Paris, Grand Palais/Louvre Museum

This year FIAC brings together almost 200 galleries dedicated to modern and contemporary art from around the world in the French capital. Set within two of the city’s most prominent cultural landmarks – the Grand Palais, which hosts the main exhibition and the Cour Carrée within the Louvre, which showcases emerging galleries – the debut of some of the world’s biggest players in the art work, which includes New York’s Pace Wildenstein, Galerie Beyeler of Basel and, of course, Gagosian Gallery reinforces the importance of this major European art fair.

Some of the major highlights of this year’s FIAC program include Buchmann Galerie’s solo exhibition of Tony Cragg, George Condo at Simon Lee, Rachel Whiteread at New York’s Luhring Augustine gallery and Erwin Blumenfeld, presented by Tel Aviv’s Minotaure Gallery. Meanwhile the gardens of the Tuileries is the setting for outdoor works, from Jim Dine’s Large Parrot Screams Color, to Large Presidential Election by the Irish artist Barry Flanagan, who passed away recently.
