Yokohama Triennale. ART Fahrenheit 451: Sailing into the sea of oblivion

The world (universe) is mostly filled with the black hole (or the vast and deep sea ) of the forgotten. Compared with this, the world of memory is only a small island in the vast sea 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. Yokohama Triennale 2014 aims to present a story of such a voyage through the mind.

The exhibitions, with more than 70 individual artists at the two main venues, Yokohama Museum of Art and Shinko Pier Exhibition Hall, are organized like a book composed of two introductions and 11 chapters, conceived by the Artistic DirectorMorimura Yasumasa.

The Sapporo International Art Festival 2014 and the Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale are held during periods overlapping with that of the Yokohama Triennale 2014 and will “drift” to Yokohama.
