Grimaldi Forum

Tracking the Grace exhibit...

And the next stop after the Michener Museum in Doylestown is…
the Netherlands!

According to Visit Monaco, the exhibit will show at Het Loo Palace in Apeldoorn from 3 June to 26 October 2014. Those lucky Dutch!

Meanwhile, I am still pining for the opportunity to see the exhibit and puzzling at the fact that in its 6 years of travel, it will have only made one stop in the U.S. (October 28, 2013 - January 26, 2014)!

Anyhow, I find the exhibit’s statistics fascinating:

2007 - Monaco, Grimaldi Forum - 135,000 visitors
(The event holds the all-time record for visitor numbers at a Grimaldi Forum exhibition.)

2008 - Paris, Hôtel de Ville - 75,000 visitors

2008 - Moscow, Ekaterina Foundation - 65,000 visitors

2009/2010 - Rome, Palazzo Ruspoli - 34,000 visitors

2010 - London, Victoria & Albert Museum - 210,000 visitors
(This stop was the exhibit’s greatest public success.)

2011 - Sao Paulo, Armando Alvarez Penteado Foundation - 76,650 visitors

2011/2012 - Toronto, TIFF Bell Lightbox - 50,000 visitors

2012 - Bendigo, Australia, Bendigo Art Gallery - 153,000 visitors

2012 - Astana, Kazakhstan, Palace of Peace and Reconciliation - 15,000 visitors

2013 - Montreal, McCord Museum - 40,000 visitors

2013/2014 - Doylestown, Pennsylvania, James Michener Museum - to be determined…

Super Warhol

I visited this exhibition at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco in 2003. It was great - very comprehensive. When looking through stuff on the internet last night I found this - it’s done for the FashionTV Model Awards, but it shows some of the artworks and what the outside looks like. Good memories.

P.S The Grimaldi Forum has the poshest loos I have ever been in…

I'm in Monaco

I’m in Monaco

It’s my annual trip to Monaco for DISTREE and to hear “Oooh that’s nice to hear”, “Have fun” and my turn to say “Its work and I barely see anything of Monaco”. I still haven’t seen any of the interesting places like the palace or the gardens or any of that. It’s because I come here for an event and from the moment I land to the time I leave, I am working.

Don’t get me wrong the surroundings are…
