By Ilaria Sismondini

Dear Followers, the 2021 season will be eventful, enchanting Monaco’s nightlife!

August 13, 2021 – MONTE-CARLO SPORTING SUMMER FESTIVAL – SALLE DES ÉTOILES – GIPSY KINGS FEAT – NICOLAS REYES – Immortal stars: children, grandchildren, brothers, cousins ​​… In the large family of the Montpellier-Arles group, we approach the stage as four decades. The Gipsy Kings have drawn their strength from two Gypsy families whose family trees are themselves very extensive. On the one hand there is the Reyes family, originally from Arles, with Nicolas, singer and leading figure of the historic channel Gipsy Kings, not to mention his brothers Patchaï, Canut, Pablo and André. On the other, there is the Baliardo family, rooted in Montpellier, with Tonino, the solo guitarist, and the brothers Diego and Paco. This family was also that of Manitas de Plata, whose real name is Ricardo Baliardo. The Gipsy Kings record two discs: Bamboléo and Djobi, Djoba. These albums are a huge success in France and around the world, it is the beginning of a long series. They sing in Spanish a mixture of flamenco, pop and various light songs such as Catalan rumba. Information: Minimum age: 7 years – Mail: ticket office@sbm.mc – Official site: http://www.gipsykings.com/ – Concert type: Dinner show – Doors open: 20:00 – Concert starts: from 22 : 30 – Dress Code: jacket mandatory – Car service – Obligation to wear a mask.

August 14, 2021 – MONTE-CARLO SPORTING SUMMER FESTIVAL – SALLE DES ÉTOILES – SISTER SLEDGE  – Formed in 1971, the group was initially made up of the four sisters Deborah, Joan, Kim and Kathy. Their career really took off two years later thanks to the title “Mama Never Told Me”. Curiously, it is in the UK that the public is initially enthusiastic and pushes the single into the top 20.  The group still experiences a period of stagnation and, while the four sisters are on the verge of abandoning everything, their record house entrusted them to Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers. Immediately, the pairing with Chic paid off and the life-saving song “The Freak” hit the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. However, their biggest hit will be “We Are Family” released in 1979, now considered a point of reference in the “Uptown Funk” era. For the first time, and a few months after Nile Rodgers & Chic took the stage at the Salle des Etoiles, it was Sister Sledge’s turn to take their seats behind the microphones on August 14 for the last concert. Information: Minimum age: 7 years – Mail: box office@sbm.mc – Official site: http://sistersledge.com/- Concert type: Dinner show – Doors open: 20:00 – Concert starts: from 22:30 – Dress Code: jacket mandatory – Car service – Obligation to wear a mask.

August 15, 2021, at 5 pm – CATHÉDRALE DE MONACO- 16TH INTERNATIONAL ORGAN FESTIVAL with Olivier Vernet and Cédric Meckler, organ performance for four hands, organised by the Department of Cultural Affairs

Until August 19, 2021 – GRIMALDI FORUM ESPACE INDIGO – EXHIBITION OF JEWELRY BY ARTISTS FROM PICASSO TO KOONS – THE DIANE VENET COLLECTION – Passionate about art, Diane VENET has bought her first artist’s jewel, a brooch by the painter Roy Lichtenstein , in New York in 1967. But it was her meeting with the sculptor Bernard Venet in 1985 that decided to set up, according to the encounters, preferences, and requests to artists, a collection dedicated to artist’s jewels . Diane Venet has gathered, in 30 years, a rich collection of over 230 artist’s jewels of which 180 will be exhibited for a month at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco. From Picasso to Jeff Koons, Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Stella, Niki de Saint-Phalle, Keith Haring or even Louise Bourgeois, Orlan, Miguel Chevalier… modern and contemporary, international and French artists will be represented. Who knows what is her favorite jewel of hers in this pantheon? Her jewelry collection is an integral part of her daily life, she never stopped wearing them. But exhibiting them and sharing a passion also makes perfect sense. The exhibition of these miniature masterpieces in international institutions since 2008 places them in the field of art. The jewel recreates the artist’s concerns in a reduced form or even the first idea, the concept, and is a preliminary step to any work.

The infinitely small meets the infinitely large. Diane Venet passionately endows each of her jewels with the status of a work of art. Proof of this is the fact that she likes to make “hers” miniatures of her dialogue with the sculptures of renowned artists: André Derain, Max Ernst, Frank Stella, Bernard Venet but here is the intimate gaze and commitment of a woman leading the exhibition. From the love of an artist to that of art, this collection is a tribute to the creation that Diane Venet reveals to us with modesty and talent. The visitor will thus meet another Giacometti, the one who experiences the limits of sculpture, and the formidable painter who practices, alongside the portrait, also the genres of landscape or still life. Pre-sale rate at € 6 until June 30th. Ticket office +377 99 99 30 00 or online: www.grimaldiforum.com

Thus, for example, the diffusion of the participants on the screen, both in mosaic and in full frame, is directly visible by the speaker or by the facilitator for whom the difficulty of the “weather map” technique no longer exists. Thanks to the axes of the real cameras, the view of the scenery changes with each change of frame, without virtual special effects. This new “premium” version has been included in the catalog of services offered by Studio TV by GFM for more than six months, in addition to its “standard” version.
