Busan Biennale 2020 seeks Artistic Director

posted 20 May 2019


Busan Biennale Open Call for Artistic Director (http://blog.busanbiennale.org/)

The Busan Biennale Organizing Committee (hereinafter referred to as the committee) is holding open recruitment to select the next artistic director to plan Busan Biennale 2020. Applications will be accepted between May 15 and June 3. The committee will conduct reviews before making its final artistic director selection in July 2019. The committee previously used open recruitment to select the artistic director of Busan Biennale 2018. Numerous planners from Korea and overseas applied at the time, showing their active commitment to new discourses in contemporary art. To promote the transparent and rational management of the follow-up exhibition to Busan Biennale 2018 and discover new curators, the committee is adopting the open recruitment approach once again to select the Busan Biennale 2020 artistic director. As the 20th anniversary of the committee’s establishment, the year 2020 could also be seen as an occasion for taking the next step forward in transforming one of Asia’s representative biennales into a global biennale exhibition. The individual(team) selected as artistic director will be responsible for directing the exhibition—including selection of the theme, artists, and artworks and related budgeting—and for planning exhibition-related events. The artistic director will also be responsible for duties related to publicity and funding. Busan Biennale 2020 is scheduled to take place in September 2020.
