The Yokohama Triennale started in 2001 as an international exhibition of contemporary art held every three years, and will soon reach its 20th anniversary. This exhibition introduces the latest trends in a wide range of countries, from works of internationally active artists to emerging artists, and continuously sends new values and new culture from Yokohama to the world for international exchange. We have been aiming to contribute to mutual understanding with.

In the 7th exhibition Yokohama Triennale 2020 "AFTERGLOW", Raqs Media Collective by three artists based in New Delhi, India will be appointed as artistic directors, and they will go beyond time and space with them. Invite you to a journey of thought.

When analog television was once available, it was said that the sandstorm that flowed after the broadcast ended contained electromagnetic waves called cosmic microwave background radiation, which is a remnant of the Big Bang. The title AFTERGLOW is the word chosen by us to refer to the fragments of light emitted at the moment of the birth of the universe that we have unknowingly touched in our daily lives. Raqs Media Collective considers that the energy of destruction that occurred in ancient times has been a source of new creation and has created this world and life over a long time, and the modern world is also at various levels. We believe that human activities have been carried out in the continuity of destruction/toxicity and recovery/healing. How to realize a coexisting way of life instead of eliminating poisonous things in a rapidly changing world. By sharing this question and continuing thinking with artists, viewers, and others involved in this exhibition in various ways, along with Raqs Media Collective, "Yokohama Triennale 2020"Will be shaped.

The Yokohama Triennale 2020 is not only a regular exhibition, but also consists of two parts, an event called "episōdo" that starts in November 2019 and is held not only in Yokohama but also abroad. We will add a book called "Source Book" to share the starting point (source) of thought, and try to expand our awareness of the world.
