The 35th edition of FIAC will be held from 23 to 26 October 2008 in the Grand Palais, the Cour Carrée
of the Louvre and in the Tuileries gardens.
The 2008 edition of FIAC reaffirms the strong points of its identity: a general interest fair that brings
together modern art, contemporary art, emerging art creation and design. It is an international fair in
which France occupies a priviledged position. It is also a Parisian event in the heart of the capital, held
in exceptional sites organised in close collaboration with all of the key players of the artistic scene as well
as museums, art centres, private collections and the market itself. And finally, it is an innovative fair
that, for the first time this year, offers a series of artists’ performances organised in collaboration with
the Louvre and the Jeu de Paume.
FIAC 2008 will present 189 modern and contemporary art galleries as well as design galleries.
72 galleries are French, that is approximately 39%, 117 galleries (about 61%) are from abroad, representing
21 countries, the highest number coming from Germany, the United States and Italy.
42 galleries are first–time exhibitors.
In the Grand Palais are 113 modern and contemporary art galleries as well as design galleries, the sector
that FIAC was the first international fair to have included in 2004.

during the week of FIAC: Futurism at the Centre Pompidou, Emil Nolde, Picasso and the Old Masters at
the Grand Palais, Mantegna at the Louvre, Raoul Dufy at the Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris,
carte blanche given to Jeremy Deller at the Palais de Tokyo, Mélik Ohanian at Plateau, Lee Miller and
Jordi Colomer at Jeu de Paume, Daniel Buren at the Musée Picasso, César at the Fondation Cartier, and
last but not least Jeff Koons at Versailles.
The energy of the Parisian market parallels this wealth: very strong shows in galleries, numerous “off ”
fairs, and of course the initiatives organised by several private collectors, corporate collections and art

For the third year in a row, FIAC and the Louvre Museum jointly present a program of contemporary
art installations in the heart of the Tuileries Garden. This year, the growing interest among galleries
and artists, as well as the exceptional context of the garden, has allowed us to bring together seventeen
outdoor projects including monumental installations, performance works and sculptures. They come to life
when the public interacts with them in the garden’s pathways, bushes and lawns.

“Frise”, 2008
Project for Fiac 2008 by M/M (Paris)
In continuation of their collaboration with FIAC, M/M (Paris), since 2005, has been working on a special
project that today includes 40 visuals.
Each of these images shows a site that can be empty or peopled, in a city or in the countryside and
identifiable or ambiguous. These photographs, taken by M/M (Paris) throughout the world, constitute a
kind of archive “in progress”.
The purpose of these images, which are part of their project with FIAC, is to create a link with a simple
message—date, place, a short text such as “rendez-vous in Paris” or “in the centre of Paris”, or even simply
the logo of FIAC (which was created by M/M in 2005). They have a specific context that is determined less
by what the message says than by where it is distributed, its format, what it is printed on and who receives
These visuals might have appeared on the cover of a handout that was created for distribution at the Venice
Biennale, on an invitation to a reception in New York, on a page of publicity for English, American or
Swiss magazines, on timetables at Roissy or for the Eurostar, on “sucettes”, the City of Paris’s advertising
billboards or on the canvas on the Grand Palais façade, among others.
This cumulative approach functions in a fluid and intuitive manner, according to various means of
communication that include paradox, irony, discrepancy and multiple meanings, often appearing in
opposition to what seems evident. Several specific themes are developed throughout the actions. Certain
images are quite clear (for example the Statue of Liberty, along the Seine, seen from the back and the front,
the Luxembourg Garden, spare parts photographed in a studio … or different means of transportation
such as a car, vaporetto, airplane, barge, tramway, taxi or sea liner). Others are secret, and are meant to
remain that way. For example, some images were taken from the windows of important personalities in
the world of contemporary art. But did the people involved know that, or did they just recognize the view
from their office or house?
This fourth year provides an occasion to unveil a project that was, up until now, so diffracted that it was
imperceptible. In order to understand it completely it would have been necessary to have read all the art
magazines in the world, been in all of the categories of invited guests, received all of the invitations sent to
them, possessed badges for exhibitors, collectors, professionals, artists and journalists, purchased every
kind of entry ticket, and arrived simultaneously in Paris by train and airplane.
The idea is to assemble everything that was distributed, to bring all of the elements that were used for
FIAC’s external communication inside the fair and to unify formats that until now had been differentiated
as much as possible…
30 images were chosen, transferred to a 400 x 300 poster and placed side by side to create a landscape that
is longer than 400 metres. This frieze occupies spaces that haven’t been used since the Grand Palais was
reopened. It is situated on the balconies that go around the nave, 9 metres from the ground. Inaccessible
to the public, halfway between the floor with all the galleries and the omnipresent sky diffused through the
glass ceiling of the Grand Palais, the images form a continuous silent, familiar and enigmatic landscape.
This project was realised thanks to the support of Sony, who through 20 VAIO computers placed
throughout FIAC, offers an exclusive, numbered and limited series screensaver that presents an
animated version of the “Frise”.

