And in the street they did arise
A new generation of completely liberated artists is set to come hurtling into Mons! Their mission is to touch every square, every street, every cul-de-sac and all the places at the nerve centre of the European Capital of Culture. However, we aren’t fleeing our cultural institutions to impose their productions across the city’s public spaces. These installations are not intended to be open-air exhibitions of contemporary art, but rather a series of street-corner “arisings”. Then, it’s down to you to make of them what you will; what would you make of a pile of books cascading down the street from a university window, or of a giant aquarium in the lobby of a building? What about tagging on walls or adverts by graffiti artists from all over the place, even as far as New York?! The aim is to open your eyes and, if we can’t offer you answers, to encourage you to ask questions. Who am I? Where am I going? What are we doing together? Isn’t that the very meaning of art? You tell us....
