Yokohama Tirennale 2017
Yokohama Museum of Art

The sixth edition of the Yokohama Triennaleis pleased to announce the exhibition title of Yokohama Triennale 2017, “Islands, Constellations and Galapagos.” The title, together with the concept, has been conceived as a result of a series of discussion by the Conception Meeting members, consisting of the directors and experts of different generations working in different fields.

“Islands,” “constellations,” and “Galapagos,” are words that open possibilities for us to discuss various issues such as isolation and connectivity, imagination and guidance, distinctness and diversity, among others. In contemplating what we shall consider wisdom for our future during this time of uncertainty, we hope to engage people in these discussions using our imagination and creativity.

In addition to the exhibition, a series of public forums “Yokohama Round” will be kicked off in January 2017 as a platform for conversations/discussions, contemplation, as well as sharing/co-existence in exploring the ideas surrounding the title of Yokohama Triennale 2017.
