FIAC unveils its outdoor works programme, enabling the public to discover artworks exhibited throughout the city in some of the most prestigious and emblematic locations in Paris. For its 46th edition, the fair presents an unrivalled artistic programme freely accessible to all, while offering exhibitors and their artists a unique opportunity to enter into a dialogue with Parisian heritage sites.

FIAC Projects

Petit Palais & Avenue Winston Churchill
FIAC Projects presents some 30 sculptures and installations, within the prestigious setting of the Petit Palais and on the Avenue Winston Churchill, pedestrianised during FIAC week. Instigated by FIAC, the pedestrianisation of the Avenue has enabled the temporary reconstruction of the original esplanade of the 1900 World Fair, thus connecting the Petit Palais and the Grand Palais. The ensemble creates an unique platform to exhibit artworks within a patrimonial setting.

This year, FIAC Projects is conceived in collaboration with Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel.

Discover on the Winston Churchill avenue and at the Petit Palais, artworks and installations from: Pierre Alechinsky, Nina Beier, Julien Berthier, Alexander Calder, Saint Clair Cemin, Michele Ciacciofera, Matt Copson, Johan Creten, Julien Creuzet, Jean Denant, Daniel Dewar & Grégory Gicquel, Erik Dietman, Sylvie Fleury, GENERAL IDEA, Max Hooper Schneider, Richard Jackson, Phillip King, Alicja Kwade, Nicolás Lamas, Artur Lescher, Nicolas Momein, Emeka Ogboh, Javier Pérez, Gaetano Pesce, Françoise Pétrovitch, Cameron Platter, Abraham Poincheval, Présence Panchounette, Laure Prouvost, Vivien Roubaud, Elsa Sahal, Kiki Smith, Thu-Van Tran, Daniel Turner, Nobuko Tsuchiya, Lee Ufan, Jan Vercruysse, Heimo Zobernig

FIAC Hors les Murs

Jardin des Tuileries
FIAC, in association with the musee du Louvre, presents its Hors les Murs outdoor exhibition in the Jardin des Tuileries, inaugurated in 2006. Over twenty artworks are displayed in different spaces within the garden, resonating with this heritage setting in the heart of Paris and responding to its scale, perspectives and history.

Discover in the garden, artworks from: Jean-Marie Appriou, Pierre Ardouvin, John Armleder, Katinka Bock, Alexander Calder, César, Mark di Suvero, Noël Dolla, Ida Ekblad, Sylvie Fleury, Romuald Hazoumè, Jenny Holzer, Richard Jackson, Alex Katz, Jonathan Meese, Matthew Monahan, Shana Moulton, Moataz Nasr, Younès Rahmoun, Stefan Rinck, Vladimir Skoda, Tomi Ungerer, Lois Weinberger.

Place de la Concorde
In an unprecedented development of the Hors les Murs promenade in the Jardin des Tuileries, FIAC inaugurated in 2018 an ephemeral village of architectural projects on the most iconic of all Parisian squares, the Place de la Concorde. Exceptional installations are presented, forming an ensemble of historic, contemporary architecture and artists’ houses.

Discover on the Place de la Concorde, artworks from: Cecilie Bendixen, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Odile Decq, Jean Prouvé. 
Exceptionally this year, the program includes the off-site presentation of a round structure, rare in the oeuvre of Jean Prouvé, at the Hôtel de Choudens.

Place Vendôme
Each year, FIAC Hors les Murs invites an artist to install a major artwork or to imagine a specific project for the Place Vendome, which provides both powerful inspiration and an exceptional framework for contemporary creation. Built in perfect classical symmetry, the Place Vendome exemplifies creation, excellence and savoir-faire.

In collaboration with Victoria Miro, Ota Fine Arts, and David Zwirner, FIAC gives this year’s carte blanche to the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama to present a project for this prestigious Parisian square.

FIAC receives the support of Mirabaud, financial and banking group founded in Geneva in 1819. This artwork was produced thanks to the support of CSIG.

Musée national Eugène Delacroix
In the continuity of FIAC Hors les Murs in the Jardin des Tuileries, the musee national Eugene Delacroix opens to FIAC visitors, in collaboration with the musee du Louvre. Situated in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, the museum is an unexpected haven of peace, positioned between a courtyard and a garden.

This unique jewel-like setting will feature works by Glenn Brown, in collaboration with Max Hetzler (Berlin, Paris, London).
