Okayama Art Summit 2016 is the first edition of a new triennial contemporary art exhibition to be held in Okayama, Japan. It will feature 31 important contemporary artists. The artistic director of this first edition is Liam Gillick. He has announced the artist list and the concept for this first edition.
All the artists involved in the exhibition play with structures – ideological, formal and political. They do this in very specific ways. Each artist layers their work upon what they encounter. They offer various levels of distance to the given structure. And leave us with different strata for encounter, examination and experience.
