Beyond the walls


Beyond the walls

The Art Up! brand is collaborating with ALPEXPO to co-create the Grenoble Art Up! contemporary art fair in Grenoble.

The fair aims to bring together a community of contemporary art collectors and enthusiasts. Additionally, Grenoble Art Up! is enriching the visitor experience by organizing an exhibition beyond the walls and highlighting the abundant offerings of museums in the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region.

For the first edition, 3 museums and art centres from the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region are participating. The Magasin-CNAC, the Fondation Glénat, and the VOG are offering special tours of their temporary and permanent exhibitions to coincide with the fair. These visits will help to ensure that the Grenoble Art Up! experience lasts beyond the fair, while also raising Grenoble’s profile as a cultural and artistic player.

The Glénat fund for heritage and creation

The Glen Baxter, so British! exhibition and the Rembrandt Cabinet, Rembrandt’s Women


This year, the Convent of Sainte-Cécile celebrates the 400th anniversary of its foundation by the Bernardine nuns in 1624. Desecrated during the French Revolution, this heritage building in the heart of Grenoble’s historic centre is home to Glénat, France’s 7th-largest publisher. The Sainte-Cécile convent is open to the public, thanks to the general interest missions and cultural events programme developed by the Fonds Glénat pour le patrimoine et la création.

Currently on show are the Glen Baxter, so British! exhibition and season 5 of the Cabinet Rembrandt, a small museum devoted to the etchings of the Dutch etching master, Women in Rembrandt.

As part of the Grenoble Art Up! event, the Glénat collection is offering visitors the chance to discover the essentials of the Rembrandt cabinet and the Glen Baxter exhibition during 6 flash visits (20 min), taking place alternately at 10am (Rembrandt cabinet), 11am (Glen Baxter exhibition), 12pm (Rembrandt cabinet), 2.30pm (Glen Baxter exhibition), 3.30pm (Rembrandt cabinet) and 4.30pm (Glen Baxter exhibition) on Thursday 4 April and Friday 5 April 2024.

Le Magasin - National contemporary art centre

Julien Creuzet “Oh telephone, black oracle / all people mirror screens (…)

From 17 November 2023 to 26 May 2024

With Phoebe Collings-James, Christina Kimeze, Manuel Mathieu, Bruno Peinado and Chloé Quenum.


As a prelude to the 60th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, where Julien Creuzet will represent France in the French pavilion, this solo exhibition offers a retrospective look at the breadth of his work. It is presented as a landscape, made collective by the dialogue between the artist’s works and five other contemporary voices. A plural vision of thought has always accompanied Julien Creuzet’s artistic process: it articulates and nourishes it, carrying with it the possibility of shaping new languages.

Leslie Amine Just eat

From 10 February to 13 April 2024


Leslie Amine is a French painter who currently lives and works in Grenoble.
To produce her work, she begins by using photographs of landscapes or people she meets. These snapshots often come from the African continent, to which she is linked by her Beninese origins, but also from France, where she lives. When she paints, she mixes several images and cultures that are not necessarily related, but which reveal questions about our society.

At VOG, she presents her exhibition under the title Just eat, which refers to bicycle couriers.
She links these deliverymen with landscapes from elsewhere, clouds of dust and smoke that blur the legibility of the portrait itself.
She brings to the fore invisible characters that we see every day, asking us about their history.
Through her paintings, the artist shows us who these delivery men are. She encourages us to think about their condition in our society and to question the way in which the system in which we live works.


Free guided tour of the exhibition with artist Leslie Amine on Saturday 6 April at 4pm.
