The Monaco Masters Show 2022

08 July - 31 August 2022

Opera Gallery is pleased to present again this year, under the High Patronage of his Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, the Monaco Masters Show. This exhibition features works from Post-war and Contemporary artists each year. This exhibition reinvents a dialogue between paintings, works on paper and sculptures from different places, periods and artistic movements. It celebrates the spirit and genius of nearly thirty artists whose creative and innovative works have shaped the world of art and culture for almost a century. From 8 July to 31 August 2022, we invite you to delve into the heart of Marc Chagall’s onirism, Pablo Picasso’s Cubism or Fernand Léger’s tubism. You are also welcome to contemplate the lyricism of Georges Mathieu, the abstractions of Hans Hartung and the play on light of Pierre Soulages. On view, there will also be works by the spatialist Lucio Fontana, the creator of Art Brut, Jean Dubuffet and Karel Appel, one of the pioneers of CoBrA. They all embodied a part of modernity and Avant-Garde. Works by established contemporary artists will also be exhibited, such as Kenny Scharf’s tags, Mel Bochner’s lettering, Manolo Valdés’ meninas and Yayoi Kusama’s dots. The Monaco Masters Show 2022 is a tribute to the great masters of Modern and Contemporary art.
