8th Yokohama Triennale Announces Artist Lineup
By The Editors
The eighth Yokohama Triennale announced the first round of artists on November 28 in a press release. The list features 67 participants, 21 of whom will create new works reflecting the exhibition theme, “Wild Grass: Our Lives.” Conceived by co-artistic directors Beijing-based curators Liu Ding and Carol Yinghua Lu, the concept was inspired by 20th-century Chinese poet Lu Xun’s anthology of the same name, evoking “humble humanism, courage, resilience, faith, and solidarity.” The Triennale will open on March 15 and run to June 9, 2024.
Among the diverse roster of artists is South Ho, a Hong Kong-based photographer who focuses on capturing various locations in his home city looking at the aftermath of major events. Vunkwan Tam, who also hails from Hong Kong, creates installations and sculptures using scavenged objects that have multiple evocative meanings. Veteran Osaka-based artist Morimura Yasumasa’s work parodies various famous historical and pop-culture icons with his visage superimposed onto them.
The Yokohama Triennale will be hosted at the newly renovated Yokohama Museum of Art, the former Daiichi Bank Yokohama Branch, and BankART KAIKO as well as outside the three venue buildings, at sites within the city, and in the free area of the Yokohama Museum of Art.
