Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale is an art festival which has been held once every three years in the Echigo-Tsumari region (Tokamachi-city and Tsunan-town in Niigata Prefecture) known for heavy snowfall in winter since 2000.
Under its overarching agenda, “human beings are part of nature”, the festival aims to reveal existing assets of the region using art as a catalyst, rediscover their values and communicate these to the world and find a way to revitalise the region. The next festival is going to be held in summer 2018.
You can enjoy Echigo-Tsumari Satoyama Museum of Contemporary Art, KINARE, Matsudai Nohbutai, Kyororo and artworks outdoor in between festivals. There are also seasonal events and special opening of artworks.
