This month: "The Aesthetics of Emptiness" > International Festival Japan Contemporary Arts in Venice

Posted On 10-02-2022

From 21st to 24th February 2022 "The Aesthetics of Emptiness", International Festival Japan Contemporary Arts in Venice will take place in Venice. This initiative has been possible thanks to the collaboration among Venice Academy of Fine Arts, Music Conservatory Benedetto Marcello and Ca' Foscari University of Venice and it will be a great chance to experience a multidisciplinary path through Japanese art and culture , a three-day event throughout the historical centre of Venice which will involve Japanese musicians and artists, international teachers and students from the three Venetian higher education institutions.

The Festival will include musical performances, concerts, workshops, conferences, meetings with Japanese artists and guided tours that will be held in the beautiful locations of the Academy, Conservatory and Ca' Foscari University. The common denominator of the whole programme is the discovery of the fascinating Japanese world explored through multiform approaches and multidisciplinarity.

A press conference will be held on February 15th at 11am at Palazzo Pisani, the seat of the Benedetto Marcello Conservatory. The event programme is available online. Previous registration will be compulsory to be able to take part in the events , as well as a valid EU Green Pass certificate.
