PARIS.- For its 39th year, FIAC continues to build on past editions, developing and evolving while maintaining the strong features inherent to FIAC, including: its rigorous selection process, guaranteeing exemplary standards of quality; its broad scope, which allows for a balanced overview of modern and contemporary art and works by emerging artists; its firm foothold in the heart of Paris, working alongside public and private stakeholders in the world of arts and culture; and it's acute perceptiveness surrounding current developments within the creative and intellectual fields, both on a Parisian and world wide scale.

Both international and French, FIAC has become one of the major events in artistic creation.
FIAC 2012 will bring together around 180 galleries from 24 countries at the Grand Palais. France will be represented by 61 galleries (or 34% of the exhibitors), followed by the United-States (30 galleries), Germany (24 galleries), Italy (12 galleries), Belgium (14 galleries), the United Kingdom (9 galleries), and Switzerland (6 galleries). Galleries from Denmark, Poland, Romania and the United Arab Emirates will be present for the first time.

41 galleries are participating for the first time or are returning to FIAC in 2012.
FIAC testifies once again this year to its openness to different forms of creation by amplifying its Hors les Murs programme: the development of outdoor projects in the Tuileries Garden, the Jardin des Plantes and various sites at the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle; the enhancement of its programme of performances, artists' films and the inauguration of conference programmes, along with associated projects such as R4 on Ile Seguin, all bare witness to FIAC's myriad and successful collaborations and projects, all of which continue to be developed and expanded upon, now and in the years to come.

The synergies that FIAC develops with the stakeholders of Parisian cultural life through initiatives such as the Parcours Privé and the Nocturne des Galeries contribute to showcasing the Parisian arts scene and place the capital at the forefront of the international cultural scene.
