The Lafayette Sector, a program launched in 2009 by FIAC and the Groupe Galeries Lafayette, Official Sponsor, underlines their joint desire to provide tangible support to the actors of the emerging art scene in its international dimension. The Lafayette Sector provides financial support to ten French and international galleries presenting emerging artists. The 2015 jury was formed by Guillaume Houzé (Director of Patronage of the Groupe Galeries Lafayette), Florence Bonnefous (Air de Paris, Paris), François Quintin (Fondation d’entreprise Galeries Lafayette), María Inés Rodríguez (CAPC / musée d’art contemporain, Bordeaux) and Francesco Stocchi (Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam).

Never before FIAC has presented such an outstanding selection of renowned French and international galleries.

Hors les Murs programs
FIAC underlines the defining principles of its identity: the undisputed quality of its exhibitors and the works on view, the unrivalled beauty and prestige of its venues located in the heart of Paris and its signature Hors les Murs programs.

In association with the Domaine National du Louvre et des Tuileries, an ensemble of outdoor works will be presented in the Tuileries Garden.

An outdoor exhibition focusing on themes such as nature, biodiversity and the environment will be held in the Jardin des Plantes and the Museum national d’Histoire naturelle. This year, on the occasion of COP21 the United Nations Climate Change Conference, hosted by France, artworks will be exhibited until mid-December 2015.

In collaboration with the Comité Vendôme, monumental outdoor sculptures or installations will be presented on the prestigious Place Vendôme.

Underscoring FIAC’s presence in venues situated along the Seine river and in collaboration with the city of Paris, outdoor works will be installed along the left bank riverside promenade “les Berges de Seine” between the Pont Alexandre III and the Pont Léopold Sédar Senghor. This year, in collaboration with Radio France, sound installations will be exhibited in the Maison de la Radio.

Artist’s films will be presented at the Auditorium of the Grand Palais and—in association with the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard—the Cinéphemère installed in the Tuileries Gardens.

“Carte Blanche” invitations will be extended to artists for evening programs at the Silencio nightclub designed by David Lynch which may involve film projections, concerts, performances, book signings and/or artists’ talks.

FIAC pursues its ongoing programs of artists’ performances, Ouvertures/Openings, conceived and produced in collaboration with the Auditorium of the Louvre Museum, and In Process, a performance programme dedicated to the emergent contemporary art scene and curated by Mehdi Brit and Blanche de Lestrange.

Lastly, FIAC, in association with the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris and the Maison de la Poésie, presents Voices of Urgency, a cycle of seminars and discussions relating to poetry and the social sciences, held at the Chapelle des Petits-Augustins and conceived by Alex Cecchetti. A new program of performances presenting young artists, alumni of the Beaux-Arts, will be held in the Rez-de-Seine of the Cité de la Mode et du Design.

The second edition of OFFICIELLE, will be held in Paris from Wednesday, October 21 to Sunday, October 25 at the Docks – Cité de la Mode et du Design and in its different Hors les Murs sites, presented in conjunction with FIAC. The vernissage will take place on Tuesday, October 20.

The event will host approximately seventy French and international galleries specializing in contemporary and emerging art. OFFICIELLE will showcase new territories: young galleries and newcomers to the international art scene; emerging artists and those whose historic contribution has been overlooked.
