Conceived by Célia Bernasconi, Exhibition Curator, Chief Curator at the NMNM, the exhibition brings together contemporary works by seventeen living artists, including nine women, of twelve different nationalities. All of them have in common that they respond to the definition of the thought of trembling which, in the words of the poet Édouard Glissant, “unites us in absolute diversity, in a whirlwind of encounters”.

Video installations, sculptures, paintings, photographs, translate the tremors of the world.

Exhibition "Monaco – Alexandria, The Great Detour. World-Capitals and Cosmopolitan Surrealism"

A new exhibition just opened in the Principality. Monaco – Alexandria, The Great Detour. World-Capitals and Cosmopolitan Surrealism from Friday 17 December 2021 to Monday 2 May 2022, in Nouveau Musée National de Monaco – Villa Sauber.

Monaco-Alexandria presents itself as an emancipated exhibition from the spectrum of nationalist and Eurocentric art history. It is remarkable in this respect to depart from Monaco and its Nouveau Musée National to rethink North-South relations, in particular between key areas of Mediterranean Europe, including in its African and Eastern dimensions.

In this perspective, the NMNM in collaboration with Zamân Books & Curating, aims to create a dialogue between Monaco and Alexandria, namely two world-capitals with eloquent and yet little-known relations, woven in the heart of the 20th century, through transnational themes: ballets and (post)orientalist shows, southern surrealism, flora and fauna, feminist eroticism, urban development and nightlife; ultimately, the symbols and the poetics of cosmopolitanism through two great Mediterranean crossroads; both marked by the imprint of dreams and tourist mythologies as by that of the avant-garde in exile. Beyond the major themes explored, the exhibition + books aim at writing an unprecedented page in this connected and often French-speaking history, although shaped between several contact zone (Monaco, France, Italy, Hungary, Greece, Egypt, etc.)

Of course there are other interesting events taking place in Monaco. If you want to learn more about them visit our Calendar.
