Aichi Triennale

Aichi Triennale—an international contemporary art festival that occurs once every three years and is one of the largest of its kind—has been showcasing the cutting edge of the arts since 2010, through its wide-ranging program that spans international contemporary visual art, film, the performing arts, music, and more.

This fourth iteration of the festival welcomes journalist and media activist Daisuke Tsuda as its artistic director. By choosing Taming Y/Our Passion as the festival’s theme, Tsuda seeks to address “the sensationalization of media that at present plagues and polarizes people around the world.” He hopes that by “employing the capacity of art—a venture that, capable of encompassing every possible phenomenon, eschews framing the world through dichotomies—to speak to our compassion, thus potentially yielding clues to solving this predicament.” Aichi Triennale 2019 announced the addition of 47 artists to its lineup on March 27, 2019; the list now comprises a total of 79 artists.