Semi–finalists for the eighth edition:
Michel Blazy
Born in 1966 in Monaco, lives and works in Paris
Nominated by: Marc–Olivier Walher, Director of the Palais de Tokyo
Galerie Art:Concept, Paris
A sculptor working with unusual materials, the art of Michel Blazy has evolved with his works in feathers and
foam. Fascinated by organic materials, perishable goods and dried foods, his creations are based on themes
that reflect the human condition: death, decay and putrefication. For example, Michel Blazy has exhibited
decaying tomatoes, evidence of Man’s inevitablle fate, but also of the beauty and the strangeness of the
constantly changing natural world. He also mixes humor in his culture as is reflected with his sculptures of
flashy light–yellow soy noodles, poodles made of shaving cream and a unique sheet made of wallpaper and
Stéphane Calais
Born in 1967 in Arras, lives and works in Paris
Nominated by: Jean de Loisy, Exhibtion curator, art critic
Galerie Jocelyn Wolff, Paris
Stéphane Calais is an atypical figure in contemporary art. The artist is proud of his dilattante approach
and numerous influences. Tales, legends and popular icons are re–intepreted and integrated into a
universe in which abstraction and figuration co–exist. Stéphane Calais claims that “… my ‘atypical’ label
surprised me for a long time. I imagine my pieces efficently and in relation to my committments. Naturally,
drawing, my basic artistic instrument, allows me to navigate the different areas that it crosses — that is
to say, everywhere. The standard questions arise from the medium in which I am working (painting, wall
drawings and collages of objects or images…). It is their proximity that creates the tensions, ellipses or
shortcuts that also arise when they are brought together.”
Laurent Grasso
Born 1972 in Mulhouse, lives and works in Paris
Nominated by: Michel Gauthier, Art critic
Galerie Chez Valentin, Paris
Whether he (re)activates more or less identifiable forms from our over–controlled society, or whether
he deforms the cinematographic techniques and conventions that influence our collective imagination,
Laurent Grasso creates environments with a strong narrative potential that mixes ancestral fears, scientific
phemomena and meaning contemporary myths. Michel Gauthier believes that Grasso’s poetics are created
by the tension between two paranoias – etymologically between two positions beyond truth – that we
are threatend by in our information–saturated world. In less than a decade, Grasso’s works employing
diverse means (film, light, sound, models, engravings, etc.) have disturbed our aesthetic conscience and the
certitudes of contemporary viewpoints.
Didier Marcel
Born in 1961 in Besançon, lives and works in Dijon
Nominated by: Xavier Douroux, Director of the Dijon Consortium
Galerie Michel Rein, Paris
Didier Marcel’s artistic approach, begun in the 80s, is centred on the idea of opposition and contrast.
By developing an enlarged sculptural practice, he proposes a singular vision of space. The spectator no
longer goes around the scupture, but rather the entire installation encloses him in the exhibition space.
By changing the dimensions of objects from daily life, Didier Marcel overturns the order of things and
their localisation in a social space. He allows us to imagine our relationship with the landscape, which has
become an idealised reality, in a different way. This can be seen, for example, with the architectural models
or natural elements (birch logs, trees made of material) that he uses in his work.

A brief summary of ADIAF –
The ADIAF – Association for the International Diffusion of French Art under the law of 1901 (non–
profit association) – is the largest group of private contemporary art collectors in France today. Created
in 1994, the association mobilises the energy of its 220 members around its ambitious goal to support
the French art scene, to encourage new artisitc forms and to enable a wide public to understand the
vitality of contemporary artworks. Thus, in 2000 it established the MARCEL DUCHAMP PRIZE,
the first prize created by collectors to encourage the recognition of new talent and to accompany the
international development of these artists. Today this prize is considered the French equivalent of the
British “Turner Prize”. Six aritsts have been distinguished so far: Thomas Hirschhorn (2000–2001),
Dominique Gonzalez–Foerster (2002), Mathieu Mercier (2003), Carole Benzaken (2004), Claude Closky
(2005), Philippe Mayaux (2006) and Tatiana Trouvé (2007).

