With four particular focuses stated below, we hold the 5th Triennale as our own unique international exhibition, aiming it to be "First-ever in Fukuoka and First Step to the World" in order to attract more nationwide and international audiences, along with ones from Fukuoka City and Kyushu Island. 1. While mainly focusing on and selecting emerging artists, who will be first introduced in Japan, the exhibition more actively incorporates the genre of video, photography, design, media art, and etc. 2. Setting up a special section, the exhibition intensively features art activities and works, which shows notably new tendencies in particular regions and genres. 3. The exhibition presents the artists who became internationally active after having participated in the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum Artists in Residence Program. 4. We aim to create a space of collaboration of Asian artists with people working locally in art and culture, such as visual artists, designers, architects, performers, researchers, et al. to provide them opportunities of continuous exchange and international activities for the promotion of culture from Fukuoka.
