Art Week akin to Fashion Week
Art & Business | 75,000 people visited the 2013 FIAC (+4%) for its 40th anniversary as it spread beyond walls and broke down boundaries in the short space of a week with the VIP pathway organised for 5,000 lucky participants. From east to west, Paris to Lille (via Metz) offerings were presented on an hourly basis, with FIAC events and « lifestyle » exhibitions, art advisors in luxury private homes (Nadia Candet, Laurence Dreyfus), previews of major exhibitions, happenings and private visits to collectors. Playing on the discovery of emerging artists or the re-discovery of long-established artists, other complementary fairs energised the event such as the YIA ART FAIR, which formed part of this buzzing pathway. A week after London, it was Paris’ turn to play art capital and adopt the Fashion Week rhythm. As in the fashion industry, the market time for art has sped up with a fair every day somewhere in the world and two million pieces sold per year (according to Art Price figures).
