As a committed player in the contemporary art arena, Mirabaud has become a partner of FIAC, Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain – the prestigious Paris Contemporary Art Fair.
Founded in Paris in 1974, the Contemporary Art Fair gathers together some of the most important modern and contemporary art galleries on the international scene. All media are represented: painting, sculpture, photography, installations, videos, performance art and digital arts.
FIAC brings together almost 180 galleries from some 30 countries representing around 4,000 artists from every continent. The 44th fair was held on 19-22 October 2017 at the Grand Palais, Paris.
Mirabaud’s partnership will extend to the "Hors les Murs" ("Beyond the Walls") programmes, which allow artists to present works in public spaces and prestigious Parisian institutions. As a result the iconic Place Vendôme will be home to a major artwork by American artist Oscar Tuazon for half of October 2017.
Mirabaud's involvement in the FIAC art fair is further evidence of its active support for contemporary art and is the ideal complement to the art collection the Group has been building up for the last several years and the various partnerships which connect it with artistic institutions.
Reflecting on mankind's place in the world and engaging with artists are exactly the values that have guided Mirabaud since its foundation nearly 200 years ago.
