Bringing together 196 galleries specializing in modern and contemporary art, together with a design sector featuring 7 of the world’s leading galleries in the field, the 36th edition of FIAC will take place from October 22nd to October 25th at the Grand Palais, the Cour Carrée of the Louvre Museum and in the Tuileries Gardens.

One of the highlights of FIAC 2009 will be an unprecedented project resulting from the collaboration of 10 of the world’s most prestigious galleries specialising in modern art. Presented in a space of approximately 300m2 designed by the architect Jean-François Bodin (reputed for his work at the Centre Pompidou, the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and the Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine) and situated in the heart of the Grand Palais, each gallery will exhibit two or three exceptional works from the modern period, composing an ensemble of approximately twenty works of undisputed museum quality and historic significance.

The participating galleries are: Acquavella Galleries (New York), Thomas Amman (Zürich), Galerie Beyeler (Basel), Galerie Louis Carré & Cie (Paris), Gagosian Gallery (New York – Los Angeles – London – Roma), Richard Gray (New York, Chicago), Galerie Krugier & Cie (Geneva – New York), L&M Arts (New York), Malingue (Paris), and PaceWildenstein (New York).

This initiative, which constitutes a world première, responds to the desire to reaffirm and highlight the essential role of leading dealers in the historiography, exhibition and negotiation of modern masterworks.

Please consult our website for the complete list of FIAC 2009 exhibitors, including the 14 galleries selected by a board composed of curators Christine Macel (Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Hans-Ulrich Obrist (Serpentine Gallery, London) and Marc-Oliver Wahler (Palais de Tokyo, Paris) to participate in a new sector subsidized by FIAC 2009′s official sponsor, the Groupe Galeries Lafayette.
