INDISCIPLINE @ Palais de Tokyo
Bruxelles, capitale plurielle et artistique, se dévoile à Paris

Past: September 3 → 4, 2016

Fgen 2016 indiscipline 4 09 2016 76 grid Bruxelles au Palais de Tokyo : le week-end d’Indiscipline Bruxellois et parisiens étaient réunis au Palais de Tokyo en ce premier week-end de septembre. Indiscipline présenta bien plus que des artistes : c’est l’énergie de la ville de Bruxelles, capitale régionale, nationale et européenne qui fut révélée. Retour sur un événement marquant de la rentrée artistique.

Over the weekend of September 3 & 4, 2016, more than 30 artists, comprising visual artists, performers, choreographers and video makers based in Brussels, will be invited to the Palais de Tokyo by Indiscipline, selected by a curatorial team of WIELS (Brussels’ contemporary art centre), Kunstenfestivaldesarts (Performing Arts Festival) and the Wallonie-Bruxelles Théâtre/Danse agency.

Coming from around 15 different countries, these artists will present works from diverse crossover disciplines, pushing a number of our symbolic, physical, cultural and linguistic boundaries.

Within the space of a few years, Brussels has turned into an international platform dedicated to emerging artists and to artistic experimentation. Artists from all around the world gather there to find a breeding ground in which to showcase their talents. Characterized by their artistic risks, local artists don’t seem to share any common ground, other than their undisciplined nature and their interdisciplinary bias.
