Art, Culture & Solidarity

From 10 March, art, culture and solidarity will be the focus of exhibitions, panel discussions and other activities...

Many of the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer's establishments are Green Globe certified, and the Resort is working to be one of the first to obtain this certification in its own right.

The Ambassador - Pierre Frolla

World record holder, extreme diver, educator, adventurer, underwater cameraman, lecturer, coach...

The director of the Académie Monégasque de la Mer likes to pass on his knowledge, his values and his passion.

For 'The Sea is Green', Pierre Frolla will accompany Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer as a figure who exemplifies the values of the group that will be highlighted during this period.

The Artist - Jean Boghossian 

A key player in the 'The Sea is Green' programming is Jean Boghossian, an abstract multidisciplinary artist whose works all bear, to varying degrees, traces of degradation by burning. Through the process of deliberate damage and the use of a blowtorch instead of a brush, Boghossian raises the question of what it means to create inextinguishable art with an invasive and violent, yet poetic method. 

From 10 March to 10 May, see an exhibition that pays tribute to 'The Sea is Green' installed in the gardens and urban spaces of Monte-Carlo. Discover this work in different places: on the lawn of the Jardins des Boulingrins where, on 11 pillars, aluminium and steel sails will be hung. They will be worked with smoke and paint. At One Monte Carlo, the sails will be mobile and again worked with smoke, fire and paint. They will move around several pylons.

From 10 March et 10 May, enjoy another Jean Boghossian exhibition, this time of marine ceramics, at the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo. The 'Hôtel des Connoisseurs' will display 20 to 30 exceptional ceramic shells in the lobby, the main corridor and the Winter Garden under the Eiffel dome.

'La Valse des Méduses' Exhibition 

This art installation, created by Céline Pagès and Madame Ernest, is housed in the Atrium of the Casino de Monte-Carlo and offers an immersive experience using recycled materials. The customer's journey is enriched by the curiosity of movement and the effects of transparency obtained thanks to the light of the glass roof. As for green, the dominant colour of the installation, its hues are symbols of luck!

The dome of the largest jellyfish opens and closes in a swimming motion and this movement spreads naturally to the filaments. The impulse is caused by a metal structure and small individual motorizations. No less than 9 jellyfish will be animated at a height of 5 metres. Opposite the jellyfish, the space on the ground is occupied by 4 gorgons, each representing a suit in deck of cards: spades, clubs, diamonds and hearts, daily from 12pm from 10 March to 10 May 2023.
