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 requirements of the many collectors and art lovers of the region.

The interest shown by collectors and gallery owners who have experienced artgenève and the close links between Geneva and Monaco motivated Palexpo SA to create a second exhibition.

artmonte-carlo will celebrate its fifth anniversary at the end of April 2021 at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco and the direction of Thomas Hug.

The Salon d'Art will host some 50 carefully selected international galleries of modern and contemporary art, including newcomers. The Monegasque Salon will feature institutional exhibitions from, among others, the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam, the Mamco in Geneva, Le Consortium of Dijon, the Prix Pictet for photography, the Michelangelo Foundation for Creativity and Craftsmanship and the Fondation Opale for Contemporary Aboriginal Art.

In the spirit of artgenève, artmonte-carlo is distinguished by a small, select group of leading international galleries, which are showcased in a meticulously designed exhibition space, enriched by a programme of special exhibitions that encourage dialogue between the market and the institutional world.

The two fairs, one inaugurating the annual European calendar of contemporary art fairs during the Geneva winter season and the other starting the beautiful Monegasque season, bring together two important European axes, rich in art spaces and places of residence for numerous 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.
