Firmly established in the centre of Paris, occupying the exceptional sites of the Grand Palais, the Louvre’s Cour Carrée and the Jardin des Tuileries, the focus of FIAC 2007, which will be held from 18th through 22ndOctober, is twofold: quality exhibits and the Parisian art scene’s exceptional energy.
FIAC 2007: RENEWAL AND BALANCE

With 41 new galleries, including prestigious newcomers as well as faithful, long-time FIAC participants, the largely renewed artistic content of the exhibits will reflect both the high-level participation requirements and a balance between international scope (23 countries) and a specific emphasis on the French artistic scene.

Visitors will discover 12 new American exhibitors including such important names as Paula Cooper, David Zwirner, Sean Kelly, Luhring Augustine, Cheim&Read, The Project, John Connelly Presents, as well as galleries from Germany (Arndt & Partner, Carlier/Gebauer), England (FA Projects, Hollybush Gardens, Simon Lee, Thomas Dane), Italy (T 293), Denmark (Nils Staerk), Mexico (KBK), Portugal (Cristina Guerra Contemporary Art)
In 2007 FIAC also reaffirms its generalist identity through a reorganisation of its venues: the design sector (which FIAC was the first contemporary art fair to propose) will be set up in the Grand Palais, alongside modern and contemporary art. The highly-restricted selection in this field (not more than 10 exhibitors) includes the return of the Parisians Patrick Seguin and Kreo, and the arrival of Yves Macaux from Brussels.

More than ever, the Louvre’s Cour Carrée will be dedicated to cutting-edge creation and forward-looking artists. Among the 20 new arrivals in this venue, undoubtedly one of the strongest points of FIAC 2007, are Art Concept and Gabrielle Maubrie from Paris, John Connelly Presents and Foxy Production from New York, the Germans Johan König and Iris Kadel, the Italians Zero, Francesca Minini, T293
CULTURAL PROGRAMMES AND SPECIAL PROJECTS

Many projects which were launched during the last two years:

– The one-man shows of the four artists nominated for the Marcel Duchamp Prize (Tatiana Trouvé, Pierre Ardouvin, Richard Fauguet and Adam Adach), to be held this year in the Cour Carrée;
– The YCI (Young Curators’ Invitational) programme for young curators from the world over, organised in partnership with the Paul Ricard Foundation, are being continued and reinforced.
– The programme of 20 original sculptures and installations (Lawrence Weiner, Pedro Cabrita Reis, Richard Jackson, Claude Levêque, Subodh Gupta, Wang Du,) in the Jardin des Tuileries, an outstanding commercial and public success last year, will also be renewed.
– “Collecting motion”, a new program of conferences organized in partnership with the Jeu de Paume.
