Officielle Art Fair will not take place in 2016

2 years ago

The organisers Fiac have postponed this year’s edition of their own satellite fair Officielle which was meant to open in October.

Reed Exhibitions has not yet offered a replacement for the 60 galleries that have already signed up for the 2016 edition of the fair, however it has announced a new offering for its Fiac exhibitors at the Petit Palais.

In an interview with Le Journal des Arts, Fiac’s director Jennifer Flay says that the organisers decided to put the fair on hold because of the “perceived remoteness of the Cité de la Mode et du design”, where Officielle was held, and the high cost of the stands. “While some galleries worked well, many did not make back their costs,” she says.
