Based in Japan, The Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale takes place every three years and is considered the largest art festival in the world. Visitors are encouraged to explore 200 villages spanning around 190,000 acres in the industrial port of Niigata, Japan.
Over a period of 50 days, art lovers can admire the works of more than 160 artists scattered all over the land. Human interaction with nature was this year’s theme and inspired each piece. According to the organizers of the event, the idea is to interact with the land, which is deemed the real canvas for the artwork.
