Tokyo Biennale 2020/2021
Jul 10, 2021 at 12:00am ~ Sep 05, 2021 at 11:59pm
Held every 2 years, the Tokyo Biennale is an international art festival that sets the city of Tokyo as its main stage. The festival is a new type of event that aims to dig deep into the city, as it is created together with the area’s local citizens, as well as a wide variety of artists and creators from around the world. The Tokyo Biennale aims at creating activities to become events shared by everyone through many kinds of encounters made between us all. New groups of people have gathered in the area comprising of local citizens with deep roots, as well as those from all over Japan and the entire world.
While all kinds of people are living, working, and enjoying the cosmopolitan city of Tokyo, art is what connects them from across different backgrounds as it brings to life our neighborhoods’ histories and draws out the future. From here, the concept of “us” emerges and each person may even discover a new “me”. Under the theme of “Purity x Earnestness x Deviation”, the key words are “art x community x industry” as we work with people in the area to build our own culture in our own place with activities surrounding the concepts of “HISTORY & FUTURE”, “EDUCATION”, “WELL-BEING”, and “RESILIENCY”.
