Julian OPIE "Kiera Walking" Anish KAPOOR "Sky Mirror"
If you do not go to the Paris FIAC, you're a dead person, done for, zits, nil, nothing, zero.
This edition of the FOIRE INTERNATIONALE D'ART CONTEMPORAIN will be on this world's "it list" . 194 galleries from 24 countries.
Go, and then we can discuss the subject.
PARIS is becoming the "IT CITY" with it's 4 five stars palaces opening this season, with Larry GAGOSIAN electing Paris for his new Art Gallery, the BIENNALE DES ANTIQUAIRES has been a smashing hit. How good it feels to be "IN".
From 12 am till 8pm from thursday October 21st to sunday October 24, the GRAND PALAIS will open its doors to thousands of the art consumer, to the wannabees, to the queer arty party and to us all ....
Opening at 12 gives you all the time in the world to be wide eyed and to blast your energy down the while concrete alleys of the FIAC , then a stop for lunch would be highly called for; last year we went to THIOU across the Seine to get another bunch of people to see but this year we might have a go at MARKET on the avenue Matignon: rather serious place but very New Yorky.

On your heels again ladies, and we will head to ART ELYSEES on the Champs Elysées and then to SHOW OFF right across.
You're half dead by then and have seen wonders but it isn't over yet; dive into your mat black Phantom just delivered yesterday by the Rolls Royce factory .
Your all white chauffeur will take you for a highly deserved high tea at the CAFE MARLY as you've haven't had enough yet of faces to see ! We all know it's the most tiring day of the year: the FIAC day.
Darjeeling and Oolong have made wonders on you and you're only steps away from la Cour Carrée du Louvre for some young artists .