Following the success of the 2006 and 2007 editions, for the third year in a row FIAC and the Fondation
d’entreprise Ricard collaborate on the Young Curators Invitational (YCI) program.
YCI’s objective is to bring to Paris, during the week of FIAC, a group of five promising figures among
the emerging generation of intellectuals, critics and exhibition curators. Selected from proposals made by
international insitutions, FIAC and the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard organise four days of meetings with
personalities of the Parisian art scene.
In 2007, a series of more than 20 meetings allowed the YCI participants to exchange ideas with numerous
artists (Mario Garcia–Torres, Laurent Montaron, etc.), to compare their experiences with curators
(Stéphanie Moisdon, Christine Macel, etc.) and to have the privileged advantage of discovering many
exhibition venues (Fondation Kadist, CAC Brétigny, Palais de Tokyo, The Swiss Cultural Center, etc.).
The 2008 YCI participants are:
Maria Garzia (Rome)
Virginija Januskeviciute (Vilnius)
Chessia Kelley (New York)
Mariangela Mendez (Bogota)
Fredrik Svensk (Gothenburg)
They were individually recommended by the members of the selection committee composed of:
Yves Aupetitallot – Le Magasin
Nicolas Bourriaud – Tate Britain
Ann Demeester – De Appel
John Rajchman – Columbia University
Marc–Olivier Walher – Palais de Tokyo
FIAC and the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard are committed to following the professional progression
of the YCI program participants by offering them the chance to discover under ideal conditions the
lively artisitc scene and to meet the actors in the art world who have come to Paris during the fair.
Maria Garzia (Italy)
Maria Garzia received a specialist degree in the History of Contemporary Art at “La Sapienza” University,
Rome with her thesis on “Brown Boveri”– the result of a period of study in Milan. After studying for one
year at the Sorbonne, Paris, she participated in the activities of various institutions in Rome including
the Fondazione Baruchello and the Fondazione Volume! Her main interest is the relationship between art
and public space. This interest developed during her involvement in the project “Tra–Monti” organized
by the Associazione 270gg and through the realization of a project of public art, “L’impercettibilità della
visione”, with the artist Marina Fulgeri and the Associazione Wunderkammern. She has recently finished
her international training as a curator at the Ecole du Magasin, Grenoble. At present she is working on a
publication project which developed through research conducted on the situation of curators in Italy.
Virginija Januskeviciute (Lithuania)
Virginija Januskeviciute is currently back at work as a curator at the Contemporary Art Centre (CAC) in
Vilnius after completing the Appel Curatorial programme in Amsterdam. The programme has culminated
in 2008 with an exercise of site–responsive curating, “Master Humphrey’s Clock” and “F.R. David – The
Book of Intentions” published as part of it. She has studied History and Theory of Art at Vilnius Academy
of Arts before joining the curatorial team of CAC in 2002. She has been engaged in the making of several
large scale international exhibitions, individual artists’ projects, shows of young artists, publications
and, crucially, the CAC TV – the CAC’s weekly project for television (2004–2007). Among other recent
projects are a production of “Vilnius Is Burning”, consisting of an exhibition in Torino and a book (curated
by Raimundas Malasauskas), curating “The Joy is Not Mentioned” project by Egle Budvytyte, Goda
Budvytyte and Ieva Miseviciute for the CAC and co–organisation of “iMagine” seminar in Vilnius, one of
the Public Preparation events of the Biennale of Young Artists in Tallinn, in 2007.
Chessia Kelley (United States)
Chessia Kelley received an undergraduate degree from Georgetown University with a major in Art
History and minors in Italian and Political Science. She is currently completing a Masters in Modern Art
at Columbia University in New York. In 2007 she completed an internship at The Peggy Guggenheim
Collection during the 52nd Venice Biennale. She also served as curatorial intern at The Contemporary
Arts Center of Cincinnati acting as a research assistant to Toby Kamps, Senior Curator, Cynthia Goodman,
Interim Director, and current Director Raphaella Platow. She is currently working as Curatorial Assistant
to Independent Curator Dr. Cynthia Goodman, assisting in the assembly of a photography exhibition at
The New Orleans Museum of Art entitled The Art of Caring. Chessia recently curated an exhibition at
MurMur Gallery in Cincinnati entitled The Today Show.
Mariangela Mendez (Colombia)

