On the occasion of FIAC, the international art fair of Paris currently on view through 22 October at the Grand Palais, KALEIDOSCOPE is delighted to present a special collaboration with Galeries Lafayette.

Since 2009 as an official partner of FIAC, the Galeries Lafayette group—also behind the much anticipated Fondation set to open in Paris in 2018—has been supporting emerging art with Secteur Lafayette, a program that highlights ten new generation galleries from around the world.

Exhibiting at Secteur Lafayette this year are: Bernhard, Zürich; Experimenter, Kolkata; Freedman Fitzpatrick, Los Angeles; Gypsum, Cairo; Instituto de Visión, Bogotá; joségarcía, México City; LambdaLambdaLambda, Prishtina; Queer Thoughts, New York; Schloss, Oslo; and Truth and Consequences, Geneva.

This video, created by KALEIDOSCOPE for the 2017 edition of Secteur Lafayette, gives you a behind-the-scene glimpse into the vision, expectations and perspectives of the founders of these exciting young galleries, just days before the opening of FIAC.
