“2022 will be a period of recovery from this pandemic, in which new proposals will be called for in all areas of life, whether environmental, political, economic or cultural, in order to respond to the structures of contemporary society which have been highlighted by COVID-19,” explains Kataoka Mami, artistic director, Aichi Triennale 2022.

The 2022 edition of the triennale presents 100 artists from 32 countries and regions of the world. They all talk about the question of survival and prosperity in the age of the pandemic.

“Learning the stories behind their creation, and the times and cultures in which the artists lived can help us understand the emotions and consciousness of people in distant parts of the world, or those of different generations,” says Kataoka.

Now what have you done today to take a break from your busy schedule and find new avenues to apply your creativity?
