Oku-Noto Triennale 奥能登芸術祭

Contemporary art in tranquil, abundant nature

The Oku-Noto Triennale art festival takes place every three years in Suzu, a remote city on the farthest tip of the Noto Peninsula. The festival sets contemporary art installations against a backdrop of untouched nature, ocean views, rice terraces, and salt farms. Local residents provide tours and lectures that bridge the gap between contemporary art and the area’s deep-rooted heritage.

The festival was first held in 2017. Some of the works still stand permanently in the area and are open to the public.
