FIAC to the future. As FIAC prepares to say au revoir to le Grand Palais, Paris’ most anticipated Art event of the year waxed nostalgic on its past, showcased art devoted to the urgency of life in the present moment while focusing on the emerging talents of tomorrow. This year’s 46th edition marks the last time the colossal event will take place at the Grand Palais before it is forced to move when the monument undergoes major renovations through 2024. This French-accented fair featured 199 galleries from an unprecedented 29 countries as Paris reaffirmed itself as the capital of culture on the world’s stage. The ambitious offerings were reflections of the current climate – both political and meteorological – with several works focusing on climate change, mental health and our global consumption habits.
