The International Contemporary Art Fair, or FIAC, is one of the globe's largest forums for contemporary artists, gallery owners and dealers. Every year, hundreds of gallery owners and thousands of visitors swarm the Grand Palais and other locations in Paris to show off artists' work, take in the excitement of new trends and make acquisitions. In addition to the main floor at the Grand Palais, events such as the Parisian Galleries' Night Out extend the event all over the city, generating much dynamism. Fans of contemporary arts should reserve some time to attend what has become an "incontournable" (not to be missed) event.
