Pavilion Project

The Pavilion Project aims to widen the network of contemporary art in Korea and the international art scene. Concurrent with the main exhibition of the Gwangju Biennale, the project is composed of independent exhibitions that are organically connected to the biennale. The Pavilion Project discovers historical sites in Gwangju with new perspectives, gathers international audience to Gwangju, and offers opportunities to local artists to engage in the international art scene. In the 12th Gwangju Biennale in 2018, the project hosted exhibitions organized by Palais de Tokyo from France, Helsinki International Artist Programme, and Philippines Contemporary Art Network. The Pavilion Project for the 13th Gwangju Biennale Pavilion Project includes more diverse art institutions such as the Taiwan Contemporary Culture Lab and PasquartKunsthaus Centre d’art in Switzerland.
