The Fair

After photography, art and architecture or even volume and sculpture, Art Up! has chosen a new theme for the forthcoming edition: the Textile art.
Find the vision of this theme through the galleries, exhibitions and activities at the fair!

THEMATIC

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.

Exhibitions

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.
