Funded: Ivana Franke, Andreas Greiner and Rosa Barba

Yokohama Triennale 2020 has commissioned to Ivana Franke a project of a grand scale. The work entitled 'Resonance of the Unforeseen' is exhibited at the façade of the building of Yokohama Museum of Art. It challenges the audience’s habitual gaze and fluctuates and eventually vanishes the outline of the solid building.

Andreas Greiner develops his project 'Multitudes' which explores art, natural science, and humanities. In a theater of PLOT 48, a self-playing piano plays a score composed by Tyler Friedman. Bioluminescent algae in water containers placed on the piano will emit natural blue light by reacting to the music and vibration of the instrument.

Rosa Barba reconstructs 'Bending to Earth', a piece presented at the 2015 Venice Biennale, in a gallery of Yokohama Museum of Art. Here Barba will reveal the landscape intervened and altered by human through the images of the fields contaminated by radiation filmed from the air by a handheld camera.

These artists were supported by the ifa exhibition funding.

About Yokohama Triennale

The Yokohama Triennale is an international exhibition of contemporary art held in Yokohama once every three years. The exhibition features both internationally renowned and up-and-coming artists, and presents the latest trends and expressions in contemporary art.

The Raqs Media Collective (Raqs), a collective of three artists based in New Delhi, India, leads the Yokohama Triennale 2020, its 7th edition, as its artistic director.

The title is 'Afterglow', a word chosen by Raqs to reference how, in our everyday lives, we unknowingly experience the residues of light sparked at the beginning of our time. Raqs takes interest in the cycle of destruction/toxicity and recovery/care in the human activities of the contemporary age.

Exhibition Funding

The Exhibition Funding programme supports contemporary artists in implementing art projects abroad.
