The Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale (GICB), which celebrates its tenth edition in 2019, is expected to undergo significant changes, especially in regard to its "international competition". The GICB aims to establish a platform dedicated to promoting communication and exchanges between artists and the public. The upcoming biennale will present diverse programs such as the academic symposium and workshop in a comprehensive, multitiered format within the framework of the international competition, as opposed to the past in which the biennale hosted programs individually.
The GiCB International Competition 2019- as an exhibition is a gateway for newly emerging artists to acquire a presence in the global art scene- will offer diversified support programs that will help artists expand their world view. It will continue to retain its tradition as a "competition", though with improvements in institutional arrangements including application conditions, exhibition format, screening criteria, and support programs, yet simultaneously aim to present a new paradigm for art events, as an "international exhibition" leading the trends in ceramics and an "art forum" bringing together workshops, performances, and seminars.
