Yokohama Triennale unveiled the initial list of 26 artists participating in the upcoming 2017 edition. The exhibition will include works by internationally acclaimed artists such as Ai Weiwei, Olafur Eliasson and Maurizio Cattelan, as well as Wael Shawky, who will be introduced to Japanese audience for the first time. Carsten Höller, Tobias Rehberger, Anri Sala, and Rirkrit Tiravanija are expected to collaborate on a project commissioned for the Triennale. The final list of artists is expected to include approximately 40 individuals and groups.
A smaller-than-usual number of artists has been carefully selected, and many of them will be presenting a multiple works. As a result, the exhibition will appear as a constellation or an archipelago of small solo exhibitions and the viewers will be given an opportunity to encounter with each artist’ creative world in more depth.
