Grenoble Art Up! in a few words

Since its creation by Lille Grand Palais in 2008, Lille Art Up! has become a reference fair with a high quality artistic plateau selected by its artistic direction and a selection committee. With 30,000 visitors each year, Lille Art Up! is supported by regional and national economic, cultural and media partners.

In 2024, the Art Up! brand was exported to the Grenoble region, co-created with ALPEXPO, Grenoble Art Up! In the tradition of Lille Art Up! The aim of the fair is to bring together institutional, museum and cultural actors and to become the essential contemporary art fair of the region.

A multidisciplinary art fair

Sculpture, painting, photography, fine arts, ceramics, glass, installations, etc. Grenoble Art Up! welcomes contemporary artistic creation in all its forms and offers a thematic exhibition. In line with our desire to discover the artistic talents of tomorrow and to be at the forefront of young artistic creation, Grenoble Art Up! supports young galleries and their artists.

A word from the artistic director

“Grenoble Art Up! is a contemporary art fair dedicated to contemporary artistic creation in all its forms, from painting to digital art, photography and decorative arts. It will be particularly open to young creation, the international scene and the visual arts in a region renowned for its art and design schools.

The fair aims to be a unifying event under the prism of living art, by ensuring the quality of the galleries’ offer and by establishing partnerships with cultural operators in the Rhône-Alpes region. It will be an open and creative space where galleries, artists and the public can share a taste for human and artistic adventure”.

ALPEXPO, a site classified Outstanding Contemporary Architecture

Built for the Olympic Games in Grenoble in 1968, the exhibition centre is a technological and architectural feat. The buildings were built by architects Jean and Claude Prouvé, assisted by Serge Binotto and engineers Léon Pétroff and Louis Fruitet.

Alpes Congrès with its stairs and its exceptional luminosity and the Summum with its unique metal frame are all part of the same architectural elegance.


Grenoble, a privileged artistic destination

At the crossroads of France, Switzerland and Italy, it enjoys a privileged location in the heart of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, one of the most prosperous and dynamic in Europe where the place of artistic creation is central.
