The biennale is an Italian word for biennial (every 2 years) international exhibition, derived from the Venice biennial. In Korea, the Seoul Biennale, the Gwangju Biennale, and the Busan Biennale are well known, and Seoul City, one of the world’s leading international cities, holding the Seoul Biennale every two years(odd) under the issues of “Architecture and Urbanism”
‘Seoul biennale of Architecture and Urbanism’ (SBAU) is a venue for harmony that interacts with cities around the world, about artists and their work, but about issues and suggestions that explore the future of the city we live. Therefore, the Seoul Biennale will consist of a pilot year for international cooperation, research, and progress, and an event year to present the results in the form of exhibitions and participation programs every other year.
The exhibitions include Thematic and Cities Exhibitions, which shows the most innovative initiatives occurring in cities around the world, as well as Global Studios, Live Projects, workshops and other programs that engage public participation.
In autumn, We hope the many people will be able to enjoy Seoul City with the SBAU.
