15th Gwangju Biennale

The 15th Gwangju Biennale Pavilion

The Gwangju Biennale Pavilion began in 2018 with the participation of three organizations, aiming to expand the network of art and cultural institutions in Korea and abroad. The number of pavilions and participating organizations grew steadily to nine in 2023, and in 2024, the 15th Gwangju Biennale Pavilion will feature 31 pavilions across Gwangju, including Yangnim-dong and Dongmyeong-dong, with creative artistic entities from around 30 countries, cities, and institutions.


The Gwangju Biennale pavilions will not only resonate with Pansori, a soundscape of the 21st century, but also generate a wealth of sights and discourse by building distinctive exhibitions that showcase different angles of view. A variety of events and programs expand the art experience for visitors and inspire imagination in the community.
