FIAC 2010

With some of the best galleries in the art world joining the FIAC 2010, like Victoria Miro, Paula Cooper, David Zwirner and the Gagosian, the organiser Jennifer Flay must be proud to have imposed the FIAC as one of the most important fairs of the year. Divided between the Grand Palais and the Cour Carrée du Louvre, the 2010 edition was dense, stimulating, and successful. The selection brings together modern art, contemporary art, and a touch of all media. Indeed, FIAC has gathered the massive and irreverent paintings of Jonathan Meese, the violent and gore works of Abdessemed or Hirschhorn, the parodic installation of William Pope L, and the epic canon of Joep van Lieshout among a myriad of artists. With a better selection than the past and the presence of new major works, FIAC has become a real highlight on the art calendar Text and Photo Pierre-Alexandre Mateos
