Sado Island Galaxy Art Festival 2018

Just as the present connects the past with the future, this art festival was created to connect the art culture of the world with the island of Sado. Please enjoy the various exhibits and art events we have planned all around the different regions of Sado.

By investigating the nature and history of Sado as well as the folklore and legends from the region, we hope to offer a new creative space with influences from within and beyond the island, and create a “galaxy” of glimmering aesthetics.
