General Direction Fram Kitagawa Art Director
During the festival, nearly 150 artworks by artists from Japan and overseas were exhibited on the twelve islands and around the ports of Takamatsu and Uno in addition to a considerable number of museums and art sites already in existence, including several permanent art installations from the 2010 festival. Much of the artwork remains standing after the end of the festival, justifying a visit to the area at any time of the year.
The artworks are found across the islands. Some of them stand outdoors in the fields, along the coast or in villages. Others make use of the numerous old homes which have been left abandoned due to the depopulation. The buildings are employed as exhibition spaces or have been converted into artworks themselves. In addition, there are the established museums and art sites on Naoshima, Inujima and Teshima islands.
