FIAC 2011 (20 - 23 October 2011)
SimpleViewer requires Macromedia Flash. Get Macromedia Flash..

FIAC’s 38th edition will mark a further milestone in the fair’s evolution.

For the upcoming edition, all galleries exhibiting at FIAC will be located within the Grand Palais. Renovation work in the Louvre Museum’s exhibition galleries underneath the Cour Carrée will mean that the courtyard will be unavailable to receive the temporary pavilion that FIAC has built there over the last five years. In an exciting concomitant development, FIAC 2011 will inaugurate
additional historic spaces within the Grand Palais: three exhibition galleries situated on the upper level of this prestigious edifice along its southern, south-eastern and south-western facades. These majestic spaces – which have been closed for several decades and are therefore largely unknown, even to the specialized public - have now been restored to their original volumes and will be open for the first time on the occasion of this year’s fair. FIAC is indebted to the Grand Palais and its President, Jean-Paul Cluzel, whose untiring support and goodwill has made this much-anticipated move possible.

Deeply rooted in the centre of Paris, in prestigious venues emblematic of the city’s history and cultural life, FIAC is infused with the image of the City of Light, its allure and art de vivre,
the full breadth of its cultural timeline and the dynamism of its contemporary art scene. Simultaneously international and Parisian, FIAC has become a not-to-be-missed rendez-vous for art lovers and connoisseurs worldwide.

Conceived in a spirit of continuity, FIAC 2011 reaffirms the founding principles of its identity: a genuine synergy with the many institutions and actors of Parisian cultural life, a quest for ever
higher quality and greater artistic selectivity, and the broad focus that leads it to offer a balanced overview of modern, contemporary and emerging art.

Once again this year, FIAC underlines its receptivity to the diversity of artistic practices, as witnessed by the development of its Hors les Murs cultural programme with the enhancement of the outdoor projects in the Tuileries gardens, the inauguration of a new off-site exhibition at the Museum d’Histoire Naturelle Jardin des Plantes, an augmented performance programme and a reinforced cycle of films by artists presented in two venues, the Cinéphemère
2 inaugurated in 2010 and - for the first time - the Auditorium of the Grand Palais.

FIAC 2011 will bring together 168 galleries from 21 countries specializing in modern and contemporary art. France counts 55 galleries (33 percent of the exhibitors), followed by the United
States ( 26 galleries), Germany (21 galleries), Italy (13 galleries), Belgium (11 galleries), the United Kingdom (9 galleries) and Switzerland (9 galleries). Some 74% of the galleries are
European. Galleries from Brazil, Turkey and South Africa will be present for the first time. 37 galleries will début at FIAC or are returning after an absence.