FIAC is organising a series of three conference round-tables programs, in collaboration with three
– “Producing art/from private vision to public space”, part of the Global Art Forum, in partnership with
Art Dubaï, round–table discussion on 23 October, at 5pm, in the Auditorium of the Grand Palais – Public
entrance – avenue Winston Churchill – 75008 Paris
– “Collector/Collection: artists’ publications”; in partnership with the Artisbooks Salon and Centre
Pompidou, round–table discussion on Friday 24 at 4pm at the Centre Pompidou – place Georges
Pompidou – 75004 Paris
– “Performances : creating events”, in partnership with 104, round– table debate Saturday 25th at 104 at
6pm – 104 rue d’Aubervilliers – 75019 Paris
The term “performance” has no historical equivalent among the styles of artistic disciplines. In fact, it
emerged at a time when the discipinary classification of artistic practices gave way to a terminology that
was based on the way art was produced: one has to think of “art performance” (as the British call it) in
the same way as conceptual art or Minimalism.
The way the performance is carried out, in this sense, places the work inside the event itself.
As part of FIAC and its performance series, this debate to be held at 104 intends to discuss contemporary
methods of “doing something” in performance, based on various practices that exist in different fields
(literature, visual arts, living arts), in order to identify different types of events.
For the third year in a row, the commission of the CNAP, responsable for acquiring contemporary artworks for the
State, will meet during the 35th edition of FIAC.
At this time, the CNAP will allocate its 400,000 euro budget to purchases for the collections of the Fonds National d’Art
Contemporain (FNAC). This action confirms the support of the Visual Arts Delegation of the Ministry of Culture and
Communication to the French artmarket.
In 2007, works by the following artists were acquired:
Dennis Adams, Eleanor Antin, Kader Attia, Robert Barta, Vincent Beaurin, Inaki Bonillas, Tony Brown, Isabelle
Cornaro, Tony Cragg, Matali Crasset, Wim Delvoye, Véronique Ellena, Mounir Fatmi, Ceal Floyer, Joanne Greenbaum,
Camille Henrot, Changha Hwang, Armand Jalut, Véronique Joumard, Julius Koller, Frédéric Lecomte, Tobias Lehner,
Frédérique Lucien, Arnaud Maguet, Christian Marclay, Ivan Navarro, Joao Onofre, Alexandre Perigot, Guillaume
Pinard, Philippe Starck, Catherine Van Eetvelde, Danh Vo, Pavel Wolberg, Virginie Yassef.
The acquired works join the FNAC, the most important international collection of contemporary art in France.
The CNAP is responsable for their management and distribution throughout France and abroad. Formed
essentially by purchases and commissions from the CNAP in acting for the State, the collection has grown
since the beginning of the 80s with more than 20,000 works in the fields of visual arts, photography, decorative
arts and design.
An active policy of loans and deposits ensures that these works are exhibited publicly. Thus, every year, more than 500
works are entrusted to museums, government offices and embassies. At the same time, more than 3,500 works are leant
for temporary exhibitions in France or abroad. Recent visual art acquistions have been exhibited in Grenoble, Nantes,
Marseille, Rouen, Lyon, Amiens and Rochechouart as well as in Geneva, Sao Paulo, Mexico, Miami and Bucarest.
The design collections have been shown in Taipei, Seoul and Saint–Étienne, and in 2004 in Paris, with an important
transfer of 2,000 objects. Major monographic or thematic photographic series have been regularily presented abroad,
biennales held in Moscow, Bamako and China as well as in exhibitions in Séoul, Bangkok, Spain, Portugal and
The choices will be announced at the close of the commision during the fair and the acquired works indicated to the
public on a note card.
The National Consultative Art Commission (visual arts division) which is responsable for acquisitions is named every
three years and composed of 5 members representing the State and 9 qualified personalities, including 2 artists. It
meets at the beginning of the fair after having visited all of the sites. The choices are made in accordance with the
orientation of the Ministry of Culture and Communication: to give particular attention to young artists, to purchase
outstanding pieces by established artists in order to assemble a significant number of their works, and to be open to
different trends in international art.
The members of the “visual arts” acquisition commission 2006 – 2008:

State Street proudly supports the 35th annual FIAC
At State Street, the world’s leading provider of financial services to institutional investors, we believe
that leadership carries with it a responsibility for good corporate citizenship. That is why we are a global
patron of the arts and why we are proud to be the primary sponsor of the FIAC 2008 in Paris, a city that
is not only home to some of the world’s greatest art, but also to more than 400 of our employees and many
of our customers.
As a global company, State Street has a long history of striving for innovation in servicing our customers
in France and around the world. As such, we believe we share a common interest in forward thinking and
ingenuity with many of the artists that display at the FIAC. Instead of working with color and shape,
however, our innovation comes in the form of new products and services. Whether launching the world’s
first exchange-traded fund 15 years ago or an industry-leading over-the-counter derivatives servicing
platform in August, State Street provides its customers with the tools they need to be successful.
We are very excited to help bring the masterpieces of outstanding artists from around the world to the 35th
annual FIAC, an event that is as committed to showcasing some of the world’s greatest art as we are to
ensuring the success of our customers.
Congratulations to the many artists on display this year and enjoy the exhibition!

“On Monday 6 October 2008, Air France, the airline which continues to “make the sky the
best place on earth” will be launching a new advertising campaign designed by the agency
BETC EURO RSCG and directed by photographer Camilla Akrans.
“Made up of over one hundred visuals, this tactical corporate campaign will be
released in several countries in the press, on billboards and in 8-second videos
targeting news websites.”
“In a context of heightened global competition, Air France has decided to take measures to reassert its
difference, its singularity and its leadership. Air travel must remain the world of enthusiasm that it was for
its pioneers”, said Francois Brousse, Air France Vice President Corporate Communications.
As a precursor, Air France developed a new approach to air transport that today enables it to offer its
increasingly international and demanding customers a unique travel experience. All the airline’s products
and services are designed for one single purpose: to enable passengers to re-energize themselves so that
they feel refreshed after their flight, and have been able to transform time lost into time regained.
Each of the 13 corporate campaign visuals poetically illustrates one area of inflight service: comfort,
refinement, attentive crew, the quality of meals and entertainment.
This campaign metaphorically illustrates the well-being felt by the passenger, who is the main character of
the campaign, in the various aspects of service. Air France does not just talk about well-being, but invites
its passengers to experience it.”
Thirst of communication
The Akwacom came up with a new and creative project which offers you one of the best opportunities for
the promotion of your company as well as for the transfer of multiple messages to your colleagues or your
clients. This innovation consists of the creation of an original bottle of water of 33cl which allows to bring
freshness and to personalize the communication within the company and its customers. This bottle of
high quality water, being esthetic and compact, could be useful for various occasions such as conventions,
seminars, salons, operation marketing or launching of a new product and much more.

