The Lafayette Sector, launched in 2009 by FIAC and the Groupe Galeries Lafayette, underlines their joint desire to provide financial support to French and international actors of the emerging art scene.
The 2018 Lafayette selection includes ten dynamic young galleries chosen on the basis of the quality of their exhibition programme and a project proposed specifically for FIAC. They are representative of the vitality of the rising generation and their commitment to the emerging art scene. Five countries are represented: Germany, USA, France, UK and Switzerland. The participants are: Lars Friedrich (Berlin), Queer Thoughts (New York) and Truth and Consequences (Genève) together with 7 exhibitors making their debut at FIAC: Arcadia Missa (London); Sandy Brown (Berlin); Document Space (Chicago); Jan Kaps (Köln); LOMEX (New York); Edouard Montassut (Paris); Bonny Poon (Paris).
Launched in 2016, FIAC Projects showcases an exhibition of artworks in the exceptional setting of the Petit Palais and on the Avenue Winston Churchill which will be transformed into a pedestrian zone for the duration of FIAC.
This year, Marc-Olivier Wahler (Director of the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University) is FIAC Project’s guest curator.
