FIAC Projects

FIAC Projects presents sculptures and installations in situ, within the prestigious setting of the Petit Palais, around the Grand Palais, and on Avenue Winston Churchill, pedestrianized again this year during FIAC week. Instigated by FIAC, the pedestrianization of the avenue has enabled the reconstruction of the original esplanade of the 1900 World Fair, thus connecting the Petit Palais and the Grand Palais. The ensemble creates an unprecedented platform to exhibit artworks within an historic museum context.

FIAC Projects is conceived in collaboration with Marc-Olivier Wahler, Director of the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University. He collaborates with the curatorial teams of the Petit Palais and FIAC’s artistic directors to select the artworks presented in the Petit Palais.
