The artist MORIMURA Yasumasa, as artistic director, exhibited over 400 artworks by 65 groups/79 artists, selected under the concept of “oblivion.” The exhibition structured under the title, inspired by the American dystopian science fiction Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, was divided into two introductions and 11 chapters. In this edition, a group of gallery guides, consisting of teenagers and citizen volunteers, welcomed and helped visitors enjoy the exhibition through their guidance. Yokohama Triennale also connected with the five Creative City Core Area Bases through its tie-up program and placed itself in the cityscape.
This particular edition was also designated as “Culture City of East Asia 2014, YOKOHAMA Core Project.”
