Director of FIAC, Jennifer Flay shares with AMA the spirit of this 43rd edition.
AMA: What are the FIAC’s strengths this year?
Jennifer Flay: We’re very proud of the creation of On Site, found inside and around the Petit Palais; we’ve given the project this name to distinguish it clearly from the Hors les Murs project. On Site is a sector in its own right within our fair, and the result of continued discussion with the Parisian museum over four years, starting with a Jean Dubuffet sculpture, then three Liz Glynn works in the garden last year, or else a performance by Rachid Johnson. For this edition, which represents the hatching of our project, the FIAC galleries are proposing works which they wish to bring to the fore, either because they’re very big, or so special that they can be enhanced by this museum presentation.
