VEGA|ARTS is a new visionary initiative that links Denmark's most important music venue, with ambitious and transgressive contemporary art in an investigation of coming together through art. Over a one-year period (May 2019 to May 2020), VEGA|ARTS will include performances, installations, exhibitions, talks, workshops and thematical threads that combine the hybrid and performative art practices with the intense, intimate and cultural space of the live concert.
How VEGA|ARTS will be integrated
VEGA|ARTS wishes to introduce new or modified works and develop artistic research that can be both a concrete collaborations between a video artist and music live acts; a performance during an concert combining visuals and a number of performers creating a unique experience of bodily and ritual presence OR as major events in the festival format, where works from several artists are installed and performed throughout the building over a weekend.
