Busan Biennale 2010

Living in Evolution

The Busan Biennale 2010 proposed a theme of 'Living in Evolution' and exhibited Sep. 11 to Nov. 20, 2010 at Busan Museum of Art, Busan Yachting Center and Gwangalli Beach. It was designed to identify relations between man's finite life and their creation, such as history and civilization, and to discover insights on relations between arts and society, the present and the future, and me and the world. Viewers had some to look back upon their daily life while enjoying artworks. Also they experienced 'evolution' of individuals and mankind.
