The Dog Show will be held under the aegis of the Société Canine de Monaco — Monaco Kennel Club (member of the Fédération Cynologique Internationale, FCI) chaired by Mélanie-Antoinette de Massy (former vice-president).
Not by chance, Monaco International Dog Show is grounded in the history of the Principality, being founded in 1927 by H.S.H.

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.
