fiac - Cour Caree du Louvre
I went to the FIAC exhibit at the Louvre yesterday. Packed full of people and inside, it was crowded with buyers, voyeurs and tourists looking at contemporary art. There were galleries from all over the world exhibiting their artists. The Prix Marcel Duchamp is located there and the four artists up for the prize were featured. The winner will have an exhibit in the Pompidou Center next year. It is limited to only french artists. The other main stage of the FIAC is at the Grand Palais. What I saw today was really interesting and you felt you were really on the pulse of art that is happening now.
