The Grand Palais to host FIAC until 2020

The next four editions of FIAC and Paris Photo (2017 -2020) will take place at the Grand Palais. 

Renovations in the Grand Palais will begin in late 2020, and will take two years to complete. Reed Exhibitions, the owners and organisers of FIAC and Paris Photo, in collaboration with the Rmn– Grand Palais, are currently reviewing plans to house both fairs in temporary venues near the Grand Palais during the construction period. FIAC, Paris Photo, and the Rmn– Grand Palais are strongly committed to continuing to offer an exceptional setting to their professional participants and visitors from across the world. The location of these temporary premises will be announced later in 2017. 
Once the renovations are completed, FIAC and Paris Photo will return to the Grand Palais for their 2023 editions, with the exciting perspective of benefitting from its newly expanded and improved exhibition areas.

“FIAC and Paris Photo are part of the Grand Palais’ core DNA. After its reopening in January 2023, thanks to the important renovations that will take place in 2021 and 2022, the Grand Palais will offer exceptional high-quality, generous exhibition spaces to accommodate our partners and visitors in the best possible conditions. Through its partnership with these prestigious contemporary art and photography fairs, the Grand Palais plays a key role in enhancing France’s position in the international cultural scene.“ 
Sylvie Hubac, president of the Rmn– Grand Palais 

FIAC will continue to collaborate closely with the Petit Palais for the upcoming editions of On Site, including throughout the two-year renovation period.

“Facing one another on either side of an esplanade - exclusively reserved to pedestrian traffic during the last edition of FIAC - the Petit Palais and Grand Palais have joined forces to host this major artistic event. During the refurbishment of the Grand Palais, the Petit Palais’ doors will remain open, anchoring FIAC to its historic roots on the avenue Winston Churchill.” 
Christophe Leribault, director of the Petit Palais 

The 44th edition of FIAC will take place from October 19 to 22, 2017 (opening reception on October 18). The 21st edition of Paris Photo will take place from November 9 to 12, 2017 (opening reception on November 8).
