Aichi Triennale 2016
This event has ended.
The 3rd Aichi Triennale takes up the theme of humankind’s creative journey—or “caravan”—to the unknown, the kind of journey that invariably takes the form of an endless quest driven by curiosity. Aichi Triennale is a rare international art festival in that it aims to showcase, in the most integrated manner possible, the artistic activities of our times, including but not limited to visual art, moving images, music, performing arts, and opera. As such, it offers a prime opportunity to rediscover the connection with nature intrinsic to art since long before it branched into specialized genres. It also provides an open, festive forum for contemporaries to uninhibitedly exchange ideas and know-how through the vehicle of creation, and share inspirational moments. Art is a journey into the unknown. Human activity is likewise an expedition into uncharted territory. An art festival is also an undertaking analogous to a journey. Taking on board many, many people, it is an expedition caravan that travels across all sorts of borders in search of the next resonances and shapes. Let us make a “golden record” of our times ourselves. Wherever exhibitions, theater performances, and other colorful events happen, bringing together curiosity-driven individuals from all walks of life, will stand for our caravanserai, where we recover from the day’s journey and prepare for the next journey to the unknown.
The creative caravan departs, loaded with unbounded imagination.