Giorgio Armani pays tribute to ultimate sensuality and extreme femininity with the
creation of a trilogy of fragrances, ONDE.
Inspired by the rituals of the Orient, ONDE offers an imaginative, seductive and intoxicating journey for the senses.
ONDE an echo, a vibration that remains.
ONDE Mystere, ONDE Vertige, ONDE Extase ...
A lost memory, a fantasy...Each setting represents an exotic kingdom, each setting leaves a scent whose lingering notes cause the air
to resonate, making this woman’s passing an unforgettable experience.
These fragrances are writing a new chapter in perfumery. « Neo-oriental » fragrances, reinterpretations of classic orientals.
A contemporary vision that defines a pure and vibrant architecture of light in which the opulence, density and lingering notes of the
fragrance are given full expression.
From the gates of Asia ...
ONDE Mystère
Inspired by a fantastical Middle East, ONDE Mystère, a fragrance as fascinating as an enigma, a blend of vitality and sensuality like
the incomparable gestures of the mysterious women of the Harem with their kohl-lined gaze.
The MUSKY ORIENTAL is reinventing the attraction of musk with a surprisingly light, radiant touch over a new olfactory signature
with invigorating incense and mesmerizing accords of amber and benzoin.
The traditional musk-amber heart, a store of secrets inherited from the Fine Perfumery, is given a feminine touch with soft and
enchanting Moroccan Rose buds.
To quicken the pulse even further, it is nourished by the captivating tension between the stimulation of incense and the intriguing
mysterious richness of vanilla absolute and benzoin. A final dash of spices completes the spell.
To the origins of the Kama Sutra...
ONDE Vertige
A fragrance inspired by India, the India of temples and palaces, opulent, breathtaking, boundless India...
The FLORAL ORIENTAL is a bold, modern interpretation of an oriental fragrance, in which the captivating trace of sensual
frangipani flower, caressed by black liquorice, is set ablaze by patchouli. The apparent innocence of the flowers conceals an experience
of supreme sensory intoxication.
The sunny frangipani flower is sharpened by a vibrant burst of pittosporum and jasmine petals. It blends with addictive, velvety, soft
black liquorice. Intense, sensual patchouli inflames the lingering notes.
To the kingdom of the Rising Sun...
ONDE Extase
A fragrance that takes its inspiration from the art of the geishas, who know how to weave time and transform a fleeting instant into
an eternity, fatally bewitching.
The WOODY ORIENTAL adds a modern luminosity to the classic oriental structure. Cedar creates a new woody-powdery addiction
that is infinitely distinguished.
The profusion of sophisticated and dangerously sensual, powdery mimosa is illuminated by Egyptian Jasmine and narcissus
It is enlivened with a spicy burst of pink pepper and Sicilian Bergamot and then draped in the entrancing notes of cedar, heightened
by musk and sesame absolute.
A trilogy of fragrances, an empire for the senses.

programme of support and commitment to sponsorship of the arts.
Whether in New York, Frankfurt, London or Hong Kong, our policy in this field is voluntary and follows
three main lines. Firstly, we own a collection of contemporary art that was started back in 1990 and now
comprises some 1,000 works. Secondly, we are long-standing sponsors of the major cultural institutions in
the various countries in which we are established. And lastly, we are involved locally in numerous charitable
cultural ventures benefiting the underprivileged.
We strive, through these different ventures, to get members of staff involved. In so doing they have the
opportunity to get to know one another better and to gain access to new forms of artistic expression. In
this way, we regularly organise art exhibitions and invite artists and critics to speak at events held in our
offices throughout the world.
This commitment of ours is a reflection of values dear to our partnership, which goes back to 1802, and
allows us to demonstrate the qualities of creativity, innovation and openness to others, qualities that are

From 11 October to 10 January 2009, the fourth installment of the Antidote cycle of
exhibitions will feature works by eleven French artists at the Galerie des Galeries
The artists are Saâdane Afif, Wilfrid Almendra, Davide Balula, Michel Blazy, Delphine Coindet, Sophie Dubosc, Marc
Etienne, Cyprien Gaillard, Laurent Grasso, Nicolas Moulin and Clément Rodzielski.
Once again this year the Galeries Lafayette is continuing its support of the French art scene by presenting a selection
of works that have come into Ginette Moulin and Guillaume Houzé’s collection over the past twelve months.
Over the years then, marked by these two collectors’ desire to form coherent groups of works that are representative
of the world of often emerging artists, a landscape has slowly taken shape. In it one can make out notably Saâdane
Afif, Michel Blazy, Delphine Coindet, Laurent Grasso and Nicolas Moulin, who have already been spotted in years past
and who are joined this year by such new faces as Wilfrid Almendra, Davide Balula and Cyprien Gaillard, along with
a few genuine discoveries like Sophie Dubosc, Marc Etienne and Clément Rodzielski. Will one perhaps recognize the
portrait of a generation through these purely subjective choices someday?
This year as well, anxious to play a role in the thinking about French artists’ place in the international scene, the
Galeries Lafayette hopes to carry forward the recurrent debate about the “so-called” decline of French culture that
some have asserted.
With the Journal des Arts, roundtable discussions bringing together both French and foreign professionals (artistes,
collectors, gallery owners, officials of art institutions) have been scheduled for the first weeks of summer 2008 on a
range of themes: French art and exporting – What visibility for the French art scene? – What renewal for collectors?
– How to energize the art market in France? – Where is art criticism now?
A summary of these debates will be published in a special edition of the Journal des Arts due out on 19 September
2008. This dossier will also be made available in a bilingual French and English off-print at the Antidote show and
during the FIAC international art fair, with which Group Galeries Lafayette is continuing its partnership.
Begun in 2005, the Ginette Moulin / Guillaume Houzé Collection boasts today some 250 works by 30 artists, in particular
Saâdane Afif, Didier Marcel Mathieu Mercier and Tatiana Trouvé, as well as a certain number of foreign artists now,
such as Ryan Gander, Peter Coffin, David Noonan and Rupert Nurfolk.
* The exhibition Antidote was initiated in 2005 by Guillaume Houzé (the great-great-grandson of Théophile Bader,
the founder of the department store) with the support of his grandmother Madame Ginette Moulin (chair of the
supervisory board of Group Galeries Lafayette).

