A reflective disc by Anish Kapoor crowns the historic Place du Casino. A señora by Valdés turns her back to the sea. Walking through the streets of Monaco is a treasure hunt for internationally acclaimed contemporary art, with hidden jewels popping up in the Jardins Exotiques, Casino gardens and even on thoroughfare meridians. The Nouveau Musée Nationale de Monaco is a contemporary art museum that hosts temporary exhibits in two turn-of-the-last-century mansions, displaying innovative works by names like Gilbert & George, Kees von Dongen, and Marc-Camille Chaimowicz.
