The largest of the Gwangju Biennale’s exhibition venues, the Biennale Hall, treats each of its five large-scale galleries as a meta score. Several new commissions by artists, as well as archival and historical loans from major collections on Korean Shamanism and folk painting, will be on view. The ground floor is envisioned as a social space that, for the first time, includes free access to the public. Works on view conjure sensorial entryways into the present while also inviting audiences to experience commemorative aesthetics and sacred emblems of protection and recovery, laying bare the groundwork of collective intelligence in a networked society.
