FIAC 2014, and the others
t the beginning of the year, when the FIAC announced its intention to create an official Fringe, alternative fairs felt that the wind had turned. Understandably,
these mid-sized structures, each featuring 30 to 80 participants, were quick to realise the danger. Cutlog, a very appealing fair, withdrew in the face of this competition. Its director Bruno Hajadj did not want to ‘let the participating galleries down’, considering that ‘the FIAC suffocates us all. In Paris, everything is completely controlled.’ He was also bitter to see a failed attempt to federate the other fringe festivals, despite a promising meeting between the various directors. But their desire to resist and reassert themselves as an opposition force is still alive: ‘We represent between 200 and 300 galleries,’ he says.

‘This year, things turned out badly, but we haven't given up by any means.’ Jennifer Flay, who has run the FIAC since 2003, denies wanting to undermine the development of the fringe fairs that have sprung up around the event over the years – notably the Outsider Art Fair (OAF), dedicated to self-taught artists: the heirs to outsider art. But it is no coincidence that OAF entered the FIAC after a muchremarked appearance at the Venice Biennale. For one selected gallery owner, Christian Berst, ‘the Fringe is not the FIAC, but a product of it.’ However, he does not deny that it's a good thing, seeing it as a sign of a recognition he equates with that of the ethnic arts. He will be showing a range of artists, with a few works by contemporaries like ‘Plny, who now has work at the Musée National d'Art Moderne’, and ‘classic artists like Carlo Zinelli, who is present in all the major collections’. The dealer will also be highlighting discoveries like the Italian artist Belucci. Prices vary between €1,500 and €15,000, says Berst, who will not take part in the OAF, and is opening a gallery in New York on 30 October. However, the Air de Paris gallery, highly specialised in contemporary art, will be there to
