“Kanazawa Fringe” is a plurality of in-residence art projects by artists and creators from Japan and abroad who are creating new artworks in the context of their discoveries in Kanazawa. Spilling from the museum out into the city, they develop their projects in a circulatory spiral—first, “meeting” Kanazawa’s districts, people and issues from an art perspective, then making “proposal” of new approaches, initiating creative “action,” and inducing gentle “change.” The goal of all this, over the long term, will be to make Kanazawa a hub of creative activity. Projects are implemented in two-year cycles. On the basis of research conducted last year by project directors, in-residence production of new works will be publically shown in November 2017.

Participating creators:
Brian LOBEL (performer, director)
Sokerissa! (dance)
INADA Shunsuke (chef)
