FIAC 2013 is an international art fair centrally situated in the heart of Paris, and offering a rich overview of the world of Contemporary Art.

The Grand Palais, near the Champs Élysées Avenue, will host this annual event.
Under its majestic glass roof, visitors will be able to view works by 3,177 artists, represented by 184 galleries from 24 countries.
From London and São Paulo to Tel-Aviv and Milan, FIAC has established itself as a major international art fair.
This year, galleries from Denmark, Poland, Romania, and the United Arab Emirates will participate for the first time.

A large audience of collectors, gallery owners, curators, museum directors, connoisseurs, and art lovers are expected to attend. Well-known galleries such as Thaddaeus Ropac, Galerie Lelong, and the David Zwirner gallery will exhibit a selection of Contemporary pieces.
The city of Paris will also present 20 artworks from 15 artists, acquired over the past year at the booth Fonds Municipal d’Art contemporain—Ville de Paris.

FIAC's program showcases many Contemporary Parisian artists, including Philippe Parreno (French, b.1964) at the Palais de Tokyo, and Pierre Huyghe (French, b.1962), who is holding his first retrospective at the Centre Pompidou.
During Gallery Night, on October 24, Parisian galleries will be featuring new exhibitions from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. for all FIAC visitors.

Since 2000, FIAC has partnered with Centre Pompidou for the Marcel Duchamp Prize.
This annual award supports emerging visual artists working in France and is dedicated to promoting French Art on an international scale.
This year, Galerie Xippas is representing nominated artist, Farah Atassi (Belgian, b.1981).
Claire Fontaine (French), a has also been nominated and is represented by the Galerie Chantal Crousel and Air de Paris.
Several other nominated artists are also represented by artnet Galleries members, including Galerie Kamel Mennour.

For the eighth consecutive year, FIAC will present a selection of art pieces outdoors, Hors les Murs, organized in collaboration with the Domaine National du Louvre et des Tuileries, and will take place in the heart of the Tuileries Gardens.
Installation, sculptures, performances, and acoustic art pieces are featured throughout the gardens.
As a bonus, students from the Ecole du Louvre will be on site to present and deliver further information on the Modern and Contemporary Art pieces.

With such a varied and extensive program, FIAC 2013 is not to be missed.

Art Market News: Waddington Custot chooses FIAC over Frieze

One of London’s leading galleries that has been exhibiting at the Frieze Art fair since it began will not be there this year, or at its sibling fair, Frieze Masters. Waddington Custot has opted to go to Paris instead for the rival FIAC modern and contemporary art fair, which opens next week. One of the reasons, and one senses there are several, is that Paris has offered it a prime location for a monumental, £3.7 million sculpture by Jean Dubuffet, ranked among the most important artists of the 20th century.
Welcome Parade (pictured) consists of five dancing figures, some up to 16 feet high, from the artist’s celebrated “Hourloupe” series. Dubuffet made several maquettes for the sculpture which was to have been installed outside the National Gallery of Art in Washington, but died before it could be realised. Now, 40 years later, Waddington, together with the Pace gallery, which share duties looking after the Dubuffet estate, have had the sculpture completed according to the artist’s wishes. Welcome Parade will be unmissable.

The Pagode du bois de Vincennes is the seat of the Institut international bouddhique founded by Jean Sainteny who was the manager of the institute.
It is located in a former building of the exposition coloniale de 1931, designed by the architect Louis-Hippolyte Boileau.
On this 8 000 m² site on the edge of the lac Daumesnil are located two buildings of remarkable architecture.
The most important one, the former house of Cameroon, was restored in 1977 and transformed in a pagoda as a place of worship. The second is the former house of Togo is slated for restoration by the City of Paris.
It will contain a library for texts on the various Buddhist traditions.

The Pagode de Vincennes is used by Buddhist schools of the Parisian region and has not any religious leader.
The pagoda is a place of common worship; it shelters the biggest Buddha of Europe, covered with gold leaf and measuring, including its seat, more than 9 meters high.
The Pagode hosts relics of the historical Buddha since 2008.

A Tibetan buddhist temple named Kagyu-Dzong exists in front of the Pagode de Vincennes.

The Pagode du bois de Vincennes, is located 40, route de Ceinture du Lac Daumesnil in the 12th arrondissement of Paris.
