This event has ended.

The fourth Biennale to be held, Dojima River Biennale 2015 is curated by Tom Trevor, the former director at Arnolfini in Bristol, U.K. as the Artistic Director with the theme of “Take Me To The River – Currents of the Contemporary”. “Take Me To The River” is a project about change and exchange in the contemporary space of flows. Exploring the notion of ‘the current’ within contemporary art, and the confluence of multiple temporalities within globalised culture today, it employs the metaphor of the river to examine the experience of being immersed in a world marked by an unprecedented diversity and depth of difference, by the coexistence of incommensurable viewpoints, and by the absence of an all-encompassing narrative (including those of modernity or post-modernity) that will enlist the participation of all.

Exhibiting Artists: Angus Fairhurst, Melanie Gilligan, Simon Fujiwara, Ryoji Ikeda, Hito Steyerl, Michael Stevenson, Motoyuki Shitamichi, Peter Fend, Shimabuku, Superflex, The Play, Vermeir & Heiremans, Yuken Teruya
