2016 Setouchi Triennale/ Kagawa, JP

2016 Setouchi Triennale 瀨戶內海國際藝術祭 瀬戸内海国際芸術祭 3.10 – 11.6

Kagawa, JP 日本香川縣

Setouchi Triennale 2016 continued to pursue the theme Restoration of the Sea. It commenced on March 20, 2016 and was held over three sessions, spring, summer and autumn, for a total of 108 days in Takamatsu and Uno ports and on the 12 islands of Naoshima, Teshima, Megijima, Ogijima, Shodoshima, Oshima, Inujima, Shamijima, Honjima, Takamijima, Awashima and Ibukijima.

New art works and events were added with particular emphasis on this year’s sub-themes: the region’s connections with Asia and the world via the sea; the Setouchi Food Project; and sharing regional culture, such as lion dances and bonsai.

The Triennale also generated many other benefits. The influx of visitors not only enlivened the islands during the Triennale but also sparked local initiatives directed at revitalization. Many local people were actively involved in making this Triennale a success by helping with the production of art works, manning the reception desks, offering food and hospitality that reflected local customs, and greeting and sending off visitors at the ports.
