Parisians, let’s get in gear. Your city is currently host to a smattering of high-profile art fairs, including the likes of FIAC, Art Élysées, and ASIA NOW. When it comes to art, you know that you always have more than your fair share of options with all your museums, but right now you have more to choose from than ever. Sure, you could go back and revisit the greatest hits—I’ll never pass up the opportunity to say gawk at Raphael’s insane Portrait of Baldassare Castiglione at the Louvre, personally—but make sure you don’t get lost in the weeds and miss out on the city’s potent gallery scene. We’ve put together a list of the unmissable shows on view this fall, so you can print this out and be armed and ready when you hit the streets. If you need more gear, be sure to check out our round-up of 20 sensational cures for fair fatigue during FIAC. You got this.
