The BOTOX(S) free contemporary art festival comes to Monaco
From 23 - 25 September, visit numerous museums and galleries in Monaco free of charge during the 'Visiteurs du Soir' nocturnal art festival.
No, this isn't something injected in your face. BOTOX(S) is a contemporary art network across the French Riviera. Together, museums, art galleries and cultural spaces have a platform to work together, promote each other and gain visibility. BOTOX(S)' main event, Les Visiteurs du Soir, used to only exist in Nice, in the spring. For 2022, the collective has expanded into a festival that extends over its entire territory (Alpes-Maritimes, Monaco, Alpes de Haute-Provence, Hautes-Alpes and the Italian border) and will now take place every season, each edition in a different territory.
The development of this FREE itinerary beyond Nice offers everyone in the region the possibility to visit an exhibition, to discover an artist's studio and to benefit from a guided tour in all the programmed places.
In each gallery, museum, art school or alternative place visited, the public will benefit from explanations and insights on the works of art discovered, thanks to the directors of the places, the artists and/or the curators.
