YOKOHAMA 2005: International Triennale of Contemporary Art features 71 projects by 86 artists from 30 countries and regions at two large warehouses on Yamashita Pier in Yokohama, Japan. The theme of this second Yokohama Triennale, which builds on the success of YOKOHAMA 2001, is Art Circus Jumping from the Ordinary. Artistic Director Tadashi Kawamata, who is also an outstanding artist, has envisioned an exhibition that continually moves and changes, showcasing art that is related to the passage of time, to peoples lives, and to place rather than being a static object of contemplation.

The special emphases of the Art Circus is involvement on site, or active participation by visitors in the process of creating works, and involvement with others, in which a work comes into being through interaction with those who gather around it. Through arrangements for public viewing of the creation of particular works, workshops, home stay production by artists, and other approaches, the Triennale seeks to remove the barriers between artists and art lovers and create a fresh space for encounters with art.

In addition to the works on display, various programs along with interactive events from performances, plays, and films to gallery talks by the artistic director and curators to enhance enjoyment of the richly works and projects presented.
