This research project on “Aichi,” home to the Triennale, will emphasize knowing where we are located in order to engage with the worldʼs diversity of expression. Artists and participants chosen from the general public will spend several months conducting multi-faceted research from historical, cultural and sociological perspectives, the results of which will be exhibited during the festival and further developed over a series of workshops and other activities.
Exploring Aichi and the Greater World
Beginning in the fall of 2021, six artists, jointly with participants invited from the general public, initiated a series of free-format research projects, notably fieldwork and workshops, according to each groupʼs chosen theme. During Aichi Triennale 2022, these projectsʼ results will be exhibited and presented. Workshops and events will also be held.
