More than 5000 guests from the art, fashion and media were at the FIAC’s inaugural party on Wednesday October 5th. Normal when you know that it was an open-bar!
Personally I felt in love at least ten times during my visit (2 times with some artworks). And I can say that the fringe is very trendy this year. The most important is that I saw during the FIAC : Amira Casar, Jane Fonda, Christian Lacroix, Sophie Marceau, Hedi Slimane, Sharon Stone and Beyonce!
To conclude quickly, here is a quotation of Claude Closky (winner of the Marcel Duchamp prize, during the FIAC): “I see two ways of creating a critical distance with the models that govern our daily lives: to oppose them with a new discourse in order to contradict them, or to follow their logic and drive it to absurdity. As an artist, I can choose the second method. I do not want to expound learned theories on society or the media.”
