47th FIAC (Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain) – International Contemporary Art Fair
The 47th FIAC will be held in Paris from Thursday, October 22 to Sunday, October 25, 2020 in the Grand Palais. The vernissage will take place on Wednesday, October 21.
FIAC Galleries—Grand Palais—General Sector & Lafayette Sector
FIAC's General Sector will feature some 190 galleries specializing in modern and contemporary art presenting a balanced panorama of artistic creation from modern masters to the most emerging trends. Galleries will be deployed in the exceptional spaces of the Grand Palais: the Nave on the ground floor together with the Upper Galleries on the first floor. The Galeries Nationales, located on the ground floor with direct access to the Nave, will also house booths.
The Lafayette Sector, a programme launched in 2009 by FIAC and the Groupe Galeries Lafayette, Official Sponsor, is designed to showcase galleries of the younger generation. The Lafayette Sector provides significant funding for a group of ten galleries, founded in 2010 or after. They are selected by an independent jury on the basis of the quality of their year-round exhibition programmes and a project specially conceived for FIAC 2020 presenting one or two emerging artists.
FIAC Projects—Petit Palais & Avenue Winston Churchill
FIAC Projects allows exhibitors to present artworks in exceptional conditions in direct proximity to their booths, both inside the Petit Palais and on the Avenue Winston Churchill, pedestrianized during FIAC week. Every year, the ensemble creates an unprecedented platform to exhibit artworks within an historic museum context.
FIAC Hors les Murs—Jardin des Tuileries, Musée Delacroix, Place Vendôme & Place de la Concorde
FIAC Hors les Murs is an exhibition of outdoor artworks presenting sculptures and installations to the widest possible audience in emblematic public spaces throughout the city. Providing a unique opportunity for artists to enter into a dialogue with Parisian heritage sites, the programme encourages increased knowledge and favors ease of access to contemporary creation at its best.
FIAC Hors les Murs is housed in prestigious Parisian venues including the Jardin des Tuileries, the Place de la Concorde, the musée national Eugène Delacroix and the Place Vendôme.
