In 2024, the Art Up! brand was exported to the Grenoble region!


Since its creation by Lille Grand Palais in 2008, Lille Art Up! has become a benchmark fair with a high-quality artistic line-up selected by its artistic management and a selection committee. With 30,000 visitors each year, Lille Art Up! is supported by economic, cultural and media partners in the region and nationwide. In 2024, the Art Up! brand was exported to the Grenoble region by co-creating Grenoble Art Up! with ALPEXPO.
