Gwangju Design Biennale confirms this year’s theme: “Futures”

 

The theme of the 2017 Gwangju Design Biennale, scheduled to open in September, has been confirmed.

 

Biennale Director Jang Dong Hoon announced the theme, entitled “Futures”, along with basic plans for the event at a press conference held at the Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry Thursday.

 

Jang explained that this year’s Biennale will present various discourses and explorations of the light and shadow sides of the world in years to come.

 

He also added the event will focus on internationalization, popularization, industrialization, and systematization, strengthening the role of Gwangju as an Asian design hub.

 

Together with the Gwangju Design Center, the Biennale organization will complete curator selection by the end of this month and confirm participating designers and companies in April.

 

This year's event will be held from September 8th to October 23rd at the Gwangju Biennale Exhibition Hall and the National Asia Cultural Center.
