What is Yokohama Triennale 2014?

Yokohama Triennale is an international modern art exhibition held in Yokohama once every three years. In the past, in addition to featuring works from internationally active artists, we have presented the world’s latest trends in modern art as well as widely showcased up and coming artists. “Yokohama Triennale 2014” will be held as the 5th exhibition, which Artistic Director Yasumasa Morimura has titled “ART Farenheit 451: Sailing into the sea of oblivion”.

About the venue

The two main venues for “Yokohama Triennale 2014” will be the “Yokohama Museum of Art” and the “Shinko Pier Exhibition Hall”. Using two distinct spaces with different features – i.e., a purpose-built museum equipped with specialized facility and a warehouse-style facility that is open and versatile – will enable us to present a wide range of contemporary art works with a diversity of expressive means.

Five Creative City Core Area Bases
Triennale In The City

Adopting “Triennale in the City” for Yokohama Triennale 2014, along with the cooperation of artists and creators active within Yokohama City, we aim to create a Yokohama that understands art by establishing the Five Creative City Core Area Bases.
The Creative City Core Area Bases are locations that utilize unoccupied office buildings and historical buildings along the waterfront areas such as studios and other spaces used for experiment and production.
