It’s Friday night, time to relax and make plans for the weekend. And while everyone is encouraged to avoid big gatherings of people there are still things you can do observing the rules.
Probably the main event of this weekend is the 21st Virtual No Finish Line from Saturday 14 November at 3 pm, to Sunday 22 November 2020 at 3 pm Principauté de Monaco.
This year, due to the Covid crisis, Children & Future, the association organizing the event, is introducing a special virtual dimension to the event. It will also go beyond the Monegasque borders and is setting itself the objective of covering 400,000km!
Run or walk in an outdoor location that you choose yourself individually. Do as many kilometers as you desire and do it as many times as you like. The more the merrier.
For each kilometer travelled Children & Future pledges to donate 1 euro to support projects in favour of sick or disadvantaged children.
A new exhibition is open in the Oceanographic Museum as part of its program of actions to raise awareness and support the protection of coral reefs. For the third time the Monegasque artist Michel Aubéry exhibits his works in the Oceanographic Museum from November 4, 2020 to February 3, 2021.
And in this year 2020 dedicated to coral, Michel Aubéry was inspired by coral reefs and the animals that live there.
Nearly 40 works are exhibited in the conference room of the Oceanographic Museum, including 20 for the first time. All are devoted to the marine world, the artist’s favorite subject. At the request of the Oceanographic Museum, he agreed to focus on the reef world to create new works in shimmering colors.
Another exhibition on the theme “Unstable Artifices: Ceramics Stories” is on till Sunday 31 January 2021, Nouveau Musée National de Monaco – Villa Sauber.
The exhibition Artifices instables, Stories of ceramics will present a journey through inventions and experiments highlighting the diversity of shapes and decorations of ceramics, as well as its production processes. These different stages of production – the selection and preparation of clay, the shaping, the finishing, the decoration, the cooking and the enamelling – reveal, also, the « recipes » and the almost alchemic preparations which vary from one creator/inventor to the other.
Organized by the Direction des Affaires Culturelles de Monaco, the exhibition of filmed portraits made in Monaco by the French photographer Charles Fréger, is presented until January 3, 2021 at the Exhibition Hall of Quai Antoine I.
The exhibition was created in the particular context of deconfinement. The artist looks at Monaco and the different groups or communities that make up the country’s identity. Workers, athletes, pupils and artists have been filmed at a time when social distancing has become the norm. He chose to favor the moving image thus creating a greater proximity between the model and his audience.
“The portraits thus projected, on a linear wall of 26 meters, relate, for the first time in the work of Charles Fréger, more to the installation than to the exhibition of photographs” specifies Björn Dahlström, the Curator of exhibition, about this project.
Free entry Tuesday to Sunday from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. (closed on December 25, 2020 and January 1, 2021).
