This year the French fair FIAC (20–23 October 2016) will expand into the Petit Palais, The Art Newspaper reports. A new section, titled 'On Site', will present a new part of the fair and will take place in the historic 1900 building, located across the road from the Grand Palais which houses the main fair. According to a statement on FIAC's website, ‘On Site will assemble around 20 works that will [fill] the spaces of the Galerie Sud, the Pavillon Sud and the Jardin du Petit Palais, as well as the esplanade in front of the building. This sector enables Fiac galleries to exhibit in unique conditions, in direct proximity to their stands at the Grand Palais, within the remarkable context of the historic Petit Palais’.

Earlier this year, the fair's organisers Reed Exhibitions announced the cancellation of the first edition of FIAC Los Angeles (which was due to open this spring), and the discontinuation of FIAC's satellite fair Officielle after only two editions.
