The Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale Executive Committee is calling for proposals for its 2015 program.

The committee is seeking artworks and plans that make the best use of Echigo-Tsumari’s history and culture, and proposals for events that will raise international awareness of Echigo-Tsumari will also be considered. The location for proposed artworks will be decided by the project office.

The Triennale has been held every three years in Japan’s Echigo-Tsumari region since 2000. The festival fosters projects that use art as a catalyst to reveal existing assets of the region, “rediscover[ing] their values, [communicating] these to the world and find[ing] a way to revitalise the region”.

Last year’s Triennale saw Sydney-based architect Andrew Burns rebuild Australia House – a gallery, studio and atelier designed to allow collaborative projects between Japanese and Australian artists – after the original structure collapsed as the result of a seismic aftershock in 2011. Opening in July last year, Australia House saw Melbourne-based artist Brook Andrew collaborate with Burns in the final resolution of the building design. Andrew’s permanent artwork Mountain Home – Dhirrayn Ngurang is integrated into Australia House’s design.

Anyone is eligible to submit proposals to the committee.

Submission period: Saturday 1st June to Friday 14th June 2013.
