Return of foreign guests
“We can be delighted with this result, which is 10% more than last year with Giacometti, despite the fact that this year’s exhibition is very short compared to usual due to the business travel calendar starting again very early in September,” said Silvie Biancheri, CEO of the Grimaldi Forum.
Francesco Grossali, CEO of CMB Monaco, an official and long-standing partner of the Grimaldi Forum, said: “This exhibition was full of elegance and originality. Our customers and potential customers, who are big fans of creativity and innovation, were very enthusiastic about it. Its quality reflects our ambitions in terms of sponsorship, to contribute more and better to the cultural influence of the Principality!”
Therefore, it is a very positive result for this exhibition, which gathered visitors from all over the world: from France and Monaco, of course, but also from Great Britain, Italy and the United States, marking a great return of international customers after two difficult years due to the pandemic.
Save the date in your calendar now: next summer’s exhibition at the Grimaldi Forum (in 2023) will be dedicated to the impressionist painter Claude Monet, where around a hundred of the artist’s paintings will be brought together thanks to a significant loan from Monet’s Musée Marmottan and the support of international public and private collections.
In 2024, the artist William Turner and several contemporary artists inspired by his work will be celebrated through collections from the famous Tate Gallery.
