Are you in Milano this weekend? Check out the Triennale di Milano. Our funding partner, Punkt., is sponsoring a collective exhibition 'Made in Japan'. The Triennale has also invited Punkt. to participate at the exhibition itself in the a part of the exhibition dedicated to the anniversary of 3/11, environmental protection, and new and renewable energies. Punkt. is presenting the reconstruction work of Architecture for Humanity in Tohoku region. The showcase is the Akahama Covered Alley project, which has made possible because of their generous support through 'Punkt. for Japan: Still Time to Help'.
The 2012 collective exhibition of the Triennale focuses on Japan: Japanese culture and arts, and its recovery following the earthquake last year. On 11 March, one year after the earthquake, the festival will dedicate a special event and debate to the Fukushima disaster. The festival will explore Japan's contemporary art and on the film side, the festival will present a retrospective dedicated to Japanese director Naomi Kawase. A performance by choreographer Sisina Augusta and Japanese videoartist Takane Ezoe will open the Tasselli d'arte - Elements of Art section (and the 2012 edition of the festival). The exhibition runs from March 3 to April 1 2012 at the Triennale di Milano.
