The Gwangju Design Biennale, hosted by Gwangju City and organized by the Gwangju Design Center (GDC) Foundation, is held biennially at the Gwangju Biennale Exhibition Hall within the Gwangju Jungoe Park and other downtown areas in odd-numbered years between September & October, with various exhibitions and events.
Along with exhibitions containing the discourses as the Design Biennale’s values, the Gwangju Design Biennale, is attempting to present the future and expand aesthetic, practical and economic values as designs’ attributes.
Future is full of anxiousness, expectation and fear. How will our future look like under the new paradigm of the 4th Industrial Revolution? How can we prepare for it? Central to the theme of "FUTURES" the 7th edition of Gwangju Design Biennale aims to envision design's role, its vision and its value in the near future.
