Each autumn, the Foire Internationale d'Art Contemporain (FIAC) makes Paris the destination of choice for amateurs and professionals in the contemporary art sector. This is an opportunity to assess market trends as well as discover new talent. Visit this superb art fair while enjoying your stay at the Hotel Eiffel Blomet!
The constantly evolving FIAC Paris
The heart of the FIAC remains, of course, the Grand Palais. Here the main exhibitors are hosted; 199 galleries from around the world. The venue also allows artists to present their creations to the public directly. However, each year the popularity of the FIAC leads to the fair overflowing the walls of the Grand Palais into the Petit Palais and beyond. So, it’s really an entire district of Paris that will become a showcase for contemporary art from October 17th to 20th.
The extramural FIAC
You are invited to discover original creations during your walks in the heart of Paris thanks to the extramural FIAC. This part of the FIAC has become a major attraction in its own right, offering a dialogue between contemporary creations and the prestigious setting of Parisian landmarks. Take advantage of these beautiful autumn days by strolling in the Jardin des Tuileries, in the gardens of the Delacroix Museum, through the Place Vendome and the Place de la Concorde. Away from the Grand Palais crowds, you can contemplate the works of the most fashionable artists at your own pace.
Whether you wish to visit the Grand Palais or enjoy the art installations outside its walls, the Hotel Eiffel Blomet team will give you all the info about the FIAC Paris so you can make the most of this fascinating fair. Book your tickets at the same time as your accommodation!
