Art Fair, Grand Palais, etc. Paris, France, 22 – 25 October 2015
This colossal contemporary art fair is now in its 42nd edition. With a programme including 173 galleries from 23 countries at the Grand Palais alone, the event also has two sister events: FIAC Hors Les Murs and OFFICIELLE. Attractions include outdoor galleries, projections, films, and sound installations. While FIAC usually invites the more established contemporary galleries to the capital, the slightly edgier OFFICIELLE (which starts a day earlier at the Cité de la Mode et du Design) is showcasing around 60 different new and emerging faces on the gallery scene. This year, people are boated up and down the Seine between 20 Parisian art institutions.
