FIAC is officially cancelled! After 46 editions, the International Contemporary Art show in Paris will not take place in October 2020 at the GRand Palais. The organizing committee has just confirmed there will be no works set in the Tuileries garden, the Petit Palais and the Place Vendôme. Next edition in 2021.
FIAC is a major Fall event for contemporary art fans. For 4 days, about 200 galleries take over the Grand Palais in October for the great International Contemporary Art Show.
Gallery owners come and present the best of their works on sale in a major event, but for a few years, this event is also the occasion for a great week devoted to contemporary art in Paris. Museums, galleries and even public squares, art is every and open to all.
Every year, the FIAC brings the whole world around art galleries from twenty countries to present the trendiest artists and emerging artists exhibiting in their galleries.
FIAC is one of the most important events for the international art scene. The fair allows to see a big picture of modern art, contemporary art and emerging creation in a rare setting of the French capital: the Grand Palais. The next edition is scheduled from October 21 to 24, 2020 at the temporary Grand Palais of the Champ-de-Mars.
This is what happened at the FIAC 2019 in Paris:
