Collaborator: Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale Executive Committee
The Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale is one of the largest international outdoor art festivals in the world and is held once every three years in the Echigo-Tsumari region of Japan since 2000. Using art as a catalyst, the Triennale provides a platform to present projects and initiatives which aims to reveal existing assets of the region and builds the relationship between human and nature through artistic creation, appreciation and participation.
To offer Hong Kong artists and cross-disciplinary talents the chance to explore the unique history and culture of Echigo-Tsumari region as well as to feature distinctive and abundant nature that has the power to connect various cultures, the APO and the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale Executive Committee jointly called for artwork proposals for the programme from 26 June to 11 August 2023. Three selected artist(s) or artists' team(s) will reside in Hong Kong House to create and feature their artworks in 2024, 2025 or 2026 respectively.
The Call for Proposals has closed. After the two-round review by adjudication panel in Hong Kong and Japan, the result will be announced in late October this year. Please stay tuned for updates for this Programme.
