The Fair

After "Art and Architecture", "volume and Sculpture" or "Photography" in the previous edition, Art Up! chose this year to take a look at Textile Art through the theme: "The thread of art: how textile art, once solely intertwined with tapestry, has now become an art of the future?"
Discover the vision of this theme through the galleries, exhibitions and animations of the fair!


Textile Art

“The thread of art: how textile art, once solely intertwined with tapestry, has now become an art of the future?”


As new technologies mingle with ancient skills, as new and old material coexist, textile arts go through an era of hybridisation.

Building bridges and connections between all forms of arts, sewing and stitching become a sculpture, the thread creates volume, the needle turns into a sharp pencil, the rope commingles with poor and primitive material.

Weaving, braiding, twisting, piercing, cutting, pleating, gluing, entwining, mixing… Many contemporary artists have adopted old techniques to stitch their thoughts together or to patch the world.

Textile shifts from abstract thought to feminist art, it plays with dimensions and conquers space, it represents bodies and symbolises time.



Many key moments punctuate the 12th edition of Art Up!

Find in the space dedicated to the Paris fotofever fair and its selection of photography galleries, the innovative exhibition of Fresh Art from China, Anna Katharina Scheidegger, a young photographer given pride of place by Le Fresnoy – a national studio of contemporary arts – and of course the exhibition that everyone has been waiting for : « Revelation by Art Up! ». It gives pride of place to young artists from the region’s art schools.


Revelation by Art Up!

To help promote the region's young talents, Art Up! organizes the exhibition "Revelation by Art Up! ". This initiative attracts many collectors, gallery owners or art professionals. So, Art Up! has had the pleasure of revealing a number of young artists who have since been exhibited in important galleries, art structures, companies, fairs and museums! The 13th edition of Art Up! will highlight textile art through the theme "Through art, how did textile art once associated with tapestry become an art of the future? " This question was naturally asked to the new generation of artists through the exhibition Revelation by Art Up! The art committee of the fair is looking forward to show you the 2020 promotion!



FOTOFEVER proposes on its dedicated space a programme of photography conferences for the general public. It is in this context that the visitors are invited to meet Jean-Marie Périer, the famous photographer of stars, who will be present at the Art Night
