artmonte-carlo is an art fair whose intention is to establish on the French Riviera a leading artistic platform for contemporary art, modern art and contemporary design, in order to meet the demands of the many collectors and art lovers of the region.

artmonte-carlo will celebrate its seventh anniversary in July 2023 at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco under the High Patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco and the direction of Thomas Hug.

The Salon d'Art will host a prestigious selection of international galleries, presented in parallel with an special exhibition (In 2022 about Christian Louboutin).

In the spirit of artgenève, artmonte-carlo is distinguished by a selection of leading international galleries showcased in a carefully designed scenography and greatly enriched by a program of special exhibitions, promoting a dialogue between the market and the institutional world.

The two fairs, one inaugurating the annual European calendar of contemporary art fairs during the winter season in Geneva and the other taking place in the middle of the summer season on the French Riviera, unite two important European axes, both rich in art spaces and inhabited by many art lovers and collectors.

Set in a refined and human-sized setting, artmonte-carlo is in the image of the Principality: pleasant and with an international reputation.
