Gwangju Biennale Special Projects to Begin on August

 

In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Gwangju Biennale, the Gwangju Biennale Foundation will operate special projects in the Gwangju Museum of Art and across the city from August 8th to November 9th when the 2014 Gwangju Biennale wraps up.

Entitled, ‘Sweet Due – after 1980’, the upcoming special project will feature various artworks and performances as well as artistic lectures throughout the project period.

Set to take place at Gwangju Museum of Art, the special art exhibition will showcase art pieces themed after state violence and its effect on people and the treatment for violent acts conducted by the government.

The artworks were produced by a total of 57 artists from 17 countries including Taiwan and Japan.

In addition, a series of lectures by Chilean public artist, Alfredo Jaar and London-based Serpentine Art Gallery chairman, Hans Urich Obrist, will be held throughout the special project.

Various participatory events themed after the May 18th Democratic Movement will be also held from August 8th to November 9th on May 18th Road at Geumnamro Street and at other historic sites.
