12th Gwangju Biennale: Imagined Borders

07 Sep 201811 Nov 2018

The first Gwangju Biennale featured 660 artists from 58 countries, exhibiting over 817 artworks. The theme “Beyond the Borders” conveyed a message of global citizenship that transcended divisions between ideologies, territories, religion, race, culture, humanity, and the arts. Twelve years later, the 12th Gwangju Biennale themed “Imagined Borders” presents two international programmes: the GB Commission and the Pavilion Projects to explore the founding principles of the Biennale: democracy, human rights and peace.
