FIAC 2015 in Paris

October 8, 2015 | By Nicole Birmann

FIAC - the Paris Contemporary Art Fair - is back, and bigger and better than ever! For the 42nd edition of this international arts scene mainstay, the festival has reached for new heights, reflected in the impressive number of galleries represented: a total of 175 from 23 countries will be displaying their artists' work in the Grand Palais in Paris. 

A favorite feature of FIAC is Hors Les Murs, a program of arts events taking place outside of the Grand Palais, in the timelessly beautiful settings of the Jardin des Tuileries, the Jardin des Plantes, and the Place Vendôme. Here, visitors can stroll, free of charge, and take in a diverse array of works by artists from around the world. 

OFFICIELLE is an associated arts fair, distinguished by its favoring of up-and-coming artists, as opposed to established figures. OFFICIELLE takes place on the docks of the Cité de la Mode et du Design, and this year will offer Batobus shuttles between the Cité and the other FIAC locations. 

This is a truly legendary arts festival, and if you find yourself in Paris, is an absolute must-see!
