An exhibition of filmed portraits taken in Monaco by French photographer Charles Fréger, organised and produced by Monaco’s Department of Cultural Affairs, is on display at the Quai Antoine I Exhibition Hall until 3 January 2021.

The exhibition came about in the unique context of the period during which lockdown measures were eased. The artist casts his eye over Monaco and some of the various groups and communities that make up the country’s identity. Working people, athletes, schoolchildren and artists were filmed at a time when social distancing had become the norm. Charles Fréger opted to focus on moving images, thereby bringing his subjects closer to the audience.

“The portraits, projected in enormous scale onto a 26-metre-long wall, are, for the first time in Charles Fréger’s work, more like an installation than an exhibition of photographs,” explains Björn Dahlström, the exhibition’s curator.

Free entry, Tuesday to Sunday, 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. (closed on 25 December 2020 and 1 January 2021).
