Paris is a world centre for the creation and presentation of contemporary art. The city has always embraced the new and innovative, proved receptive to new ideas and displayed the results with flair and style. Such a fresh and open attitude continues this Autumn, when there are quality events being presented that will allow you to make the most of design and contemporary art in Paris, assisted by your reliable guide and host, the Hotel de la Herse d'Or.
International shows for both professionals and the public
Art Elysées, the modern and contemporary art fair, and Design Elysées, the interior design show, both take place at the same time; October 23rd to 27th. This allows for a broad overview of both of these shows of international repute. Art Elysées encompasses a wide variety of media, including drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures and installations. Taking place in the pavilions on the Champs Elysées, in front of the Grand Palais, the theme of Design Elysées this year will be furniture and design objects of the 20th century.
Running concurrently with the above events and presented beneath the stunning glass roof and dome of the Grand Palais from October 23rd to 26th will be FIAC, the Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain. Established in 1974, this has become a major global art event, presenting more than 180 galleries from some 25 countries. The show will also extend beyond the boundaries of its venue by presenting an ensemble of outdoor works, plus lectures and the screenings of films by various artists presented in significant Parisian locations.
