Where to go this Monaco Art Week

Monaco Art Week is returning for its fourth edition this month with a huge variety of fine art, objet d’art, jewellery, sculpture, and mixed media pieces on show at locations all over the Principality. 

The timing of Monaco Art Week could not be any more perfect. Tying directly into the artmonte-carlo fair, as well as a great number of exhibits all over the Côte d’Azur this summer, the Art Week festivities are an excellent addition to an already exciting season for art lovers.

The event was created to offer clientele opportunities to discover more through an organised week where participating galleries and auction houses showcase their pieces from La Condamine to Larvotto via Monte-Carlo.

Visitors will find a selection of art from different periods, including gorgeous Renaissance masterpieces at Moretti Fine Art, transgressive works by Paul McCarthy at Hauser & Wirth, design and figurative art at Bastian Gallery in the magnificent Monaco villa of Lenzwerk Monaco, and wooden sculptures carved from centuries old olive trees by Pablo Atchugarry at Galerie Adriano Ribolzi.
