This edition’s theme is “Minds Rising, Spirits Turning”; it is curated by Defne Ayas and Natasha Ginwala and it brings together 69 visual, digital and group artists from all the continents.

You can read bellow a bit about the 13th Gwangju Biennale through a text extracted from its website:

“Minds Rising, Spirits Tuning sets out to examine the spectrum of the extended mind through artistic and theoretical means. Directed by Defne Ayas and Natasha Ginwala, the 13th Gwangju Biennale (26 February–9 May, 2021) will feature a dynamic program encompassing an exhibition, a performance program, an online publishing platform and publications, and a series of public forums bringing together artists, theoretical scientists, and systems thinkers. The Biennale argues for the primacy of plurality, positing that points of origin and influence ought to be accessed not only through the dominant technological systems and machinic vocabularies traceable to the West but also relate to heterodox ancestries”.
