Gwangju Biennale

Founded in 1995 in Gwangju South Corea

Burning Down the House
05.09 – 09.11 / 2014

The 10th Gwangju Biennale: Burning Down the House explores the process of burning and transformation, a cycle of obliteration and renewal witnessed throughout history. Evident in aesthetics, historical events, and an increasingly rapid course of redundancy and renewal in commercial culture, the Biennale reflects on this process of, often violent, events of destruction or self-destruction―burning the home one occupies―followed by the promise of the new and the hope for change.

The exhibition is curated by Jessica Morgan, Artistic Director of the Gwangju Biennale and the Daskalopoulos Curator, International Art, Tate Modern. Fatos Ustek and Emiliano Valdes are Associate Curators for the Biennale, Enna Bae is Associate Curator for Performance and Teresa Kittler is Assistant Curator.
