Held every three years since 2010, Aichi Triennale is a major international art festival showcasing both contemporary visual art and stage performances. The rich program comprising an international art exhibition, film program, performing arts, and an opera production will be overseen by the 2016 festival's artistic director, photographer and author MINATO Chihiro, and will open under the theme Homo Faber: A Rainbow Caravan on August 11, 2016.
