Contemporary art can often feel hidden away in exclusive galleries, and inaccessible to the public at large.
But once again this year, the FIAC (International contemporary art fair) has transformed the city of Paris - especially some of its most popular tourist sites - into one big open-air exhibit.
There are works by some of the world's most renowned contemporary artists strewn about the French capital, from the Jardin des Tuileries to the banks of the Seine river, and some particularly impressive feats at Place Vendôme (see link below).
FIAC runs from October 24th to 27th, so if you're in town, whet your appetite with this selection of works on display. If you can't make it, enjoy this virtual stroll around Paris - the outdoor art gallery.
