Joko AVIANTO -The border between good and evil is terribly frizzy- Yokohama Triennale 2017.

Around 40 international artists have flocked to the Yokohama Museum of Art in Japan, showcasing a series of works in the exhibition, entitled “Islands, Constellations, & Galapagos.”

The artworks at the Yokohama Triennale 2017, including those from Ai Weiwei, Paola Pivi, Maurizio Cattelan, retrace Yokohama’s identity as the country’s first open-port city for foreign trade.

The exhibition, simultaneously examining the themes of global “connectivity” and “isolation” with an ongoing refugee crisis in the background, add fresh perspective to the debates around immigration, protectionism, xenophobia and populism, notes Design Boom.
