The MONACO ART WEEK Association was conceived from a desire to unite the Monegasque cultural actors through their joint activities spread over different districts of the Principality. Specializing in ancient, modern and contemporary art, MONACO ART WEEK’s participants will work hand in hand to welcome the public to their spaces and help their discovery of various art periods. MONACO ART WEEK’s innovation lies in the dialogue between different artistic genres and movement covering nearly five centuries of artistic production.
The MONACO ART WEEK Association is a result of the desire to federate Monaco’s cultural institutions in an effort to organise joint actions that highlight and promote the Principality’s art scene.
The idea of MAW take its roots from a simple observation: it exists within the principality various actors, dynamic and active throughout the year, who participate in the cultural landscape of Monaco. The Principality of Monaco, although small, does not offer an “area of galleries” strictly speaking, since they are spread over different areas. It is therefore not always easy to go from one to the other. Through the MAW, we wanted to promote this local art scene, by creating an event at a key moment in the calendar, in order to contribute to the cultural influence of Monaco and to facilitate access to its cultural actors.
The second edition of MONACO ART WEEK is taking place from the 24th to 28th of April, 2019. Galleries and auction houses are teaming up for exhibitions and artistic rendez-vous in Monaco. Synergy and exchange are the core of these cultural events, which aim to highlight and promote Monaco’s art scene.

An artistic offer, rich and varied
The MAW has the particularity of covering all the periods within the history of art. Indeed, auction houses and galleries of ancient, modern or contemporary art are united within the MAW. Gathered around the same criteria: that of quality, each participant prepares for the occasion a special exhibition , in order to highlight his discipline, his artists and his history.
Facilitated access to cultural offers
During the event, a free shuttle service will be available for all visitors. The shuttles will provide uninterrupted transport, throughout the three main neighborhoods where the participants are located: Larvotto – Monte Carlo – Condamine. This system will ease access to exhibitions, encouraging the exploration of the Monegasque artistic landscape, while complementing the dynamic cultural offering throughout the city this time of the year with Monte-Carlo Spring Arts Festival, museum exhibitions, Ballets de Monte-Carlo’s latest creations, artmonte-carlo and PAD art fairs, as well as many prestigious auctions.
Create a sense of community
One of the founding motivations of the MAW is to go beyond the commercial connotation of an art week and to register as a strong artistic event, focused on cultural mediation. Each edition of the MAW is accompanied by a conference on a current topic related to the world of art, bringing together internationally renowned speakers.
