Hong Kong House at Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale 2018 — Open Call for Proposals
Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale is one of the largest international outdoor art festival in the world — using art as a catalyst, the Triennale provides a platform to present projects and initiatives which aim to reveal existing assets of the region and rebuild the relationship between human and nature through artistic creation, appreciation, and participation. Since 2000, over 700 artists from all over the world have made use of the plentiful resources from the land and community to create more than 1,000 pieces of art. Abandoned houses and schools in Echigo-Tsumari are adaptively-reused and transformed into public places to showcase works of arts and creative ideas.
Art Promotion Office (APO) in Hong Kong will join hands with the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale to feature the works of Hong Kong artists in the Hong Kong House located in Tsunan Town of Japan in 2018, 2019 and 2020 respectively. Meanwhile, various activities, workshops and performances will be carried out inside Hong Kong House and neighborhood nearby. APO is currently looking for artists and architects who are interested in this outbound public art project and willing to work with us to build up an art hub in Echigo-Tsumari. Submit your proposal today!
