Lastly, design is back big time. After years of success at the Carré du Louvre, its new quarters at the Grand Palais are lined with blue-chip galleries like Kreo, Jousse Entreprise, Laffanour Galerie Downtown/Paris, Éric Philippe and Patrick Seguin – all premium Paris names.
And there’s more good news: the Hors les Murs program is now bigger and better, with another edition of Parades for Fiac, launched last year, in the running. A festival dedicated to performative practices, it explores the intersection between music, contemporary dance, performance and poetry, presented in venues close to the Grand Palais – the Louvre, the Palais de la Découverte, and now also the Centre Pompidou.
With stands and works of the highest quality, its place among the best fairs in the world is guaranteed. So should Fiac be introducing the public to the performing arts? Is that its role? That’s the question.
October 19 to 22.
Noon to 8pm (7pm Saturday and Sunday). €37. Fiac Catalogue €35.
