The Monaco Artists Forum, a visual artists exhibition, has put out a call for works of art made by residents of the Principality for their upcoming summer 2022 show.
The 6th Monaco Artists Forum is a government-sponsored event designed to promote “the integration of artists from the Principality into cultural policy”, according to the government.
Artists who have resided in Monaco five years or more are encouraged to submit their best artistic pieces for an exhibition at the Espace Léo Ferré this summer.
The format will give each artist the chance of being offered an exhibition area of two metres by two metres to show a pictural creation of their own making. Sculptors will be provided with a base.
Ahead of the event, a Public Prize will be awarded to a participating artist, having been chosen by the population. The candidate’s works will be available for viewing online on the event website and the winning work will have their own space during the exhibition, as well as being showcased by the organisers on social media and in other media.
To apply, artists must provide a completed application, a Monaco identity or residence card, a photo or paper print of their work, and a digital file in PDF or JPEG.
The event, which is being organised by the Department of Cultural Affairs, will be held on 2nd and 3rd July and will be open to the public from 11am to 7pm.
Artists who would like to be a part of the exhibit can collect an application form directly from the Department of Cultural Affairs at 4 Boulevard des Moulins, or visit their website and download it at https://service-public-particuliers.gouv.mc/Temps-libre/Culture/Activite-artistique/Participer-au-Forum-des-Artistes
Applications must be returned no later than 1st March to be considered.
