For its 44th edition from 19 to 22 October 2017 in Paris, FIAC (Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain / International Contemporary Art Fair) will host a carefully balanced selection of leading international galleries in the iconic Grand Palais. FIAC consolidates the presence of major galleries working in the field of modern and contemporary art and confirms its support of the emerging generation, notably via the Lafayette Sector organized in partnership with our official sponsor, the Galeries Lafayette Group. Fresh, eclectic and edgy, this year’s selection is sure to attract wide-spread attention from connaisseurs and amateurs alike. Keen interest from exhibitors in all sectors of the market confirms Paris’s growing appeal. Increasingly FIAC appears as a must in the autumn calendar.
