Monaco Art Week explores Local Culture with a Walking Trail

The sixth edition of Monaco Art Week (MAW) is taking place from 2 to 7 July 2024 and will be punctuated by unique exhibitions across a few dozen galleries and auction houses. The event’s art trail will take visitors through cultural hubs in different areas of the Principality: Condamine, Monte-Carlo and Larvotto. The exciting format facilitates access to exhibitions, encouraging everyone to explore Monaco’s cultural landscape.

Born in the spring of 2018, Monaco Art Week was created from the desire to unite Monaco’s cultural institutions by organizing an event that showcases the local art scene. Thirty-four establishments will be participating in this year’s event, including Artcurial, Sotheby’s, the Comité National Monegasque, Espace 22, the Opera Gallery and many more. Here are three highlights from this year’s MAW program.
