FIAC presents a two-day conferences cycle, on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st of October, in the Conversation Room inside the fair, on the first floor on the right of the Escalier d’honneur of the Grand Palais.
In 2017, FIAC invites 89plus, a long-term, international, multiplatform research project co-founded by Simon Castets and Hans Ulrich Obrist, investigating the generation of innovators born in or after 1989.
Marked by several paradigm-shifting events, the year 1989 saw the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the start of the post- Cold War period, and the introduction of the World Wide Web and the beginning of the universal availability of the Internet. Positing a relationship between these world-changing events and creative production at large, 89plus introduces the work of some of this generation’s most inspiring protagonists.
89plus has partnered with Google Arts and Culture for over four years, with artist residencies at the Google Arts and Culture Lab.
The 2017 89plus residency welcomes artists Lito Kattou, Elise By Olsen and Matt Copson.
In partnership with Google Arts & Culture.
