From February 22 to March 15, the Opera Gallery in Monaco is hosting an exhibition of three artists – Jean Dubuffet, Hans Hartung and Pierre Soulages.
Jean Dubuffet is a French painter and sculptor. Hans Hartung is a French/German painter. Pierre Soulages is a French painter, engraver and sculptor.
The exhibition commemorates the 25th anniversary of Opera Gallery, which has locations around the world. It also marks the tenth anniversary of Opera Gallery being in Monaco.
The gallery describes the exhibition thus: “These idiosyncratic, international giants, of Post-War and contemporary art, still influence today.Founding father of Art Brut, Dubuffet was able to represent life’s extremes with a dualistic brutality and sensitivity, a post WWII truth through the centre of his stylised works.
“Hartung’s offering is more geared towards formal abstraction, with a profoundly delicate use of line and tone evoking life’s great source of energy.
“Soulages, who celebrates a centenary this year, offers further restraint demonstrating a capability or invoking infinite change through his limited palette and minimal, yet expressive, composition.”
Venue details: Opera Gallery, Monaco, 1 avenue Henri Dunant, Palais de la Scala 98000, Monaco.

The Route of Goût is the annual organic foodie event celebrating popular gastronomy, biology, ecology, health, youth and sports for a charitable purpose over four days in October. The free festival along Quai Albert Ier is organised by the Association Bio Chef Global Spirit under the High Patronage of HSH Prince Albert and chaired by Paolo Sari, the only starred chef who is certified organic in the world.

Also, we have a microclimate that allows lemon and cabbage, and avocado and mango to grow in the same soil.” From Thursday, October 12, until Sunday, October 15, in additional to the organic farmers market, there will be many educational activities on the topic of renewable energy and protecting the planet, as well as cooking demonstrations. Parents and children are invited to become involved. Children can also take part in a tennis competition at the Monte-Carlo Country Club, and on Friday at the Monte Carlo Beach the Gala Dinner will be prepared by children with a little help from local chefs. Saturday will have a marine flavour – dedicated to "craftsmen of the sea" – with a procession of 8 Riva boats accompanied by 8 starred chefs. The afternoon culinary competition is open to the public, but in the evening, the 8 chefs will prepare a memorable dinner consisting of 8 works of art, one dish by each chef. The first dinner ever made by 16 hands.

Part of the proceeds from the sale of Paolo Sari's first book – The Bio Chef – will be for the purchase of professional equipment for the start-up of the organic hotel school in Ambavanankarana, Madagascar, and for the construction of a second building in 2018.
