Issued on: Modified:
The International Contemporary Art Fair - FIAC - is in full swing in Paris. The four-day event showcases the work of some 1,500 artists from 180 galleries around the globe. It's on display at the Grand Palais, but also at satellite fairs on the sidelines and outdoors in some of the city's most iconic locations. Richelle Harrison Plesse speaks to art dealer Kamel Mennour about the artists to look out for at this year's fair, and why contemporary art has an important place in the French capital.
