Over the years, the Principality of Monaco has hosted an
increasing number of varied artistic events. Home to art galleries
and internationally renowned auction houses, it has become an
important place in the art world with its fairs, exhibitions and
Galleries and auction houses established in the Principality have
chosen to join forces around the same objective: to promote their
rich and diverse activities, and contribute to Monaco’s cultural
reach on the local, regional and international scene. The MONACO
ART WEEK association is the result of this shared desire.
The first event initiated by the association is MONACO ART
WEEK. It will take place between 26 and 29 April 2018. All the
Principality’s neighbourhoods will be involved in the event, in
conjunction with the artmonte-carlo fair at the Grimaldi Forum and
Nomad at La Vigie.
At the same time, the Ballets de Monte-Carlo and the Festival
Printemps des Arts de Monte-Carlo will reveal their new productions
at the Grimaldi Forum. During this bustling period, when Monaco
takes centre stage, the intention is to appeal to all those who have
come to discover and nourish their passion for the arts, whether
they are novices, onlookers or experienced art-lovers.

enthusiasm, MONACO ART WEEK is keen to be considered as one
of the most attractive events in the Monegasque cultural calendar.
Visitors will easily be able to find their way around the Principality
