La Vigie, one of Monaco’s historic villas, will be hosting a travelling design showcase from April 27-30. The target audience will be collectors, interior designers, architects, and art and design professionals, according to the organisers.
La Vigie was built in 1902 for the British publishing magnate Sir William Ingram and was a meeting place for French Riviera high society at the turn of the century. Other noted residents include Karl Lagerfeld, who lived here in the 1990s.
A grouping of international galleries have joined together to show contemporary design from the Middle East, Russian porcelain and Brazilian Modernism, to name a few of the themes. A Special Projects section will feature Serpentine Galleries and an installation of jewellery and sculpture by Christophe Graber; a talks and events programme will be held in the gardens.
NOMAD was founded by Giorgio Pace, a publishing, art and luxury brand specialist, who has staged projects and events with partners from Garage Museum of Contemporary Art to Rick Owens to Pierre Huyghe, and Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte, co-founder and art director of Carwan Gallery in Beirut. As the name suggests, NOMAD will travel to a number of destinations of architectural significance that will further explore design and context.
