Posted in Discover Paris le 15 September 2021
As an art enthusiast, there are some of these events that one cannot miss. This is the case of FIAC, which brings together modern and contemporary art galleries from the national and international scene. But before taking your ticket for this event, it is essential to think about booking your hotel for the FIAC.
If many are familiar with the Fiac (international fair of contemporary arts), for many people who are not necessarily in the field of art, this represents a new theme. So, first of all, it would be wise to know what it is really about.
The International Contemporary Arts Fair (FIAC) is one of the biggest art events in the world. Founded in 1974, the FIAC is an event that brings together modern art, contemporary art, emerging creation and design in Paris. Held every year in October, this fair brings together a host of artists from several countries.
For a few days, the Fiac becomes the meeting place for painters, photographers, sculptors, digital art professionals and others. This meeting is also an opportunity to meet gallery owners, curators, collectors or museum directors and other personalities from the art world.
It is therefore one of the most important events of the year in terms of art, which will be held at the "Grand Palais Ephémère" in Paris. To this end, a very attractive program has been concocted for the participants.
After a year of absence due to the health crisis, the Fiac returns this year from October 21 to 24 at the "Grand Palais Ephémère" for the happiness of all. This year's program is as follows :
· Presentation of the most prestigious French and international galleries within its General Sector;
· Competing for 32 new exhibitors within the general sector from France and other countries in Europe, Asia and America;
· Exhibition of key players in the modernist and contemporary furniture and design market within the design sector;
· Cultural programming;
· FIAC outside the walls in collaboration with the national domain of the Louvre and the Tuileries at the Jardin des Tuileries;
Note that from Thursday October 21 to Friday October 22, 2021, activities will take place from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. while on Saturday October 23 and Sunday October 24, activities will start at 12 p.m. and end at 7 p.m.
Among all the above activities, there is one that attracts attention by its scope. This is the FIAC outside the walls. Indeed, the FIAC outside the walls represents a selection of sculptures and installations that are exhibited in emblematic places in Paris such as Place Vendôme, the Tuileries Gardens or the Delacroix Museum.
This artistic walk in the heart of Paris is an opportunity for the general public to discover the best of contemporary art. And to enjoy all these activities without too much hassle, it is strongly recommended to opt for a hotel very close to the Fiac like the Bleu de Grenelle.
In order to take full advantage of the Fiac while having an unforgettable stay, it is essential to choose a hotel close enough to the “Grand Palais Ephémère”, but also a hotel offering quality services and accommodation. This is why you should choose the Bleu de Grenelle which perfectly matches these criteria.
Nestled in the 15th arrondissement of Paris, the Bleu de Grenelle is a hotel that lives up to its name. Painted in blue, this hotel welcomes you in a sumptuous setting with contemporary decor.
