Gemlucart is an international contemporary art exhibition organized annually in support of cancer research. This year the theme All together (Tous unis) is the inspiration for the works of art, which include pieces by over seventy artists. The exhibition will be open to the public from 30 September to 15 October in the atrium of the Auditorium Rainier III, every day from 10am to 6pm.
Gemluc, the Group of Monaco Businesses in the Fight Against Cancer, was founded in 1973 by Princess Caroline with the hope that one day mankind will be able to wave goodbye to this terrible illness, which - despite the considerable progress realized in recent years - has become the main cause of death in many industrialized nations. To date, through events such as GemlucArt, the organization has raised over €1.58m to aid research, innovation and patient care.
Each artist exhibits a single original work which has not won any other prize or commendation in any other competition. The public will be invited to participate vote by placing slips of paper into urns. The winner of the GemlucArt prize will be exhibited for a fortnight next year in the Ribolzi Gallery The second will receive the public prize and the third place a special jury prize. All exhibited works will be bought or donated to the NMNM and part of the proceeds will go to Gemluc.
