Suprisingly enough, the Théâtre des Champs Elysées isn't actually on the Champs Elysées itself, but just down the road on the (still very upmarket) Avenue Montaigne. The building is a beautiful example of classic/art deco architecture, classified as a national monument, and contains three auditoria.
Built in 1913 it was originally famous for concerts of scandalous modern classical music such as the world première of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring.
In 1994 an extra floor was added in order to create the Maison Blanche restaurant with its lofty view of the Eiffel Tower (accompanied by similarly vertiginous prices) and 'trendy' White Room, a bar with a summer terrace, DJs and customer striking a suitable pose.
The International Contemporary Art Fair (FIAC), is one of the world's largest art fair for contemporary artists, gallery owners and dealers.
The FIAC brings together 180 international galleries at three sites on Paris’s right bank.
FIAC has solidified its position in the art world in recent years, bringing together a high-profile mix of contemporary art collectors, museum curators and international dealers, and winning international recognition.
