Highlights from a More Diversified FIAC

No contributor

This year’s edition of FIAC had a very diversified inventory. One didn’t see the same works again and again, as you sometimes do at other fairs. And everything was better seen in the daylight through the glass ceiling of the Grand Palais, which was more comfortable and pleasing for the eyes.

We took in the amazing portrait of Van Gogh (sold at the very beginning!) by Robert Longo on view at Thaddaeus Ropac. We saw an interesting sculpture by Jean-Michel Othoniel at Galerie Perrotin, a departure from his well-known strings of glass beads.

There was a stunning Claude Leveque, white neon that read, “je t’aime,” refering to his relation with his mother, at Kamel Mennour. Another beautiful piece on view was a work by Rudolf Stingel at Nahmad.

We also loved the Nara table at Blum and Poe. The tourist-looking couple by Duane Hanson got itself talked about at GagosianChiharu Shiota at Daniel Templon was not to be missed, as well as Esther Schipper at Johnen Galerie.
