Dojima River Biennale 2013 entitled “Little Water” will be held this summer at the Dojima River Forum with Rudy Tseng, Taiwanese curator and Member of Tate Gallery Asia-Pacific Acquisitions Committee as Artistic Director. It is the third event in the series, following the success of the first Biennale in 2009, and the second in 2011. By linking art with many other areas, it promises to bring new horizons for art into sight.

The Dojima River Forum is set on the beautiful riverbanks of Dojima River, in the heart of the traditional Osaka. At Dojima River, water plays an important part to the scene and the everyday life of the people.
In history, the rich culture and civilization of Asia arose along river valleys. Simultaneously to the development of agriculture economy, poetry and literature came to formation. Inspired by the beauty of flowing water and its significance in many different aspects Mr. Tseng reinvestigates the traditional meaning of the water and explores its role in many different aspects of agriculture, ecology, literature and human sensibility. Tseng invites works, which embrace the complexity and diversity of this most basic element of nature and its poetic beauty while acknowledging its unique values.
