The Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial 2000 was held by the six municipalities of Echigo-Tsumari in southern Niigata Prefecture. In addition to the main objective of revitalizing the Tsumari region through art, the Triennial also opens doors for exhibitions that reject an urban focus. It is an attempt to showcase works that are strongly connected with place, and escape the confines of the museum.
Images of works are accompanied by individual texts. The catalogue also includes artist statements, biographies, and short articles on the Triennial in Japanese with brief English summaries.
