Contemporary art within everyone’s reach

Founded in 2010, the Foire d’art contemporain (FAC) de Saint-Lambert pursues a dual mission: promoting contemporary art while offering emerging artists an opportunity to showcase their work, and participating in the mediation of contemporary art, mainly through a dynamic educational component.

The FAC takes over Saint-Lambert’s multi-purpose centre every fall. A variety of artworks by some 30 artists are exhibited over a period of four days. The artists take advantage of the occasion to talk with the public about their recent works. Each year, the FAC also pays tribute to a renowned artist and invites a well-known art gallery to display works.

Considered a high-calibre event by the artistic community, the FAC is a friendly annual get-together of artists, collectors and members of the general public. Admission is free, offering art lovers and those who are curious a unique chance to learn more about contemporary art practices or even to purchase an original work.
