Artists around the world are invited to take part in the international competition organized by the Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale 2015 for the spring of next year.
The International Competition of GICBiennale 2015 whole-heartedly welcomes works by artists that re-interpret traditional values of ceramics in truly unique ways, breaking away from the conventional dichotomy of ceramics as design and ceramics as art. Ceramic artists are pushing the boundaries of ceramics ever outward, and the boundary between ceramics as design and ceramics as art is increasingly becoming blurred. This competition will focus on the possibilities for ceramic art to expand its territory by discovering artworks of mixed materials and made by techniques of other genres and ceramics fused with other genres of art, not to mention the values inherent to ceramics.
The International Competition of GICBiennale 2015 will be an opportunity to display your imagination and creativity to the fullest. Come and join this competition that will open the future of ceramics, presenting diverse issues facing us today including political, societal, religious, cultural, and environmental issues along with aesthetic values.
In previous competition, we had 1,875 artists from 71 countries who submitted 3,362 artworks. This competition will focus on the possibilities for ceramic art to expand from its territory.
The Grands Prize will receive $48,100 with solo exhibition opportunity for GICB 2017.
Submission period starts on September 1, 2014
