Setouchi Asia Forum 2021: Artists’ Breath Live

Setouchi Triennale / Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale


As the third edition of Setouchi Asia Forum, Setouchi Triennale and Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale present Artists’ Breath Live, an online program focusing on how artists are living, thinking and creating in the midst of the pandemic.

The Setouchi Asia Forum was launched as a part of Setouchi Triennale 2016 with the aim of creating a platform for people from Asian countries and regions who had been (or wished to be) involved in regional revitalization through art and culture by sharing their experiences, learning from each other, and discussing their ideas, in order to build continuous and sustainable relationships. The second edition of the forum was held in 2019, joined by 33 organizations from 15 Asian countries and regions. This time, we would like to expand the scope to all over the world and make it an online form in which global artists participate.

Over these one and a half years since the outbreak of the new coronavirus, traveling, dining, gathering, and exhibitions have been restricted, and the humanity that humankind had acquired over two hundred thousand years has been lost. Despite being in such difficult time, it encourages us to hear from artists who continue to think and create their works. The desire to contact with art is growing stronger and stronger, and there has never been a time when artists’ ideas and works have become hope.

Artists’ Breath Live consists of a digital publishing of a booklet composed of over 100 artists’ texts and an online forum delivering 30 artists’ three-minute report each, showing the diversity of artists and the simultaneity of the world.
