Art's Birthday

Join us to celebrate Art's 1,000,053rd Birthday! We will be celebrating with a night of music by adventurous local musicians, plus CAKE. The party will be broadcast live on CFRC 101.9fm! We'll be hearing sets from Treebot, Pictogram, Frankenstorm and Konig!

Art's Birthday is an annual event first proposed in 1963 by French artist Robert Filliou. As he tells it, 1,000,000 years ago, there was no art. But one day, on the 17th of January to be precise, Art was born. According to Filliou, it happened when someone dropped a dry sponge into a bucket of water: "Modest beginnings, but look at us now!"

Filliou proposed a public holiday to celebrate the presence of art in our lives. In recent years, the idea has been taken up by a loose network of artists and friends around the world. Each year the Eternal Network evolves to include new partners - working with the ideas of exchange and telecommunications-art.
