Aichi Triennale 2010

The inaugural edition of the Aichi Triennale, an international arts festival that aims to convey the latest trends in contemporary art, will be held in August 2010. Held every three years, this event will introduce visitors to contemporary art from around the world in various forms and presentations. Approximately 130 artists and artist groups from all over the world will participate in this year’s Aichi Triennale. The majority of the works, whether they are newly commissioned or being shown for the first time in Japan, can only be seen at this festival.

In keeping with this year’s theme, “Arts and Cities,” the Triennale will be showcasing many works not only in museums and theaters, but also various other locations such as public squares, parks and a historic textile wholesale district. This approach will create a series of fascinating yet unusual urban scenes. As you walk around the city, you will find yourself surrounded by compelling works of art. Visitors are warmly invited to participate in this thrilling experience in Nagoya, where an entire city will be turned into an art space.
