The exhibition Looking Up…™ : Yinka Shonibare MBE will be the first of a series for rediscovering and bringing out those collections related to the history and development of performing arts in the Principality of Monaco.


With the contribution of Yinka Shonibare MBE, works have been selected for being a kind of Ariadne’s thread within the collections of the museum; a distortion and re-interpretation of history, notoriously of the European colonialist cultural heritage, which gives to Monaco that subtle irony characterizing a small visual arts ‘cultural révolution’ in the principality.
