Busan Biennale from September 01 to September 12 2020
Various locations Busan
The Busan Biennale originated with the Busan Youth Biennale, an event staged in 1981 as a voluntary effort by young people in the city of Busan. The event later became known as the Pusan International Contemporary Art Festival (PICAF). As the Busan Biennale, it has been held a total of nine editions between 2002 and 2018 in the pursuit of new possibilities for contemporary art and an experimental spirit. Emerging as it did from the pure commitment of Busan-area artists, the Busan Biennale is rooted in native energy and youth. A coastal city in southern South Korea, Busan has played a pivotal role in the country’s contemporary history, while the Busan Biennale’s exhibitions have been characterized by their openness and dynamism.
