International contemporary art festival

 

 

 

Introduction

 

Annual international art festival with focus on visual arts extended with installation, land art and conceptual art forms.

Our only guideline are that 1) presented artworks are of high quality with which we mean art for contemporary galeries or editions

and 2) reflects the aim of a true artist.

 

We aim to exhibit art and not (mass) culture.

The festival houses in a small village south of Namur and 8km from the french border at Givet. On year base several spaces are often invested with arts and a few others join only for the time of the art festival. Actualy a total of 9 spaces are running up.

 

New to this edition : some spaces (GRAAL, Church, Old School and Séchoir) are operated by curators. In total autonomy.

 

Participation

 

We offer space and walls to exhibit free. As we own all those places we have nearly no costs except the promotional ones, this is how we keep it running

thru the years.

 

Artists have to participate at their own transport costs and are asked to be present for the weekend and opening preview friday evening.

The accomodation for showing is present as are 2 projectors for video screening (if needed). All sales are under full responability of the artworks owner.

 

We have several options in the village for housing people during the weekend.

 

Influence

 

We are at our 4th edition without counting another 3 editions of the Art Débridé festival of the early 2000’s.

 

Visitors range is rising by the year. The 2018 edition saw +500 people walking by. As we aim to present high quality we reach the art minded people and less the occassional visitor lost on any sunday.

New this year will be the preview opening night on friday. Only on invitation and for selected art influencers (galerie owners, collectors and staff of culture centers, organisers …), local and national media and artists & friends.
