Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial


* Christian Boltanski & Jean Kalman (France), The Last Class, 2006 *

* Kiyoshi Takazawa (japan), Installation for Tsunan, 2009 *

Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial is the world's biggest outdoor contemporary art exhibition, in which large-scale contemporary works are being showcased. Held in a rural region three hours outside Tokyo, these installations take advantage of the Japan countryside--utilizing its rice paddies, closed-down schools and refurbished homes. This exhibition has a fabulous line-up of artists ranging from Japanese artists to internationally acclaimed names such as Yayoi Kusama, Anthony Gormley, Richard Deacon, Lauren Berkowitz, Chiharu Shiota and Cai Go-Qiang. I can't help but praise the collection of work exhibited in this particular event. The show will last until September 13th, 2009. Read more about it on ArtInfo.
