FIAC — Hors les murs
Past: October 18 → 23, 2016
An itinerary of outdoor works in three iconic Paris venues
The Tuileries Garden
Inauguration Tuesday 18 October, at noon
Since 2006, FIAC and the Domaine national du Louvre et des Tuileries have presented, in the paths, lawns and ponds of the famous Tuileries Garden, a programme of outdoor works including installations, sculptures, and sound works.
Discover artworks and monumental installations by Berdaguer and Péjus, Joe Bradley, Alexander Calder, Mircea Cantor, Gloria Friedmann, Jacques Julien, Thomas Kilpper, Michael Sailstorfer, but also exceptional presentations of architectural works of Ron Arad, Mauricio Pezo and Sofia von Ellrichshausen, or Yona Friedman, among others.
The Musée Eugène Delacroix
As an extension of the exhibition of outdoor works in the Tuileries Garden, the Musée Eugène Delacroix will open its doors to FIAC visitors, in association with the Musée du Louvre. Situated in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the Eugène Delacroix Museum, is an unexpected haven of peace, niched between courtyard and garden. Originally the artist’s apartment and studio, it was transformed into a museum by the painter Maurice Denis and some major painters from the 1920s. It is therefore a venue that is dedicated to artistic creation.
Address: 6 Rue de Furstenberg, 75006 Paris
FIAC continues its collaboration with the Comité Vendôme and its members to present monumental artworks on the Place Vendôme. A magnificent setting dominated by beautiful stone, the Place Vendôme represents creation, excellence and savoir-faire.
In association with Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Gladstone Gallery, Sadie Coles HQ and Esther Schipper, the Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone presents a series of seven majestic sculptures in aluminium: he alludes to the olive trees that often grow in the region of Campania in Italy, where his family is from. Like “time capsules”, he paints over them in white to give the illusion of ghostly trees: “the ghosts of the passage of time”.
Address: Place Vendôme, 75001 Paris
