The Seoul International Media Art Biennale has continually served as a stage for the historical evolution of new media art – as opposed to most other exhibitions devoted to this genre being no more than single-bout events – and positioned itself as one of the leading festivities garnering major attention both within and outside the country.
The Seoul International Media Art Biennale (media_city seoul) is an international media art festival – on view in Seoul Museum of Art and neighboring venues – that presents and explores the convergence of media technologies and the contemporary arts. Hosted by the city of Seoul as a public cultural biennial, Seoul International Media Art Biennale seeks to integrate the revolutionary worlds of new technologies and contemporary trans-disciplinary art.
Within the framework of the city’s vision as a media metropolis, the biennial brings together artists, scholars, curators, corporate visionaries, and audiences from around the world to participate in a program of art exhibitions and subsidiary events. Seoul International Media Art Biennale aims to firmly establish Seoul as a hub of information technology, media arts and new digital culture.
