FIAC Is Called Off

FIAC 2020 It is with great disappointment that we announce the cancellation of FIAC 2020, initially scheduled at the Grand Palais from October 22nd to 25th. This decision is the result of ongoing dialogue between the fair organizers and exhibitors, collectors, visitors and partners over these past weeks. Despite our efforts and profound determination to hold FIAC in 2020, we feel that we are not in a position to produce an event that meets the expectations and ambitions of our exhibitors and public. This has not been an easy decision and we share the disappointment of those of you, who like us, had hoped for a different outcome. We look forward to seeing you next autumn in the Grand Palais Éphémère on the Champ-de-Mars in Paris, to create a renewed FIAC 2021. C’est avec une grande déception que nous sommes contraints d’annuler l’édition 2020 de la FIAC, prévue au Grand Palais du 22 au 25 octobre. Cette décision est le fruit des nombreux et constants échanges entre l’organisation et ses exposants, visiteurs, collectionneurs et partenaires ces dernières semaines. Malgré notre profonde détermination à organiser la FIAC en 2020, nous considérons que nous ne sommes pas en mesure de proposer un événement à la hauteur des attentes et des ambitions de ses exposants et visiteurs. Cette décision a été difficile à prendre et nous partageons la déception de ceux d’entre vous, qui comme nous, ont porté et soutenu jusqu’au bout le projet d’une FIAC 2020. Nous vous donnons rendez-vous à l’automne prochain au Grand Palais éphémère au Champ-de-Mars pour créer ensemble une FIAC 2021.

It is with sad news that we report that Paris’s FIAC fair has been called off for 2020. Despite best efforts, the organisers do not think they can go ahead vis a vis the current global situation.
