Marking its 10th year this 2014, the Gwangju Biennale will be taking place at Gwangju Biennale Hall and Jungoe Park Culture Belt from September 5 through November 9, 2014.

The 10th Gwangju Biennale will bring together 105 artists from more than 39 countries and will include 35 new commissions, each selected for their relevance to the theme of the Biennale, “Burning Down the House.” The five Halls of the Biennale will be treated as related but thematically differentiated exhibitions, each exploring a different aspect of the title of the biennale.

Single-day tickets and exhibition passes are available at the venue from 8:30 to 17:30.
