Aichi Triennale 2010. Arts and Cities

21 August 2010 - 31 October 2010

Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art, Aichi, JP

The inaugural edition of the Aichi Triennale, an international arts festival that aims to convey the latest trends in contemporary art, is conceived around the theme "Arts and Cities."

Approximately 130 artists and artists' groups from all over the world are invited to present their works not only in museums and theaters in Nagoya, but also at various other locations in the public space, such as streets, squares, parks, shopping areas, and a historic textile wholesale district, turning the entire city into an art experience.

In addition to the international show, there will be exhibitions based on the results of a competition for young artists. These presentations will give new and multifaceted perspectives rarely to find at other international events.

There will also be stage performances in which disciplines such as dance, music, theatre, opera are integrated with cutting-edge artistic expressions.

An international film program, site-specific performances, a symposium on international exhibitions, workshops offering training in art and stage production, a Kid's Triennale, as well as a series of concurrent programs and joint activities by art museums and concert halls in Aichi Prefecture will expand the Triennale's outreach regionally and internationally.
