Aichi Triennale 2019:August 1 (Thu) to October 14 (Mon)Culture
“Taming Y/Our Passion” is this year’s theme for one of the largest international art festivals held in Japan. The festival has been held every three years since 2010.
More than 80 Japanese and international artists will showcase their works at the 4th edition of the event. Cutting-edge artworks across various genres - including video, performance pieces, and music - will be exhibited, along with the international contemporary art exhibition.
Programs by Paris-based pascALEjandro (Alejandro Jodorowsky and Pascale Montandon-Jodorowsky) and a collaborative performance by New York’s Nature Theater of Oklahoma and Slovenia’s EN-KNAP Group are scheduled.
In addition, an equal number of male and female artists were selected to put a spotlight on gender inequality issues in Japan (which ranked 110th place in the gender gap index). Daisuke Tsuda, who is the Artistic Director of the event hopes that we “will find this year’s program interesting - not only in the context of culture and art - but also in the context of symbiosis, diversity, and affirmative action.”
