Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale 2018 | call for proposals


Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale 2018 (ETAT 2018) will be held in Niigata, Japan from the end of July to mid September 2018. Call for proposals for artworks to be presented at ETAT2018 which feature distinctive landscape, history and nature of Echigo-Tsumari as well as attract international attentions.

Echigo-Tsumari Art Field will continue to develop “SNOWART”, the winter art project which began in 2017 in order to highlight uniqueness of Echigo-Tsumari as a snow country. As we will organise Echigo-Tsuamri 2018 Winter - SNOWART from February to March in 2018 we are also inviting ideas for artworks and projects which will spotlight culture and wisdoms of locals and the beauty of snow and enable visitors to enjoy snow.