The Figaro Group
This is a group that looks ahead, and breaks new ground both in print and digital areas.
Its flagship is, of course, Le Figaro, the first general French daily newspaper. With its 180 year exerience,
growing and moving with its time, it is closely linked to current affairs.
Every day, its editorial staff dedicates itself to various themes: significant events, trends and prospects of
an ever changing world.
FIAC is one major opportunitie that can’t be missed.
Because art anchors creation in our evolution, and because FIAC brings symbolic international
galleries together, Le Figaro – as it has in the past - is happy to bring its support to this major event in
contemporary art.
Le Groupe Figaro is the first press group online.
Since June 2008, Le is the first French news website.

For the fifth year running, the Fonds municipal d’art contemporain de la Ville de Paris (Fmac – Paris
municipal contemporary art collection) is presenting its 51 new acquisitions made in 2007 at the
City of Paris – Contemporary Art stand. It is the only public-sector collection exhibited at the Fiac
(international contemporary art fair). Through this initiative, Paris City Hall further strengthens
its support for creativity and artists.
The Fmac in 2007, 51 new works of art
Acquisitions exploring urban and political themes
In 2007, the Fmac added to its collection 51 works by 38 artists, acquired from 22 galleries and 9 artists. The
works are inspired by urban and political themes.
The annual acquisition commission brings together a panel of qualified members and members of the Paris
City Hall cultural affairs division in equal proportions. The panel reviews the proposals made by its members
and by artists.
The invited members of the 2007 selection panel were Paula Aisemberg, director of the Maison Rouge foundation,
Sylvie Boulanger, director of the Cneai – Centre national de l’estampe et de l’art imprimé (national centre for prints and printed art), Anne
Dressen, conservation manager at the ARC/Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris (Paris municipal modern art museum) and Charlotte
Laubard, director of the CAPC musée d’Art contemporain de Bordeaux (Bordeaux contemporary art museum).
The Fmac, an original instrument of Paris City Hall’s cultural policy
The Fmac expresses the support that Paris City Hall gives to French and international artists living or exhibiting in Paris, to
the promotion of contemporary art and to awareness-raising initiatives involving all sectors of society.
As early as 1816, Paris City Hall launched an original initiative that involved commissioning and purchasing works of art from living
artists to encourage creativity and furnish the City Hall and arrondissement town hall buildings. This collection, known as Collections
municipales, was renamed Fonds municipal d’art contemporain (Fmac) in 1987.
The Fmac boasts 20,000 works including 3,000 contemporary pieces, intended to be exhibited in municipal buildings. Paris is the only
city in the world to own such a large collection and so broadly open to those who live, work or visit the capital.
Contemporary art at the heart of the city to make it more accessible to all
In all of Paris’ arrondissements, the collection is almost entirely exhibited in 450 public-service buildings and facilities (Paris City Hall, town
halls, schools, libraries, nurseries, academies, school canteens, hospitals, etc.). The Fmac has installed 4,410 works in Paris since 2001.
In 2007, the Fmac conducted a proactive artistic policy:
> At the Conservatoire à rayonnement régional de Paris (regional arts academy), 8th arrondissement: Adam Adach, Christophe Cuzin,
Jean-Louis Garnell, Véronique Joumard.
> At the town hall of the 2nd arrondissement: Raed Bawayah, Mircea Cantor, Olga Kisseleva, Bruno Serralongue, Lidwien van de Ven.
> At the town hall of the 13th arrondissement: Julien Audebert, Edouard Boyer, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Loris Gréaud, Chourouk Hriech,
Vincent Lamouroux.
> In the Charlotte Delbo and Marguerite Audoux libraries: Marcelline Delbecq, Angela Detanico and Rafael Lain, Malachi Farrell, Bill
Fontana, Daniel Lainé, Audrey Nervi and Jean-Michel Sanejouand.
This unique way of presenting the works enables enhanced interaction between them and people in their daily lives. You only have to borrow
books, go to school or to the academy, have lunch in the canteen or sort out an administrative formality to come across works of art.
Exhibitions to make best use of the collection
The Fmac loans works to many national- and international-scale exhibitions and itself organises exhibitions to highlight the collection.
In 2007-2008, it organised Intrusions au Petit Palais: le Fonds municipal d’art contemporain. Alongside the museum’s permanent
collections, 122,000 visitors viewed 50 works of contemporary art.

