The Foire Internationale d'Art Contemporain (FIAC) is an annual art fair held in Paris, France, known for showcasing modern and contemporary art from galleries around the world. Established in the late 1970s, FIAC has grown to become one of the most prestigious art fairs in Europe, attracting collectors, curators, and art enthusiasts alike.

FIAC takes place in October, primarily within the historic halls of the Grand Palais, a symbol of French architectural grandeur. The fair features an exacting selection of galleries, representing over 25 countries and showcasing works by established and emerging artists. In addition to the Grand Palais, FIAC Projects presents sculptures and installations in situ, transforming the public spaces around the Grand Palais and the Petit Palais into open-air galleries. Notable sites include the Jardin des Tuileries, Place Vendôme, and Avenue Winston Churchill, which are pedestrianized during FIAC week, allowing visitors to engage with art in a unique and intimate setting.

Over the years, FIAC has expanded its offerings to include a diverse public program, aiming to broaden the audience for contemporary art. The fair has collaborated with institutions such as the École du Louvre, offering guided tours and educational experiences for students and the general public. This commitment to accessibility and education reflects FIAC's dedication to fostering a deeper appreciation for contemporary art and its role in society.

Despite changes in the art world, FIAC has maintained its position as a significant event in the international art fair circuit. The fair's unique blend of prestigious galleries, public installations, and educational programming continues to attract a diverse and engaged audience, solidifying its reputation as a premier destination for modern and contemporary art.
