What You Need to Know for FIAC, ASIA NOW, and Outsider Art Fair Next Week

By Charlotte Boutboul

October 11, 2016

It isn’t over yet! After London FRIEZE, it is Paris FIAC that will be taking place next week (October 20-23). So get on that Eurostar and find your way to the Grand Palais on avenue Winston Churchill, and then on to avenue Hoche to see the fresh and promising ASIA NOW, and to Hôtel du Duc for the atypical Outsider Art Fair at .

FIAC:
The 43rd edition of FIAC boasts a brand new section: On Site, which presents over 30 works and installations at the Petit Palais. This exclusively sculptural display was curated by the museum’s director, Christophe Leribault, in collaboration with Lorenzo Benedetti . Across the street the Grand Palais, the fair’s customary venue, is opening an additional exhibiting room entitled Salon Jean Perrin, which focuses on displaying works by late 20th century masters. The fair itself is hosting this year 186 galleries from 27 countries and includes 43 newcomers, alongside well known spaces like Blum & Poe, Paula Cooper, Kamel Mennour, Victoria Miro, and David Zwirner.
And FIAC’s celebrated Hors les Murs program returns featuring conferences, films, and outdoor works at Tuileries Garden, Musée National Eugène Delacroix, Place Vendôme. Also this year will be the Parades for FIAC, a performance festival celebrating the vigorous roles of music, dance, and poetry in contemporary art, produced in association with the Louvre.

ASIA NOW:
The second edition of the boutique art fair ASIA NOW will take place at a new location at 9 Avenue Hoche in Paris. This year, a broader market will be represented at the fair, presenting works by both established and emerging artists. ASIA NOW will host over 30 galleries, up from 18 last year, and representing 13 countries including Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Tibet, and Vietnam. Debuting this year is Misa Shin Gallery (Tokyo), L-Art Gallery (Chengdu), Park Ryu Sook Gallery (Seoul), and Chi-Wen Gallery (Taipei), among many others. Also featured in the program, group and solo presentations from galleries including MadeIn Gallery (Shanghai), Blindspot Gallery (Hong Kong), Rossi & Rossi (Hong Kong, London), Tang Contemporary (Beijing, Hong Kong, Bangkok), and Gallery EXIT (Hong Kong). ASIA NOW is taking place in the intimate setting of the haussmannian building, reminiscent of a collector’s home, rather than a large exhibition space. The fair boasts a group exhibition curated by Hervé Mikaeloff with Matthias Arndt, a series of dialogues on Chinese contemporary art with Shang Xia and Christie’s, as well as a Women’s Independence Art Show curated by Magda Danysz, commissioned by Etam.

OUTSIDER ART FAIR
A total of 38 exhibitors will be present at the 4th edition of Outsider Art Fair, 15 of which are newcomers, confirming that both the Parisian and New Yorker sisters are expanding. Returning galleries include England & Co (London), Cavin Morris Gallery (New York), Creative Growth Gallery (Oakland, CA), Galerie du Marché (Lausanne), Galerie Claire Corcia (Paris), to name but a few. This year the fair called upon Gérard Audinet of the Maison de Victor Hugo to organize an exhibition of Mediumistic art. The fair will host a diverse series of talks, including a panel moderated by critic and curator Emmanuel Daydé. The origin of the fair can be traced to Art Brut (Raw Art) movement, arguably its spiritual precursor. The fair’s appellation follows Roger Cardinal’s 1972 book championing Art Brut, in which he referred to it as “Outsider Art.”
