Setouchi Triennale 2019

Join Japanophile John McBride AM for a comprehensive visit to all 12 islands and one port of the 2019 Setouchi Triennale, celebrating the creativity of Japanese and international artists.

Many are aware of the three impressive ‘art islands’ of Naoshima, Teshima and Megijima in the Seto Inland Sea of Japan, but these permanent art installations of global fame are supported by a triennale art event which extends over 12 islands. For the 2019 triennale John will lead travellers on a comprehensive tour of the full dozen islands and one port, engaging with the Japanese and international art collected for the event. Experience the laidback lifestyles of the islanders of the Inland Sea, the ‘Aegean of Asia’, and discover how the traditional culture of Japan still survives in their small villages, supported by this important international art event.
