For several days each year, Paris becomes the world capital of contemporary art with the FIAC, the International Contemporary Art Fair. A veritable institution recognized worldwide, the FIAC is an opportunity for the public to discover the latest developments in contemporary art, through works by some of the most famous artists in the world.
The FIAC is also the occasion for an artist residing in France, or of French origin, to be awarded the prestigious Marcel Duchamp Prize, which brings with it international recognition. Like all fairs, the FIAC is also a marketplace where the works of art change hands and professionals meet. Each year, there is much speculation in the press about the price of various works of art, which contributes to establishing the legitimacy of the artists.