Partner of the FIAC 2008, MINI this year is exhibiting the Robert Combas Clubman.
From October 23 to 26 the 35th International Contemporary Art Fair (Foire Internationale d’Art
Contemporain - the FIAC) will be held in Paris. This event, which MINI is supporting for the 2nd
consecutive year, is characterized by the extensive participation of international galleries and by the
The MINI, synonymous with innovation, boldness, difference and character, is itself part of the world of
art. What could be more appropriate than the MINI to accompany the FIAC, international center of the
cultural trends of the 21st century?
Avant-garde and non conformist, the MINI will be the official car of the FIAC 2008 with, this year, the
surprising Robert Combas Clubman … an amazing work created by the artist in a single evening, and
which will be presented at the FIAC as of 23rd October at the Grand Palais.
Robert Combas, the “Figuration Libre” artist
Born in Lyon on 25 May 1957, Robert Combas works with images of daily life into which he integrates
historical and mythological references. Creator of the movement that Ben baptized “LA FIGURATION
LIBRE”, bringing together Rémi Blanchard, François Boisrond, Robert Combas and Hervé Di Rosa, his
work is characterized by an extreme liberty. He focuses on society, violence, sexuality, people who suffer,
their moments of joy, their pettiness, their greatness ...
His sources of inspiration include rock music, of which the artist is a connoisseur, popular images, children’s
books, school textbooks, anything constituting a universally accessible popular culture.
Why make the Clubman into a work of art?
“The Clubman, with its character and unique design, is a symbol of contemporary art which, today,
expresses itself in a wide variety of universes”, answers Emmanuel Bret, Director of the MINI in France.
MINI, the brand precursor of trends, and Combas, the libertarian artist, are brought together through
this unique concept. The new MINI Clubman, infinitely customizable, is the very expression of freedom, of
absolute design. The only asymmetrical vehicle on the market, it can claim originality and exclusiveness.
A unique concept, a unique work.

About Moleskine®
Culture, imagination, memory, travel, personal identity. Moleskine is a brand identifying a family of
notebooks, planners and guidebooks: versatile and essential companions both in everyday life and for
special occasions, becoming an integral part of the personality of each of us.
The Moleskine brand was born in 1997, reproducing the legendary notebook of great artists and thinkers
of the past two centuries, from Vincent Van Gogh to Pablo Picasso, from Ernest Hemingway to Bruce
Chatwin: a trusty, pocket-sized travel companion, the anonymous black notebook was the faithful keeper
of sketches, notes, stories and tips before they became famous pictures or pages of well-loved books.
Since January 1, 2007 Moleskine is also the name of the company which manufactures and distributes the
legendary notebook and its many descendants.
Today, Moleskine accompanies the creative efforts and the imaginary of our time: it is a symbol of modernday nomadism, closely connected with the digital world through a network of websites, blogs, online groups
and virtual archives.
Detour is a travelling group show featuring the Moleskine notebooks designed by internationally recognized
artists, architects, film directors, graphic designers, illustrators, and writers. Detour is a Moleskine project
supporting the non-profit lettera27 foundation. Previous Detour exhibitions took place in Paris, New York
and London. Through the changing exhibition locations, Detour is always attracting new artists to the
project, especially creative artists that are particularly related to the cities where exhibitions take place.
The notebooks displayed during all Detour exhibitions are permanently shown on the Moleskine website.
A single post is dedicated to each author, with photo, video, and biography.Curator: Raffaella Guidobono.

Neuflize OBC reinforces its action in favour of the contemporary artistic creation by
reaffirming its partnership with the Fiac (International Contemporary Art Fair) in 2008.
As the sponsor of the spectacular Monumenta art event from the beginning, incarnated in 2008 by Richard
Serra at the Grand Palais, Neuflize OBC returns, for the second time this year, to the magnificent setting
of this glass and steel vault to celebrate this essential meeting of contemporary art.
The partnership with the Fiac consolidates its position of reference sponsor for the visual arts in France.
This initiative complements its sponsorship policy characterized by dynamism and innovation in the service
of the contemporary creation and of the valorisation of cultural heritage.
It is also for Neuflize OBC a mean to keep its eyes opened on the world, through the representation of
artistic diversity and creativity, and to question the values characterizing the private banker.
The Neuflize OBC sponsorship policy sets out to combine the culture of the past with that of the
future, to associate the visual arts and the cinema, and to coordinate its actions with those of
Neuflize Vie, its insurance company.
The bank’s sponsorship policy…
Neuflize OBC is often quoted as a reference in cultural sponsorship in France, notably for visual arts
and the cinema. Its field of intervention includes partnerships with prestigious institutions, both for
exhibitions and for major artistic events. Its choices get organized around supports in the creation as in
the development of the cultural heritage.
Choices reflecting the values of a leading bank…
The actions carried out by Neuflize OBC are at one and the same time proof of a rigorous, long-term
commitment to quality projects and an open-minded and innovative encouragement of promising creative
initiatives geared to the future. The priorities enshrined in the bank’s sponsorship policy also illustrate
the recent combination of two key identities dating back several hundred years and focusing on private
management services, with a special focus on families with roots in the French industrial sector and often
with a reputation as art lovers, or on professionals from the world of cinema and communication drawn
from all parts of the country.
A coherent sponsorship policy…
Neuflize OBC also shares its engagements with its insurance company, Neuflize Vie, which has opted to
focus on contemporary, photographic and videographic images through partnerships of various kinds, like
its durable contribution to Jeu de Paume and MEP museums.
Some examples of actions in 2008:
Nuit des Musées / Direction of French Museums/may 2008, Monumenta Richard Serra/ Ministry of
Culture and communication /may 2008; Cinéfondation / Cannes Film Festival 2008, ParisCinéma / july
2008; Prix du Dessin Contemporain Fondation Daniel et Florence Guerlain/ march 2009…

