In 2021, the art fair is presenting an even more exclusive and original format with a selection of prestigious contemporary galleries including Hauser & Wirth, Pace, White Cube, kamel mennour, Perrotin, Air de Paris, Almine Rech, Esther Schipper, Galerie kreo and Carpenters Workshop, but also modern and ancient art dealers such as Dickinson, Waddington Custot, Mazzoleni, Thomas Gibson Fine Art, Robilant + Voena and even Moretti Fine Art. Beyond the stands, the public will be able to discover outdoor sculptures by Xavier Veilhan and Bertrand Lavier on the Esplanade of the Grimaldi Forum.

Première International Art Show on Côte d’Azur 

The show has established itself over the years as the main international artistic event on the Côte d’Azur. artmonte-carlo is established following the success of artgenève, whose 10th edition will be celebrated at the end of January 2022 at Palexpo Geneva.

artmonte-carlo has the privilege of being one of the first art fairs to be held in Europe, in the context of particularly rich artistic activity this summer on the Côte d’Azur: including a major retrospective of Alberto Giacometti at the Grimaldi Forum, without forgetting the exhibitions at the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco (NMNM), at the Mamac, at the Fondation Maeght, at the Villa Arson and at the new Fondation CAB Saint-Paul de Vence.
