The Gwangju Design Biennale, hosted by Gwangju City and organized by the Gwangju Institute of Design
Promotion (GIDP) 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. We pursue for constant change and innovation to always seek for something new in order to solve our concerns and uncertainties about the present and the future. How can we solve numerous problems that face humanity today? Based on this question, the Gwangju Design Biennale 2019 will share human-centered solutions of diverse sectors and social roles of design.
