Initiated by artgenève under the High Patronage of S.A.S. Prince Albert II de Monaco and direction of Thomas Hug, artmonte-carlo will be held for the 7th time this year at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. artmonte-carlo, a unique platform on the French Riviera, will bring together a prestigious selection of international contemporary art galleries including Hauser & Wirth, White Cube, Perrotin, Air de Paris, Almine Rech, Mennour, Franco Noero and Esther Schipper as well as modern and antique art dealers such as Vedovi, Robilant+Voena, Van de Weghe and Moretti Ward.
