ART FESTIVAL COUP DE VILLE
09/09 > 09/10 2016

Contemporary art in the city centre

 

Every three years, contemporary art platform WARP immerses the city of Sint-Niklaas in highly topical art by organising the ‘Coup de Ville’ arts exhibition.

 

More than 30 artists from Belgium and every corner of the world use their works of art to take you for a walk through the city centre. They let themselves be inspired by both the poetry of everyday life and the big challenges of our time. What can classical mastery still mean in an era of digital revolution? And how do you process the echoes of the past? Using drawings, paintings, sculptures, sound scapes, photography, film and opinionated interventions artists enter into a dialogue with the environment. As a result, you will get an intimate view on art, architecture and the people behind the facade.
