TURN Fes 4 will be held over three days from Friday, August 17 — Sunday, August 19, 2018 at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum in Ueno. The theme of this the fourth TURN Fes is “Pijoppijoppi (Ordinary extraordinary),” a word coined by TURN supervisor Katsuhiko Hibino. This event teaches participants about the “differences” generated by encounters with each person’s differing experience of “ordinary,” and creates a framework for people to enjoy these differences.
As well as the artists, facilities and communities taking part in the TURN project, an array of guests who responded to our call will bring the festival alive with exhibitions, performances,workshops, talks and tours.
My ordinary is your extraordinary. Your ordinary is my extraordinary.
What’s ordinary-extraordinary is that these are always found together.

We will conduct a number of tours, including a program of tours around Fes with participating artists and “art communicators” from “Tobira Project” (an initiative by Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and Tokyo University of the Arts). Visitors will find a variety of ways to enjoy Fes.
Over the three days, we will hold over 20 talks on welfare facilities, psychiatric hospitals, regional communities, SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) etc. and their relationships to art.
In addition numerous artists are scheduled to take part, with a variety of different programs planned.
