13th Gwangju Biennale: Curated by Defne Ayas and Natasha Ginwala
Titled 'Minds Rising, Spirits Tuning', the 13th Gwangju Biennale will be held on 26 February to 9 May 2021.
Following the first collective site visit with a select group of participating artists and the first successful public event with talks and performances in Gwangju in October 2019, the Artistic Directors of the 2020 Gwangju Biennale Defne Ayas and Natasha Ginwala, together with their team, continue to open dialogues that usually remain internal to the Biennale’s production. Inviting artists and local interlocutors to exchange their research, the second public program takes place at Perpetual Spring Pavilion in MMCA Seoul on January 7, 2020, 4–6pm. This program builds on the previous collective research trip, with site visits to 5.18 Archives, Gwangju Theater, Shamanism Museum, and Baekyangsa Temple, among other venues that help the artists to anchor their research questions in Korea.
