Posted in Paris le 20 September 2021
From October 21st to 24th, Paris will pulse to the rhythm of performances and exhibitions by the biggest names in contemporary art and by those who will make themselves known in the years to come. The Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain (International Contemporary Art Fair), better known as FIAC, will be held at the Grand Palais but also in various other Parisian locations. Come and discover it during your stay at the Hotel Alizé Grenelle.
The Grand Palais Ephémère, the heart of FIAC
You walked the aisles of the Grand Palais during previous FIAC editions, but you’ll need to cross the Seine this year. The Grand Palais is currently undergoing renovation works, so the FIAC will be held this year in a temporary building specially designed to host events that usually take place in that venerable venue. The Grand Palais Ephémère, the work of architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, rears its impressive wooden framework in the majestic setting of the Champs-de-Mars at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, offering a wonderfully apt setting in which FIAC artists and gallery owners can exhibit their works.
Galleries and performances
The success of the Parisian FIAC is due to its rich diversity, with dozens of galleries and a wealth of artistic disciplines represented, as well as the various ways in which it engages with the public. In addition to browsing the gallery booths, you can attend free conferences, enjoy the Parades for FIAC and even discover works displayed in various locales throughout Paris. The FIAC website, on which you will find the online ticket office, offers many resources for discovering FIAC news, its archives, its team and a look behind the scenes.
An unmissable event for art enthusiasts and professionals, FIAC also welcomes neophytes ready to be introduced to new modes of expression and current artistic trends. Take advantage of the proximity of your Hotel Alizé Grenelle to discover FIAC at the Grand Palais Ephémère.
