We are pleased to announce that “SUZU 2017: Oku-Noto Triennale” will be held for 50 days from 3 September to 22 October 2017 in Suzu City, Ishikawa Prefecture.
The city of Suzu is located at the unique juncture where the warm current (kuroshio) and cold current (oyashio) in the Sea of Japan meet and seasonal winds from the continent laden with moisture. Suzu flourished as an important port when maritime trade across the Sea of Japan was active, including kitamae-bune, the freight ships of the Edo-period. It is also a place where different cultures across Japan have been accumulated as represented by local festival and remains as a source of Japanese culture as still seen in Kiriko and Yobare.
“SUZU 2017: Oku-Noto Triennale” aims to be an unprecedented festival in which participating artists can rediscover the charm of the place, its patterns of life and its people, while engaging locals and supporters from elsewhere. Let us jointly create an art festival where traditional culture resonates with contemporary art.
