Yesterday, all the important information for the Setouchi Triennale 2022 has been announced.

I guess it means that it’s time to update all that needs to be updated on the site. Why don’t we start with the artists and projects taking part in the 2022 edition? (as promised on social media a little while ago).

This list includes the artists with new projects or ongoing projects that are being changed or updated. Permanent works from the previous years are not listed here.

Note that the table may look a bit weird and be a bit tricky on mobile. It might be best viewed on a computer.

First time means whether the artist is coming to the Triennale for the first time or not.
Location is by no means official. Those marked with a question mark are just assumptions that I am making.

Looking at the list, I mostly see many new names that I’m looking forward to getting familiarized with as well as a few very familiar names and that gets me pretty excited about their new or updated works. Sadly, I also was expecting a few names that are missing, but unfortunately, this is unavoidable.

I will update the list if necessary (when I get more information – about locations especially)

I added links to various websites (most of the time the official site of the artist) to give you an idea of their works and who they are.
