Online Viewing Rooms
From March 4 – 7, 2021

This week is about to get digital for the International Contemporary Art Fair, or FIAC, which is launching its first edition of FIAC Online Viewing Rooms from March 4 to 7, 2021. Created in collaboration with Artlogic, the industry leader in digital technology for the art world, the new online platform will feature over 200 galleries, from 28 countries, both established and emerging, with contemporary art, modern art, and design.


Viewers will be able to explore the dedicated pages of galleries and browse among 2,000 artworks via different options that feature selections of works produced by curators, the opportunity to get in touch with gallery owners, and access the Conversation Room. The Conversation Room will serve as a platform for discussions with high-caliber French and international institutions on subjects inspiring contemporary creation. The Bourse de Commerce (Paris), the Museo Tamayo (Mexico), the Petit Palais (Paris), and M WOODS (Beijing) will each present conferences.

With this new platform, FIAC aspires to create new connections between audiences, galleries across the world, and the artists they represent.

Stretching the boundaries of virtual exhibitions, the FIAC Online Viewing Rooms will offer the feel of in-person fairs by displaying works to scale in the environment of the Grand Palais with the “View on a Wall” feature. Just as one would wander aimlessly in a gallery, the platform will allow visitors to let themselves be surprised with the aleatory propositions of the “Chance Encounter” feature.

FIAC is also inaugurating invited curators in Through the Eyes Ofa program of curatorial selections presented by five French and international exhibition curators from five very different backgrounds.

This year will be significant for the FIAC, not only because of the Online Viewing Rooms launch, but also with the upcoming installation for its 47th edition in the Grand Palais Ephémère on the Champ-de-Mars in October.
