Copyright (C) 2018 Okayama Art Summit Executive committee.

Held in Okayama City once every three years, the Okayama Art Summit is a large-scale international exhibition of contemporary art .Central Okayama City—the location of the summit—has been a cultural hub in constant change with the times for over 400 years. The fusion between the historical and cultural resources cultivated here and the "creativity of art and culture" that defines contemporary art is an effective means of introducing Okayama's modern charms to the world. The city serves as a means of connecting the various people who visit Okayama regardless of differences such as nationality, gender, or age, and the power hidden within contemporary art helps to deepen those ties between those individuals, whether they are visiting Okayama from elsewhere in Japan or from abroad. Contemporary art exists to inspire the imagination and tobecome a driving force in creating the world of tomorrow. With Pierre Huyghe taking the reins as artistic director, the Okayama Art Summit 2019 brings the artistic touch to various historical and cultural sites near Okayama Castle and Okayama Korakuen Garden for two months between September 27 and November 24,2019. The event offers visitors the opportunity not only to see exciting exhibits but also to experience the thought processes of the artists, enabling a unique interaction with art that transcends time and space—all from the historic city of Okayama.
