As an art enthusiast, there are some of these events that one cannot miss.

The FIAC show in Paris

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.

What is FIAC ?

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.
