Tickets are available here.
The 44th FIAC, one of the world’s leading art fairs, will be held in Paris from Thursday, October 19 to Sunday, October 22, 2017, in the historical Parisian venue, the Grand Palais. The vernissage will take place on Wednesday, October 18.
The fair will present 193 of the world’s most prestigious modern and contemporary art galleries from 30 countries. They 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.
Beginning in 2004, FIAC was the first art fair in the world to feature a design sector. We are happy to announce the return of design to the fair this year, with the presence of five of the leading French galleries in the field: Jousse Entreprise, Galerie kreo, LAFFANOUR – Galerie Downtown, Eric Philippe, and Galerie Patrick Seguin.
Among its participants, FIAC is also pleased to present a selection of galleries specialized in edition.
FIAC and its official partner, the Galeries Lafayette Group, renew their support for the emerging art
scene with the highly reputed Lafayette Sector. Conceived by the Galeries Lafayette and FIAC, this programme will bring together 10 galleries selected for the high quality of their prospective exhibition programmes, and on the basis of a specific project featuring one or two artists.
