Towada city of Aoyama prefecture hosts the “Towada Oirase Art Festival” in commemoration of the 5th anniversary of Towada Art Center. The festival will open from Sept. 21st to Nov. 24th.

The festival consists of three main parts: the exhibit, publication of concept book and hosting of a seminar. Under the theme “a wide range of time trips,” the festival aims to break new grounds by fusing the vast nature in the Oirase Towada area with contemporary art. Hiroshi Fuji, the deputy director of Towada Art Center, serves as artistic director. Aside from artists, writers, poets and those from the theatre world will participate as creators, making the most of the unused facilities and surroundings available in the city.
