On Wednesday, FIAC (Foire International d’Art Contemporain) opened its 47th fair in its temporary home at Paris’s Grand Palais Éphémère, a venue built in preparation for the 2024 Olympic Games. The main purpose of the new 107,000-square-foot space is to host events that would ordinarily take place at the Grand Palais, which is currently closed for renovation. Located near the Eiffel Tower, the Grand Palais Éphémère is slightly easier to navigate than the historic Grand Palais, where FIAC is usually staged.

At 10 a.m. yesterday, VIP guests lined up in front of the Grand Palais Éphémère. There was some minor confusion at the very start of the event—some guests were advised to come at the wrong time, and had to plead their cases to get inside that morning—but all things considered, the first in-person FIAC held since 2019 has so far gone largely as planned. Some 160 dealers from 25 countries eagerly rolled out their displays, and many of them reported strong sales. Below are 10 highlights from the fair, which runs in the French capital through Sunday.
