During the Grand Prix, from the 26-28 May 2023 there are lots of parties organized in Monaco, and one of them is the SUNSET, the unmissable beach party that attracts the most eclectic International crowd.

For three consecutive spectacular days, from noon to midnight, people of all ages come together in a relaxed yet wild atmosphere, on the Meriden Beach Plaza’s private beach.

Set somewhere between a festival and a luxury champagne beach bar, SUNSET has created a genre of its own, unlike any beach party in this world. This is a completely unique place on this planet, where the sun and the earth come together to radiate in a spirit of friendliness and artistic creativity.

A nirvana for the senses, as much thanks to the beauty of the people that attend and the breathtaking location, as for the incredible music line-up and theatrical shows that surprise us throughout its duration.

Nouveau Musée National de Monaco invites you to see its new exhibition “George Condo – Humanoids” open from Friday 31 March to Sunday 1 October 2023, in Nouveau Musée National de Monaco – Villa Paloma.

For George Condo, “the Humanoid is not a science fiction monster, but a depiction that uses traditional methods to bring a person’s inner emotions to the surface”. Over the course of eight sections, the exhibition traces the continuity of a profuse body of work that ranges from “space beings” to Who’s Who, from Guido Reni to Bugs Bunny. Featuring specially produced paintings, the exhibition offers a glimpse of the artist’s process of invention – as crazy as it is erudite – of humanoids.

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