    The Gwangju Museum of Art was established on August 1st, 1992 and has been under the management of the Gwangju Biennale Committee ever since the opening of the Biennale Hall in 1995 and the incorporation of the Biennale Support Headquarters in 1996.

    On display at the museum are 560 pieces of artwork ranging from those by classic Korean artists like Heo Baekryeon, O Jiho, Yang Sua, and Im Jiksun to works by modern artists. As part of its efforts to revitalize the region’s art industry, the Gwangju Museum of Art regularly holds various exhibitions and cultural and educational programs.

    The Gwangju Museum is divided into 3 sections: the Main Hall, the Education Promotion Center, and the Biennale Hall. There are 18 galleries and 2 visitor lounges.
