Coup de Ville is an exhibition and city festival of contemporary art taking place from September 13 until October 13, 2013. The title Coup de Ville refers to the idea of an 'occupied city'—in an aesthetical way. The artworks are realised for and presented in museums and historic, domestic, and public locations in the centre of Sint-Niklaas: a small but ambitious and dynamic town between the classical cultural cities Antwerp and Ghent in Belgium.
