Contemporary art this autumn in Paris

The arrival of autumn means the latest edition of FIAC, the International Fair of Contemporary Art. The event is a must for gallery owners as well as for fans of the latest artistic trends. Plan a visit and enjoy a memorable day under the magnificent glass roof of the Grand Palais!


New locations for FIAC

For its 44th edition, the International Fair of Contemporary Art utilises the superb spaces within the Grand Palais where 193 galleries will show the work of the artists they represent. The Lafayette sector brings together around ten of the newer galleries and you can expect some innovative and promising choices. Additionally, FIAC will take over the nearby Petit Palais site for the second year in a row for its 'On Site' section and you'll be able to view about forty notable works in an original and majestic setting. Finally, thanks to the success of this popular event, several of the city's most iconic places will participate in 'FIAC - outside the walls'. For example, the elegant classic symmetry of the Place Vendome provides a wonderful backdrop to the works of Oscar Tuazon. Prepare to embark on a surprising artistic journey!
