Setouchi Triennale 2019 – The End


Ogijima residents and artists waving goodbye to the last ferry leaving the island on November 4th, signaling at the same time the end of the festival there.


So, that’s it. The Setouchi Triennale 2019 has ended.

It’s been a long but great year with so many things happening. First of all, sorry for having been quiet on the blog for so long (probably the longest since I started it), but during the past two months, I pretty much had no time to write, partly due to the Triennale itself.

The good news is that now, I will have more time to show you all the things I have yet to show you about the art festival.

Also, I will need to update a few pages on the site, but it will take time, so bear with me. Remember, while the Setouchi Triennale 2019 is over, Art Setouchi never stops. However, I don’t have all the information yet about what will stay open and when. Just know that between now and next spring, all of the art on Naoshima and Inujima as well as most of the art on Teshima will remain available, whereas, on the other islands, everything is closed until March 2020 when some permanent artworks will reopen, usually on weekends. Of course, permanent outdoor artworks are always viewable.

OK, I’m not going to blabber too long right now, I should use that time to start updating a few things, don’t you think?

Hopefully, Lin Shuenlong’s Beyond the Borders – the Ocean should remain in Takamatsu Sunport for the time being.
