ABOUT

Based on the theme “OUR MAGIC HOUR”, the YOKOHAMA TRIENNALE 2011 will be held at two main venues: the Yokohama Museum of Art and NYK Waterfront Warehouse (BankART Studio NYK).

Focusing on works that allude to the magical mysterious powers in our daily lives and world as well as those that refer to mythology , myths and legend, The Triennale promises to be a vibrant exhibition that will showcase the works of dynamic contemporary Japanese and international drawing on pieces from the collection of the Yokohama Museum of Art and other institutions.

We invite you to join us in Yokohama, one of the first port cities, that opened its doors to the world, on this exploration of previously unknown worlds – a voyage into a realm of new, uncharted knowledge.
