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 upcoming edition of the Biennale will present diverse programs such as the academic symposium and workshop in a comprehensive, multi-tiered 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 showcasing the present and trends of global ceramics and acting as 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 worldview.

We’d like to ask for your enthusiastic participation in International Competition 2019!
