FIAC / Art Elysées / FIAC "Hors les Murs" Weekend of October 20th
FIAC Foire Internationale d'Art Contemporain from October 20th to 23rd
The FIAC, the contemporary art fair, has solidified its position in the art world in recent years, bringing together a high-profile mix of contemporary art collectors, museum curators and international dealers, and winning international recognition through a rigorous selection process. This year’s fair, which runs from Thursday to Sunday at the Grand Palais and other venues in the capital, features 191 exhibitors, 3440 artists in its main venue, the Grand Palais.
The FIAC also has an outdoor programming called “Hors les Murs” (Beyond the Walls) to make the fair accessible to a wider audience. That program, which was started in 2006, includes performances, solo shows, conferences and films made by established or emerging artists. The Tuileries Gardens and the Place Vendôme are being turned into exhibition spaces. Students from the Ecole du Louvre will be in the Tuileries Gardens to answer questions about the art pieces every day from 3pm to 5:30pm.
We took a stroll in the Tuileries Gardens and Place Vendome and captured some of the art pieces.
