AIR21 : Kanazawa Fringe 2016

2016.6.11 (Sat.) - 2016.9.11 (Sun.)

"AIR21: Kanazawa Fringe" is an artist-in-residence program that ventures outside of the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa to examine the challenges, people, and locations of Kanazawa from an artistic perspective. Launched in 2015 under the title of Museum x KNZ Fringe - Meeting with the City, the program was renamed in 2016 to "AIR21: Kanazawa Fringe". Five directors invite artists and creators from around Japan and overseas to collaborate on seven research projects from June to September. The results attained from these projects are to be utilized in a new artist-in-residence program planned for 2017.

* The word "fringe" refers to something regarded as peripheral or marginal. In this program, artists invited from around Japan and overseas interact with various fringe elements of Kanazawa, namely the city and its people, to create new works together during their stay. The program's long-term goal is to transform Kanazawa into a hub for creative activities by implementing a creative cyclical spiral of (1) interacting with the city and its people, (2) proposing new perspectives and values, (3) undertaking creative activities, and (4) bringing about change in the participating artists, the city, and its people.
