“GRACE KELLY: From Hollywood to Monaco – Artists' Tributes” is co-organized by the Galaxy Entertainment Group Foundation and Grimaldi Forum of Monaco, one of a series of activities of “Art Macao”, a five-month mega international art cultural event.

The exhibition traces the story of Oscar-winning actress Grace Kelly (1929-1982), from her Hollywood days to becoming Princess of Monaco.

An important style icon of the 20th century, Grace Kelly is embodied with the myths of power and timelessness which explain the continuing interest and fascination people have of her. A star of Hollywood films in the 1950s, Grace Kelly became a princess in “old Europe”, joining a royal family with a history which dates back almost one thousand years.

Grace Kelly has continued to inspire artists throughout her life, from famous photographers to visual artists such as Andy Warhol, who portrayed her through his Pop Art prints. As an artists’ tributes exhibition, this show highlights her role as a muse, as well as her personal enthusiasm for artistic creation.

The exhibition is exceptional in many ways.  A temporary gallery was specially created for this exhibition to display collections from the Prince’s Palace of Monaco. The scenography was designed under the supervision of Dr Thomas Fouilleron, Curator of the exhibition and Director of Archives and Library of the Prince’s Palace of Monaco, allowing visitors to go through a journey which integrates history, heritage, fashion, and arts.
