TodaysArt is a festival concept that revolves around the presentation and development of adventurous contemporary visual and performing arts in a variety of urban settings.
Since 2005, TodaysArt has brought international artists, thinkers and audiences to The Hague. In 2011, the festival’s reach extended through the initiation of TodaysArt Brussels in collaboration with Cimatics festival.
Cimatics festival is a citywide event in Brussels and it’s latest edition (2009) was spread out all over the city with more than 150 artists, 17 venues, 10 days and nights and over 10.000 visitors.
With a focus on audiovisual art and digital culture, festival is unique in Belgium and has built up a strong international reputation.
Festival was set up in 2003 for a first audiovisual festival explicitly grounded in electronic subculture, afterwards was expanded into a festival for ‘Live Audiovisual Art & VJing’.
Festival has always been intended to be an event with a meta-narrative, a node where grass-roots, underground and pop or art become mixed. In short, a contemporary happening with a capital ‘H’.
TodaysArt uses and transforms the city’s infrastructure and creates temporary spaces to produce events in inspiring settings, such as main squares, public buildings, museums, concert halls, clubs and theatres. Among these are the city’s most well-known venues and cultural institutes, but also the often overlooked and undervalued public spaces, buildings and initiatives; places that become actively involved in shaping the character of the city.
