A philosophy graduate interested in critical theory, politics and art. Alias of Jelena Martinović.

Following the success of its first edition, artmonte-carlo is now returning for a second edition in order to expand the artistic platform on the Côte d’Azur. Taking place between April 29th and April 30th, the fair is at the very forefront of contemporary art, modern art and contemporary design, aiming to pay homage to the requirements of the region’s numerous collectors and art enthusiasts. The foundation of the second exhibition of contemporary art was inspired by gallery owners and art collectors who have experienced artgenève, strengthening the ties between Geneva and Monaco even further.

Bringing together a selection of works from leading international galleries, artmonte-carlo will provide a unique opportunity for collectors and art lovers to discover and re-discover exquisite work of art in a relaxing atmosphere. Further enhancing the collection with non-commercial exhibition program of the highest level, the fair is characterized by a unique configuration of diversity that opens up dialogues between different participants within the art world. This year, artmonte-carlo will bring together 74 local and international galleries, art institutions and art spaces. Distinguishing itself from the big conventional art fairs by its size and concept, artmonte-carlo perfectly reflects its environment.

The Special Art Exhibition in Monte Carlo, Monaco

In conjunction with the salon, artmonte-carlo organizes an exposition on a yacht in Monaco harbor. Titled This Is The Sea and curated by Mohammed Salemy, the exhibition is inspired by Hito Steyerl’s video Liquidity Inc, exploring several metaphoric imports of the concept of the sea. Artworks at this exhibition will connect the “undegroundedness” of the sea and its shifting and often unsettled surface to the political, technological and natural destabilization of our planet. Exploring financial, environmental and personal implication of the concept of liquidity, it tracks the aesthetics of the tumultuous storms of the 20th century, but it also looks critically at seasteading as the utopian project of the privileged class. The display that aims to extend the logic of the sea to the realm of contemporary art, This Is the Sea uses the spatial potentials of a floating yacht as a display and discursive space to set art free from the dependence on land. The exhibition will be on view at Yacht Big Mak, Monaco Harbour from Thursday, April 27th until Monday, May 1st.
