Campaign

Artistic Statement

The Pier an Architectural and technical highlight from 1959, is not just an icon for the Netherlands; it is also wellknow outside the Dutch borders. Millions of people have memories of The Pier. Exactly 50 years ago, The Pier was the location of ‘ZERO on Sea’, a large-scale manifestation of the radical art movement ZERO. Due to financial difficulties, The Pier was closed down several years ago. In October 2014, The Pier was bought by KondorWessels Vastgoed (VolkerWessels) and DanZep. One of their aims is to transform it into a creative and innovative location. This year, TodaysArt will sound in a new era of The Pier and marks the opening event of its cultural program.

Inspired by this iconic building on the sea, ‘ZERO on Sea’ and current developments in arts and society, TodaysArt will transform The Pier into a unique festival venue above the waves. For one weekend, The Pier, the sea, the air and the beachw ill be the canvas for a group of artists. Many of the works were specifically created for the festival and location.
