Yokohama Triennale 2014

The Organizing Committee for the Yokohama Triennale is pleased to announce the detailed list of participating artists at Yokohama Triennale 2014, which will open this coming August.

In addition to the preview list of seven artists/groups announced prior, 55 new artists/groups have been announced at the forth press conference held on April 22, bringing the total number of participants to 62 from 19 countries and regions.

The artistic director of Yokohama Triennale 2014, Yasumasa Morimura, released the exhibition structure and participating artists list as follows:

Embarking on a voyage into the sea of oblivion
Haven’t we left behind something that is fundamentally important? Have we moved on without realizing it, or simply, left it behind, while knowing it all along?

There are artists and artistic expressions that respond acutely to this realm of oblivion.

Yokohama Triennale 2014 will be a “voyage into the sea of oblivion.” It will make us recall things that have been inadvertently lost from our lives, things that have been perpetually forgotten by human beings, and particular things that have been lost in the contemporary age.

Let us wander, feel perplexed, become inspired, broaden our imaginations, and stop and contemplate. Comprised of two introductions and a total of 11 chapters, the Yokohama Triennale 2014 will provide us with an opportunity to compile a journal of a drifting mind.
