FIAC 2015 & OTHERS // Intimate selection

They’re opening the doors of FIAC 2015, the International Contemporary Art Fair, and many other events taking place currently in Paris, with an intimate selection, and off the beaten track. Follow us to see our program revealed:

  • Performances / On Stage

FIAC and OFFICIELLE, the new satellite art fair, joined forces to present the work of young artists through a varied program of performances: EN SCÈNE. The National School of Fine Arts in Paris has developed this event. We loved the performance of Hélène Garcia and Emile Degorce-Dumas: Extra Lucid. It focuses on the art of divination by taromancy, and it will let you get a little glimpse of your future, for the duration of one private sitting, all in a setting created for the occasion. The deck of taromancy cards was created specially for FIAC and OFFICIELLE.

  • SLICK Art Fair

The Slick Art Fair is five days of performance, large-scale installations, presentations by young galleries, and experimental projects open to the public. The organizers have thought of everything, as a relaxation area is available to visitors. Guest star of this space, the Masterchef food truck has answered the call of the festival.

During this festival the Arte / Beaux Arts Magazine Prize will be awarded to one of the artists at the fair. There will also be a call for the production of large-scale exterior and interior works.
Numerous other events will take place in the course of this 10th edition of the SLICK art fair and on the idyllic banks of the Seine.

NUBA and WANDERLUST are opening their doors to you tonight and tomorrow night for two nights at the frenzied pace of DJ Sets, performances, installations, screenings, and also lots of surprises …
