This year, for its 44th edition from 19 to 22 October 2017 in Paris, FIAC will bring together exhibitors from 26 countries: Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Egypt, France, Germany, Holland, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Israel, Italy, Kosovo, Mexico, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Spain, South Korea, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
The largest contingent of exhibitors is French (over a quarter of those included) and European (over two thirds). FIAC’s strength is likewise built on the long standing commitment of important European galleries, each of whom is recognized as a leader in their chosen field: Galerie Buchholz, Capitain Petzel, Sadie Coles HQ, Continua, Massimo De Carlo, Konrad Fisher, Bärbel Grässlin, Max Hetzler, Xavier Hufkens, Krinzinger, Lisson, Mai 36 Galerie, Victoria Miro, Jan Mot, Neu, neugerriemschneider, Eva Presenhuber, Esther Schipper, Sprüth Magers, Michael Werner, White Cube, Zeno X, as well as Isabella Bortolozzi, dépendance, Karma International, kaufmann repetto, König Galerie, Giò Marconi, Meyer Riegger, Neue Alte Brücke, Peres Projects, Plan B, Rodeo, ZERO… and their younger colleagues Lars Friedrich or Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler.
Over the last decade, the presence of North American galleries (Canada, United States, Mexico) has considerably increased and now represents more than 20% of the exhibitors.
The next four editions of FIAC and Paris Photo (2017 -2020) will take place at the Grand Palais. Renovations in the Grand Palais will begin in late 2020, and will take two years to complete. Reed Exhibitions, the owners and organisers of FIAC and Paris Photo, in collaboration with the Rmn– Grand Palais, are currently reviewing plans to house both fairs in temporary venues near the Grand Palais during the construction period. FIAC, Paris Photo, and the Rmn– Grand Palais are strongly committed to continuing to offer an exceptional setting to their professional participants and visitors from across the world. The location of these temporary premises will be announced later in 2017.
Once the renovations are completed, FIAC and Paris Photo will return to the Grand Palais for their 2023 editions, with the exciting perspective of benefitting from its newly expanded and improved exhibition areas.
