The best tips from the editorial team for keeping busy in the Principality and the surrounding area!
“Terra di mare”: the Mediterranean in a new light
If you haven’t seen it yet, why not start the month with the “Terra di mare” exhibition, which opened on 22 September at Monaco Monte Carlo train station?
A total of 11 images by the self-taught Sicilian photographer Gilles Cappadoro can be seen. The artist has chosen to pay tribute to the Mediterranean by eschewing colour, in particular blue, and using only green-grey tones. A surprising exhibition, which can be visited free of charge until 18 November, in the space giving on to the parvis Sainte-Dévote.
Roni Horn’s sensual exhibition
Another exhibition that has just opened is ‘Sweet is the Swamp with its Secrets’ in the Hauser & Wirth gallery. Come and see pictures by the American photographer Roni Horn, who explores desire and sexuality through a series of portraits, self-portraits and sometimes phallic photos. The artist’s works are interspersed with six extracts from the film Persona, directed by Ingmar Bergman in 1966, projected onto the walls, to highlight Roni Horn’s work from a cinematographic angle. The exhibition will remain in place until 17 December.
- Gallery open to the public from Tuesday to Saturday, 10 am to 6 pm
