The Gwangju Biennale Foundation has announced the details of two international programmes, taking place during the 13th Gwangju Biennale, from April 1 – May 9, 2021: the GB Commission and the Pavilion Projects. The two international projects were conceived in 2018 to explore the Biennale’s history from different perspectives and stimulate international exchange.

The GB Commission will feature a series of site-specific installations by six international artists: Tarek Atoui, Sung Hwan Kim, Lee Bul, Minouk Lim, Ho Tzu Nyen and Chiharu Shiota. Their works will be on view throughout Gwangju, along with the restaging of two previous GB Commission installations, Kader Attia’s three-channel film “Shifting Borders”, and Mike Nelson’s “Mirror reverb (the blinding of a building, a notation for another)”. The programme aims to retrace history, artefacts and traditions of the city of Gwangju and the origin of the Biennale.

For this edition, the Pavilion Project will feature two art organisations to explore the fundamental concepts of Biennale. Kunsthaus Pasquart of Switzerland will present the project “ALONE TOGETHER by Anna Anderegg at the Eunam Museum of Arts. The Asia Culture Center Creation Space 5 will display “Double Echoing”, the project by the Taiwan Contemporary Culture Lab (C-LAB), the National Human Rights Museum of Taipei (NHRM), and the Taipei Performing Arts Center.
