“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.
Each year, Art Up! invite you to discover unique exhibitions in relation to the thematic !
For this 13th edition, we decided to present a selection of artists directed by the Univer gallery - Paris. We also encourage you to discover the artist's collective Fiber Art Fever ! which will present its "Prévert inventory".

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!
