The 47th edition of FIAC takes place for the first time at the Grand Palais Éphémère on the Champ-de-Mars, 

from October 21st to October 24th 2021.

 

From October 21st to October 24th, for its 47th edition, FIAC is pleased to bring together over 170 galleries from 25 countries at the Grand Palais Ephémère and the Galerie Eiffel, which has been specifically installed for FIAC as an extension of the structure on the Champ-de-Mars.

 

Designed by architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte as the expression of urban challenges of the 21st century, the Grand Palais Éphémère is the example of a new, sustainable, agile and eco responsible architecture. It blends harmoniously into the surroundings of the Champ-de-Mars, and reflects the history of this site, in direct continuity with the role it fulfilled during the great World Exhibitions of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

An edifice with a surface area of 10 000 square metres, the Grand Palais Éphémère was built to reflect the original Parisian monument, around a principal nave comprising forty-four sustainably sourced wooden archways, enveloped in a fully recyclable transparent web.

 

As an extension of the Grand Palais Éphémère, FIAC is delighted to invest the Galerie Eiffel, an additional wing, installed on the Champ-de-Mars on the Eiffel Tower side. Together, the Grand Palais Éphémère and the Galerie Eiffel form a prestigious setting, combining tradition and modernity, to host this great celebration of international creation.
