JENNIFER BAILEY. b/ 1984. In 2011 Bailey founded 1994, a small publishing imprint.
CÔME CIMENT. Chimneys, clouds and grey-coloured raw materials (like chrome or ciment) have recurred as tools in his projects. Two different kinds of forces and fluxes are brought inside Monaco 3: magnets and news.
ROSIE COOPER and ARIELLA YEDGAR are curators who live in London. Their contribution to Monaco 3 is an advertisement for a fantasy exhibition at the Hackney Emprire, London – an extension of a real project they are presenting at Cartel, London, in 2011, and Montehermoso, Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain, in 2012.
SOFIA COPPOLA lists cartoon characters, snow and mise-en-abymes as materials used in her work. For Monaco 3 she has contributed a fold-out double page spread describing what should happen when snow falls.
JENIFER EVANS is an artist and writer in Cairo, who has been involved in making installation, painting, sculpture, video and books. She is working on a series of wearable art, a translation project and a sculpture garden.
WILL FRENCH was born in Melbourne in 1981 and spent much of his childhood in Indonesia and Korea. Based out of Sydney, Australia, French has been on the road since early 2010 working in New York, Tokyo, Berlin and now Paris. Embracing the certainty that the only constant is change, his work follows the threads of his shifting interests. Addressing the personal, popular, and political his work spans traditional, mechanical and conceptual manifestations, which are often presented with a wry humour. www.willfrench.com.au

KATHY NOBLE is a writer and curator living in London.
EDDIE PEAKE (born 1981) lives and works in London, where he has exhibited widely. His work encompasses many different media and his website is www.eddiepeake.com. Solo exhibitions include 'Double Negative', Christopher Crescent, London (2011); 'History', Lorcan O'Neill Streetview project, Rome (2010); 'Ladies', Parade, London (2008); 'The Caspar Erasmus School of Art', The Hex, London (2007). He has a forthcoming show at Southard Reid in September 2011.
PAUL SIMON RICHARDS is an artist who lives and works in London. His work (which takes various forms including film, objects and text) has recently tended to talk quite sensitively about the way that men deal with (or don't deal with) conflict – with particular focus on the way that men approach the micromanagement of things which lead up to the revealing of anger. Furthermore his work often refers to elements, objets and forces, which are slightly out of reach. Richards is currently undertaking research for two film projects, one which looks at the writing or 'booking' of professional wrestling and the other which involves bullying and Nigerian cinema.
PATRICK SHIER graduated from Central St Martins in 2006. His work includes video, performance and sculpture, often appropriating elements from cinema and popular music. Patrick co-curated 'Epic' at Auto-Italia (2008) and 'After Hours', an evening of screenings at Paradise Row, Upper Brook Street (2009). He had a solo exhibition, 'Prêt-a-Porter', at 79a Brick Lane (2008), and has shown work in the group exhibitions 'For One Night Only' at Auto-Italia (2007), 'The Dark Show' at the Wallis Gallery, FormContent and Paradise Row (2008-9), 'Yes Way' at Auto-Italia (2009), 'Menu' at the Savoy Café (2009) and 'Melrose Place' at the James Taylor Gallery (2009). Hi work was also featured in The Book of the Film published by Jennifer Bailey (2009), and two previous issues of Monaco.
GORDON SHRIGLEY is an artist who lives and works in London and is represented by IMT Gallery.
GIORGIO SILVERIO has created a solution for the flooring of a large-scale exhibition, which deals with the notion of the retrospective, and ways in which to present past and future works together. Although he, Côme Ciment and Sofia Coppola had never collaborated before, they agreed to present their individual contributions to Monaco 3 in a similar form, and each contribution addresses a different force or flux: magnetism, bouncing and glowing.
CHARLES VEYRON was born in 1982 in Paris.
JESSICA WIESNER is an artist who lives and works in London. Her exhibition, 'Ever-Changing Moods', a collaboration with Rachal Bradley, is at Auto-Italia South East until 31 July 2011.
