Open call for artistic director of the 12th Seoul Mediacity Biennale

12th Seoul Mediacity Biennale

The Seoul Museum of Art is pleased to announce its open call for the position of artistic director of the 12th Seoul Mediacity Biennale.

Since its inauguration in 2000 as an initiative of the Seoul Metropolitan Government, Seoul Mediacity Biennale has earned international recognition for its experimental engagement with contemporaneity and the changes of media in the city. The Biennale has shared conceptual experiences on media from its precursor exhibition Seoul in Media, which was held three times between 1996 and 1999. Since then, the Biennale has presented eleven editions, each embodying varying ideas and activities that resonate with its respective time. In order to continue the pursuit of novel modes of interpreting the Biennale’s identity and extending the project’s historical continuum, Seoul Museum of Art seeks to appoint the artistic director for the forthcoming 12th Seoul Mediacity Biennale through an open call process. We encourage the interest and application of competent, creative and thoughtful contemporary art planners to lead this project towards its next iteration.
