Hybridizing Earth, Discussing Multitude is the theme of this year’s Busan Biennale, which will feature 118 artist from 22 different countries. The addition of F1963 and the Busan Museum of Art to the event will create ample space for the hosting of two exhibitions (Project 1 and Project 2) and one seminar (Project 3). Curators from Korea, China and Japan will focus on each country’s avant-garde art from the ‘60s to the ‘80s for Project 1. They will introduce first- and second-generation Chinese artists, who worked between the ‘60s and the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989; Japanese avant-garde art during the country’s economic boom after WWII; and Korean monochromes and Minjung (grassroots) art that were preserved by those who were protesting military dictatorship and pursuing freedom during the ‘70s and ‘80s. Through these works, you will be able to see the avant-garde art produced in these three countries as framed in the larger scope of world art history. You will also be able to take part in various programs that are geared towards allowing the audience to be able to “talk about the world” with the famous French avant-garde artist Orlan or to learn about the biennale from Yun Chae-ga, the event’s artistic director.
