 

“Monaco is an experience… People need to see what it can offer in terms of the art world, which is so much as there are many unique exhibitions that are taking place here and have taken place in the past, showing the evolution of Monaco’s art scene,” said Fabrizio Morretti, Vice President of Monaco Art Week, at the event’s press unveiling on 5th June.  


Coinciding with Monaco Art Week this year is the eighth edition of artmonte-carlo, which will be hosted by the Grimaldi Forum on 6th and 7th July.  

Now under Director Charlotte Diwan, the show is set to feature 27 international galleries and more than 200 artists from around the world. Returning participants include Perrotin, Mennour and Van de Weghe, alongside local galleries such as Hauser & Wirth and the Kamil Art Gallery. 

“We are honoured to participate in the artmonte-carlo salon and show our curated exhibitions to the Principality,” Federica Berretta, the director of Hauser & Wirth Monaco, told Monaco Life.  

Meanwhile, Safia El Malqui, an ambassador for artmonte-carlo, said, “I am very proud of artmonte-carlo as it has now become an international art event and marked its place on the global arts stage.” 

In addition to the numerous galleries, Monaco’s preeminent cultural institutions will also be given places of honour at the show, with representatives from the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, the Princess Grace Theatre and Pavillon Bosio all confirmed to be attending.
