Sport - "Tour de France in Monaco"
Sunday 21 July 2024, Principality of Monaco
Final stage of the Tour de France 2024 between Monaco and Nice. Motor sports fans will be familiar with the first few corners of this time-trial in the streets of the Principality, with the riders set to follow the same route as the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Once past the Rock, they will then make their way up to La Turbie before clearing another pass, the Col d'Eze, in the last difficult section of this year's Tour. Finally, they will have to nimbly negotiate the descent towards Nice on their way to the finish line on the Promenade des Anglais, completing what promises to be a spectacular 111th Tour de France.

The collective exhibition CONCRETE BEACHES, ARTIFICIAL LANDSCAPES is based on a hypothetical scenario. Abstract, metaphysical, uncertain. Visitors should approach it like a fictional tale, one to which everyone can bring their own vision of a shared future. Every piece and object serve to animate those imagined futures, some of which may already have come to pass. Inspired by the flamboyant dreams from the first collection of short stories by J.G. Ballard, Vermilion Sands (1973), the exhibition uses hybrid storytelling to stimulate the imagination.