POMMERY committed to Art since 1836
Maison Pommery has been a major player in the world of Art since 1836
Pommery has always been involved in the patronage of the arts. Thanks to Louise Pommery who invented
“Corporate Patronage” by donating “The Gleaners” by Millet to the Musée d’Orsay, with the bas-reliefs
by the sculptor Navlet hewn from the very chalk in the majestic cellars of the Pommery Domaine in Reims
or the commissioning of Emile Gallet to make one of the biggest casks in the world for the Universal
Exhibition in 1904.
Pommery is committed to contemporary creation and, more especially, to artists through the medium of
the Expériences Pommery, monumental exhibitions of contemporary art, which attract more than 100,000
visitors every year to the chalk pits at the Pommery Domaine in Reims.
Pommery is the partner of major museums like the Centre Georges Pompidou but also of major events in
the world of art today like the Fiac exhibition. Pommery had already forged serious and deep ties with Fiac
and we are happy to return to them, after a few years interruption, to ensure that Champagne, Creation,
Artists and Happiness can continue their never-ending journey.

The fifth major exhibition of contemporary art presented at the Pommery Domaine, “L’art en Europe”
takes stock, in the enlarged EU, of the state of European creation, the trends, the thoughts, the actors. To
be as close as possible to the reality of this diverse artistic scene, the Pommery Domaine and the BeauxArts magazine invited the main contemporary art journals in Europe to each select two of the best young
artists in their country. About 50 artists and their works, representing the vitality of 27 national scenes,
will feature in the exhibition,
bearing witness to the effervescence and richness of creation made in Europe from 13 June to 31 December

Zumtobel in the World of Light
The Zumtobel Group, leading international supplier of integral, trend-setting lighting solutions for all
professional building-lighting application areas is a partner of the FIAC at the 2008 edition.
Lighting and Modern Art are linked indeed : art needs light to show itself and the light changes perceptions
in reducing or highlighting illuminated objects.
Zumtobel has its own sales organisations in 22 countries and commercial agencies in more than 50
other countries and is a global player in the lighting industry.
Zumtobel’s mission statement is as follows: “We want to use light to create worlds of experience, make
work easier and improve communications and safety while remaining fully aware of our responsibility
to the environment.” Accordingly, Zumtobel offers a comprehensive raft of product lines which include
high-quality luminaires, lighting management systems for an extremely wide range of application areas.
Zumtobel’s strategy is influenced by its determination to rapidly turn the very latest technologies into
market-ready systems, incorporate up-to-date scientific knowledge in well-engineered lighting concepts
and factor in the emotional effects of light.
For many years, Zumtobel’s engagement with light, architecture and art has not only been the company’s
profession, but also an exciting challenge which it has embraced enthusiastically. In cooperation with
artists such as James Turrell, Anish Kapoor, Keith Sonnier, Siegrun Appelt and Olafur Eliasson, Zumtobel
is always tackling challenges which take it close to the frontiers of what is feasible. This creative design
force enables the company to keep on creating worlds of experience – this applies to art and at the same
time describes the aspirations and visions of the international lighting group. Lighting experiences are
always a work of culture, a work of art.
International project partnerships with architects, lighting designers and artists provide abundant
impetus to fuel ongoing innovation. Joint development of project-related customised special solutions is
one important aspect of the firm’s very close relationships with its customers. Zumtobel benefits in turn
from the innovative energy of its partners and the way in which they deploy new technologies and design
elements. The visions of partners can also result in a company discovering completely new dimensions
of possible uses for its products, thereby gaining fresh added insight into its products. Yet another good
reason to strive for challenging and exciting cooperation with as many network partners as possible.
Zumtobel conducts research on the health-promoting effects of light and feeds its research results into
product optimisations in order to provide people with the best possible lighting quality. The energy
efficiency of lighting systems is also becoming ever more important. With its Humanergy Balance lighting
philosophy, Zumtobel has developed a concept which considers both aspects of an integral lighting solution:
lighting quality and energy efficiency.
