For its 6th issue, the Point Art Monaco showroom changed its name, at the behest of its organizing committee, in favor of the name of a specialized show on the French Riviera in which different industries are grouped together under a single title "The Monaco European Art Show". Having taken up the torch of the Monaco Antique Biennial, the event aims to bring together the world’s best exhibitors in ancient and modern art, objects and collectibles, and fine jewelry with the renewed participation of the Jewels of the World.
What Will This Name-Change Bring to the 2016 Edition?
Heir to the Monaco Antique Biennial founded in 1975, the Point Art Monaco showroom is evolving this year with a new name. This change is meant to be a sign of progress and an increase in notoriety. Open to all art lovers, the Monaco European Art Show wishes to maximize its reputation and develop its brand image, just like the most important cultural events which traditionally take place in Monaco. At the heart of artistic activity in the Riviera, the Monaco European Art Show wants to promote the best of what humanity has created in the world of art, era notwithstanding. Whether ancient or modern art, drawings, paintings, sculptures or jewelry, rare or collection items, our show’s goal is to focus more than ever on an offer as selective as it is prestigious, overseen by the largest international collectors and museums. In addition, the Monaco European Art Show will have the privilege to take place this summer at the same time as the highly anticipated exhibition on Francis Bacon at the Grimaldi Forum.
What Are the Means Used to Benefit Your New Formula?
With some thirty exhibitors handpicked last year, the Monaco European Art Show manifests, as always, the ambition of refocusing its general program on the best traders in the world, having built a very solid reputation in the field of ancient and modern art, objects and collection items, but also in fine jewelry with renewed participation from the Jewels of the World. In management, the Monaco European Art Show is also pleased to announce the appointment of its new director, Mr. Renaud Siegmann, who has been historian and art critic for over twenty years. In the name of originality, the Monaco European Art Show has also adopted a new visual identity and new channels of communication in the areas of prestige and excellence. Finally, the Monaco European Art Show wishes to acknowledge the quality of its partnership with the Grimaldi Forum, their exceptional ability to host as well as their press office which oversees its media relations to all audiences.
