The first Gwangju Biennale featured 660 artists from 58 countries, exhibiting over 817 artworks. The theme “Beyond the Borders” conveyed a message of global citizenship that transcended divisions between ideologies, territories, religion, race, culture, humanity, and the arts. Aesthetically, it manifested itself in art’s ability to overcome meaningless pluralism and intended to establish new orders and relationships between the arts and mankind.

The exhibition was composed of six regionally focused sections: West Europe and East Europe / North America / South America / Asia / The Middle East and Africa / Korea and Oceania
