Oku-Noto Triennale 2020 Open Call

Suzu, Japan

Deadline: October 31, 2019

We are looking for site-specific artworks that resonate with the potential of Suzu in Oku-Noto. Suzu, a city at the tip of the Noto Peninsula, has inherited rich cultural resources from various parts of the Japanese archipelago and continents abroad. Suzu, left behind by the urbanization of the 20th century, has become the land “at the furthest edge of the world”. Consequently, we can find landscapes here and there in Suzu that might be called “forgotten Japan.”

Approximately 10 works of art will be selected (subject to change depending on the situation) Selected project will be financially supported up to JPY 2,000,000. The actual amount of support will be decided based upon the proposed estimate.

Artworks and projects that highlight Suzu’s nature, history, culture, climate, landscape, etc.
1. Installation (artwork, display to be presented during the Triennale)
2. Performing Arts (music, dance, drama, etc. performed during the Triennale)
3. Free Genre (planning / projects in various fields, not limited to art)

Full details and application are available here; or contact: info@oku-noto.jp
