What is the Fiac?
During the third week of October, each year, seasoned professional, collectors and art buffs flock to Paris for the FIAC, the Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain or International Contemporary Art Fair (October 20 to 23, 2016).
The 43rd edition will take place from October 20, through October 23, 2016.
The Grand Palais is the main venue and will be showcasing 180 galleries from 27 countries. But the FIAC has built a major programme entitled Hors les Murs (Outside the Walls) which will display large-scale works, installations, and sound pieces in three publicly accessible sites : the Jardins des Tuileries, the Place Vendome and the Musée National Eugène Delacroix
The FIAC is also the occasion for an artist residing in France, or of French origin, to be awarded the prestigious Marcel Duchamp Prize, which brings with it international recognition.
The most exciting addition to this year’s edition has just been announced: the new performance festival Parades for FIAC, aimed at highlighting the role of music, dance, performance, and poetry in the role of contemporary art.
