In extenso is an association for contemporary art in Clermont-Ferrand. Its mission is to disseminate contemporary art through two main activities: exhibitions and publications.
Whether in its physical exhibition space, off-site projects or in the pages of La belle revue – a free, annual contemporary art magazine – the association accompanies artists in order to support and promote their practices on a local and international scale.
By supporting a vast network of art workers, In extenso is committed to defending an engaged and inclusive vision of art. It supports innovative creation and contributes to its recognition. The association targets a wide audience, working in close collaboration with cultural structures in Clermont-Ferrand, as well as nationally and internationally, contributing to the construction of a strong, close-knit cultural network in which the city of Clermont-Ferrand has become the core.
In extenso is a contemporary art association founded in 2002 by artists Marc Geneix and Sébastien Maloberti, with the aim of supporting and disseminating the work of artists working locally, nationally and internationally.
The association has a space in the heart of Clermont-Ferrand, where it organises between three and five exhibitions a year. In extenso also organises occasional off-site programming through partnerships with French and international structures.
Since 2005, In extenso has been developing its publishing activities in order to reach audiences beyond its exhibition space. Alongside the occasional publication of exhibition catalogs and artists’ books, its most important editorial project is the publication La belle revue.
Created in 2009, La belle revue is an annual contemporary art magazine distributed free of charge in art venues in France, Belgium and Switzerland. It makes a major contribution to the cultural influence of Clermont-Ferrand and the Centre-France Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region. Its website is updated monthly. Comprising exhibition reviews, thematic dossiers, original artistic productions, portraits of artists and local structures, La belle revue aims to support a vast ecosystem of artists, critics, structures, institutions and art venues in Centre-France Auvergne Rhône-Alpes, and beyond.

A signature with trembling features is adorned with its most beautiful attire. It dresses up every day with a myriad of ‘charms’ depending on the occasion. A first wardrobe of accessories for everyday life – a ring, a heart, keys; a second for each season; and a last one, an exceptional one, for special occasions.
In extenso’s graphic chart, designed by Traduttore, traditore, reflects the multifaceted identity of our association, and our diverse activities: an exhibition space that disguises itself with each exhibition as well as a range of editorial projects. In extenso is a dynamic and changing place thanks to the artistic proposals that identify it, characterise it and define it.
