April 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Website_large_dreamhouse

Abandoned buildings repurposed as surreal dream houses, a million tulip petals falling from the sky: every three years the remote snow country of Echigo-Tsumari is transformed into a spellbinding art festival. Conceived as a way of revitalizing a depopulated region, the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale is not only one of the world’s largest art festivals, it is a powerful force for social change. In collaboration with the local community, the bucolic landscape is turned into a multi-media exhibit space, drawing in artists and admirers from around the world. Come hear from participating artists Marina Abramović, Cai Guo-Qiang, and Ilya & Emilia Kabakov, as well as creator and General Director Fram Kitagawa. Co-organized by Midori Yamamura.

Tickets: $20/$16 Japan Society members, seniors & students
