Various Venues in Gwangju

06 Sep 201811 Nov 2018

The GB Commission seeks to explore the history of the city of Gwangju and the origin of the Gwangju Biennale, founded to sublimate the scars of the Gwangju Democratization Movement in 1980 into culture and arts. In the process, the Foundation hopes to deliver the Biennale’s ongoing values to audiences far beyond the city limits.

Four participating artists develop new site specific works, exploring the historic sites throughout the city of Gwangju in which their work will be displayed.
