Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
The 47th edition of FIAC returns to Paris, open October 21—24. Taking place within the Grand Palais Ephémère and the specially constructed Galerie Eiffel at the Champ-de-Mars, this year’s fair will see 160 international galleries sharing artworks in-person, and online through a viewing room by Artlogic.
In the General sector, new exhibitors include names like the Vienna-based Layr, Andrew Edlin and Rachel Uffner from New York, and Deborah Schamoni of Munich, while those you may recognize from past editions include White Cube, Xavier Hufkens, Massimo de Carlo, Chantal Crousel, Gagosian, Nathalie Obadia, Hauser & Wirth, Paula Cooper, and Almine Rech.
The fair has selected 10 names for the Young Galleries sector, where attendees will find shows like an exhibition of Wai Kin Sin with London’s Soft Opening, the Paris-based sans titre sharing the work of Agnes Scherer, and Basel’s Weiss Falk exhibiting the work of Urban Zellweger. And with the focused Design sector, this edition will see specialty galleries like Galerie kreo, Galerie Patrick Seguin, and LAFFANOUR – Galerie Downtown presenting showcases of furniture and modern or contemporary design objects.
Outside of these main sectors, programming to look out for includes the recurring “Hors les Murs” exhibition, a presentation of Jean Claracq curated by Claire Bessède at the musée national Eugène Delacroix, and the panels and performances encompassed in the Conversation Room. Finally, coinciding with the launch of the fair, the Petit Palais has debuted with support from Perrotin a solo exhibition of Jean-Michel Othoniel titled “The Narcissus Theorem,” which fills the institutions halls and outdoor spaces with the artist’s mirrored glassworks.
