    Every year, the Yebisu International Festival for Art & Alternative Visions takes place at Ebisu, a hip section of Tokyo close to Meguro and Daikanyama.

    Highlights of the Art & Alternative Visions Festival 2020

    ◆ Theme: The imagination of time*

    The 12th annual meet up will take place under the theme of “The imagination of time (*)” [the original translation].

    In visual arts, time can be fluid, nonlinear. Time goes backwards as well as forwards freely. The festival will highlight the fluidity of time in a selection of visual works.

    ◆ Screening of films & videos

    The 2020 programme includes a special screening of works by the experimental filmmaker Ben Rivers, and the projection of videos and films by Japanese and guest artists.
