In August 2014, Yokohama witnessed the birth of a new triennale, the Yokohama Paratriennale. Here, disabled individuals possessed of keen senses and talents encounter highly-skilled professionals from a wide range of fields, galvanizing one another and experimenting together to create new forms of artistic expression. This exhibition showcases ways in which participants complement and enhance each other, and is filled with a powerful energy generated by the new challenges taking place. Individual people and society at large will be swept up in this unpredictable entity of a festival, which will progress and evolve in ways that no one can foresee. Those who enter this world will forget their.
