There will be plenty going on outside on the Esplanade too, with an amazing selection of outdoor sculptures to enhance and entice even the most casual of art afficionados.  

The concept 

Now in its seventh year in Monaco, artmonte-carlo and its Swiss event, artgenève, are growing in popularity every year.  

It’s all down to its simple yet attractive concept: to unite galleries, collectors and potential buyers in a convenient and elegant setting. Given the Principality’s long-term desire to curate an enriched creative culture within its borders, as well as its enthusiastic population, it’s no surprise that artmonte-carlo has been welcomed so warmly year-after-year.  

The idea has expanded and developed to attract a plethora of high-end galleries and sought-after artists, and make today’s artmonte-carlo a can’t miss date in the European art world calendar.
