Suh Byung-soo Organizing Committee's Greeting

Greetings everyone.
This is Suh Byung-soo, the chairman of the Busan Biennale Organizing Committee.

The Organizing Committee was first established in 1999 as Busan International Art Festival Organizing Committee and changed its name in 2001 as the 'Busan Biennale'. After then, through opening the Busan Biennales and promting and expanding Korean art culture and inspired the specific characteristics of the local arts and their productions in purposes of improving international stance of the local art and at the same time consolidating contemporary art within local.

The Busan Biennale, created spontaneously together with Busan Youth Biennale, Sea Arts Festival and Busan International Outdoor Sculpture Symposium, has become a pride of the local art in Busan. The last iterations of the Busan Biennale have been highly acclaimed as their highly elaborated exhbitions that aptly represented the status quo of contemporary art along with experimental artworks invited. Besides, the Busan Biennale has become a festive event in which citizens can actively participate.

Bringing together with experimental contemporary art exhibitions and diverse local programs, we will put our best efforts to establish Busan as a cultural place.

Thank you very much for your continued interests and supports.

Chairman of the Busan Biennale Organizing Committee,
Mayor of Busan Metropolitan City Suh Byung-soo
