    • Place Vendôme

      FIAC invites an artist to install a major artwork or to imagine a specific project for the Place Vendôme which provides both powerful inspiration and an exceptional decor for contemporary creation.

      In collaboration with the gallery Perrotin, this year FIAC gives carte blanche to Elmgreen & Dragset to present an in-situ project on this prestigious Parisian square.

      Elmgreen & Dragset will install 100 red starfish scattered around the square. According to legend, starfish have been considered reflections of the stars in the sky on the ocean floor. Even though these creatures do not have brains, they can move and sense the world around them through instincts and reflexes. But these mysterious and magical creatures have over the last decades become threatened due to environmental pollution.

      Main sponsor:
      Groupe Mirabaud
      FIAC receives the support of Mirabaud, financial and banking group founded in Geneva in 1819.

    • Place de la Concorde

      In a development of the Hors les Murs promenade at the Jardin des Tuileries, FIAC inaugurates an ephemeral village of architectural projects on Place de la Concorde.

      Exceptional architectural installations will be presented, forming an ensemble of historical and contemporary architecture and artists’ houses.

      This outstanding introduction to ephemeral architecture, nomadic habitats, and utopian living spaces includes works by Jean Prouvé, Kengo Kuma, and Daan Roosegaarde, among others.

    • Musée National Eugène Delacroix

      In the continuity of FIAC Hors les Murs in the Jardin des Tuileries, the Musée National Eugène Delacroix opens to FIAC visitors, in collaboration with the musée du Louvre. Situated in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the museum is an unexpected haven of peace, niched between courtyard and garden. The separate studio building and adjacent garden were entirely designed by the artist himself. Transformed into a museum by the painter Maurice Denis, it was originally the artist’s apartment and studio.

      This unique jewel-like setting will feature works by Rebecca Warren, in collaboration with the gallery Max Hetzler.

      Rebecca Warren (born in 1965, lives and works in London) makes sculptures, assemblages and constructions in a variety of materials including clay, bronze, steel and neon.
