FIAC and Paris Photo have announced that the next four editions of the fairs (2017 – 2020) will take place at the Grand Palais. Renovations of the Grand Palais will begin in late 2020, and will take two years to complete. The 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 works. FIAC, Paris Photo, and the Rmn – Grand Palais are strongly committed to continuing to offer an exceptional setting for the fairs 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, taking advantage of its newly expanded and improved exhibition area.
“FIAC and Paris Photo are part of the Grand Palais’ core DNA”
“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 there in 2021 and 2022, the Grand Palais will offer exceptional high-quality, generous exhibition spaces to accommodate our partners and visitors in the best way possible. Through its partnership with these prestigious contemporary art and photography fairs, the Grand Palais plays a key role in boosting France’s position in the international cultural scene. “
Sylvie Hubac, president of the Rmn – Grand Palais FIAC will continue to partner with the Petit Palais for the upcoming editions of On Site, including throughout the two years of renovation works. “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
