From Saturday, the 13th of April until Sunday the 19th of May, the 'Coup de Ville' arts trail will once again accelerate the pulse of the heart of Sint-Niklaas.

With the theme Artists & Athletes: the hill they climb, we are reigniting the feud between body and mind. After all, both in art and in sports people dream of the top! Opposite domains? An unbridgeable split? Yet in both, fame or tragedy feel equally intense. But what exactly is the meaning and what scope do aspects such as: talent, discipline, style, limitation, duration or strength have in both art and sport? These differences and similarities will be explored in detail in the upcoming Coup de Ville.

Do you want to stroll or do you prefer jogging? To enjoy the trail, each chooses their own tempo. Drawings, sculptures, paintings, videos, installations, glory and labour will be shown in nine remarkable places. Not only are 40 artists involved, but also coaches, athletes with Olympic ambitions and G-sport athletes are entering our stage. Throughout the exhibition there will also be introductions, workshops, interviews and other activities.

Coup de Ville 2024: a GAMECHANGER.
