Since 2018, Monaco Art Week, which associates galleries and auction houses in the Condamine, Monte Carlo and Larvotto districts, has continued bringing the principality’s cultural institutions together and betting on the local scene. After a year of being unable to take place, this is a big test for the third edition, which can count on attendance by the historic Galerie Adriano Ribolzi, which celebrated its centenary last year and will feature Italian artist Sergio Fermariello’s painting and sculptures. Monte Carlo’s M.F Toninelli Art Moderne (by appointment) also has a beautiful lineup in store, including Hans Arp and Constantin Brancusi. Meanwhile, Sotheby’s will open its first private sales venue: a pop-up featuring luxury, design and a selection of modern and contemporary paintings.
NM Contemporary will host an outdoor event in the gardens of a collector in Eze-Bord-de-Mer, where art historian Gaspare Luigi Marcone will present "Luncheon on the Grass," with works by Nina Carini, David Reimondo and Fabio Roncato. The pandemic having upended everybody’s plans this year, at the same time as MAW the Grimaldi Forum’s roof will host artmonte-carlo, a concentration of international galleries. Drawing visitors from around the world, it will take place over two days, as usual. Almine Rech, Air de Paris, Kamel Mennour, White Cube, Pace and Hauser & Wirth will be in attendance.
