Oku-Noto is the name given to the northern area of the Noto Peninsula on the northern coast of Japan. The Oku-Noto Triennale sets in the city of Suzu, which has inherited rich culture and distinctive history of the northern area of the Noto Peninsula, but has been left behind by the urbanisation of the 20th century. The Triennale has invited artists around the world to revitalise the forgotten Japan of profound significance for the current era and to develop future relationships that humans have with nature and civilisation by their works of art. We are calling for proposals from Hong Kong based multi-disciplinary creative talent(s) for this artist-in-residence project. The selected artist/ art group will be granted a commissioning fee not more than HK$400,000, they can even stay in Suzu during the entire triennale period to explore the nature, history and culture, connect with the locals, gain inspiration for artwork creation and organise programmes. Don’t miss your chance to create the foremost art at the furthest edge of Japan!
