Former artist studio ideally located on the Avenue Princesse Grace, alongside the Villa Sauber and the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco Modern’Art gallery mainly represents the artists Philippe Pastor and MARCELLINE LAPOUFFE and is particularly active supporting environmental projects.
The work of Philippe Pastor and MARCELLINE LAPOUFFE illustrate very different facets of today’s world. If Philippe Pastor engages his creations towards a reflection on Nature and the role of Man, MARCELLINE LAPOUFFE plays with death and explores eccentric universes coated with strass.
Monaco Modern’Art has supported Philippe Pastor’s career, specialy during his participation in the 52nd and 53rd Venice Biennales. The gallery has participated in most of its publications and is regularly collaborating with the Association Art and Environment, created by the artist in 2007. It has organized many touring exhibitions of The Burned Trees project and is ensuring the maintenance of permanent installations.
The gallery supports and shares Philippe Pastor’s commitment to environmental protection. Expanding the boundaries of contemporary art, it punctually opens spaces for collaborations, with other galleries or to support other institutions and events that are part of its approach. This is how the gallery worked with the United Nations during the “Plant for the Planet” Campaign in 2007-2008, and hosted, in 2015, an exhibition of the Monaco Pavilion at the Universal Exhibition in Milan to promote the Principality’s project, that was conceived with an eco-sustainable approach.
