Galleries will be deployed in the exceptional spaces of the Grand Palais: the Nave on the ground floor together with the Salon d’honneur, the Salon Jean Perrin and the Upper Galleries on the first floor.
The Lafayette Sector, a programme launched in 2009 by FIAC and the Groupe Galeries Lafayette, Official Sponsor, is designed to showcase galleries of the young generation. The Lafayette Sector provides significant funding for a group of ten galleries, founded in 2008 or after, and selected by an independent jury on the basis of the quality of their exhibition programme and a project, including one or two emerging artists, proposed specifically for FIAC 2018.
Application forms are available for completion online and will be open until Tuesday, March 20.
