On the other hand Monte-Carlo Spring Arts Festival is coming to an end. This weekend you can enjoy a harpsichord concert with Olivier Baumont on Saturday 10 April 2021, at 2:30 pm, in Oceanographic Museum of Monaco.

Olivier Baumont, one of today’s great harpsichordists, plays the delicate, ornate pieces of the Golden Age of Versailles to perfection. His program straddles two centuries of French music, from Molière’s time to the end of the Ancien Régime. The music dances and sings, with a play of colors and delicate poetry worthy of the paintings of Lebrun and Watteau. On the programme: Jacques Champion de Chambonnières, Louis Couperin, Jean-Philippe Rameau, François Couperin and Claude Balbastre.

Marginalia Inside the Comics Art Collections

A new exhibition opened recently in Monaco. Presented at the NMNM-Villa Sauber from April 1 to September 5, 2021, the exhibition Marginalia. Inside the Comics Arts Collections is an exploration of comic book art, a young art born at the same time as film and psychoanalysis, and which has frequently opted for marginality over convention, humour over academicism and counter-culture over received ideas.

Following Freud’s traumarbeit (dream-work) model, Marginalia. Inside the Comic Arts Collections invites visitors to discover over 350 works by some of the greatest comic book artists and honours the passion of those who find their work an endless source of fascination.

Marginalia are the small drawings located in the margins of Medieval manuscripts. Often secular, sometimes droll, always fascinating, they form a dialogue with the texts that they illuminate, explain or criticise and can be seen as the origins of comic books, a combination of drawing and writing which blossomed in the 20th century.

Of course there are other events taking place in Monaco. So if you want to learn more about them and exhibitions that are taking place in Monaco these days visit our Calendar.

So have fun and enjoy your weekend!
