 The Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale (GICB) is calling artists from all over the world to apply for the GICB International Competition 2019. Artists are invited to submit works of art either artistic or practical, made from clay (ceramics) or made with the theme of clay.

The Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale (GICB), which celebrates its tenth edition in 2019, is expected to undergo significant changes, especially in regard to its “international competition”. The GICB aims to establish a platform dedicated to promoting communication and exchanges between artists and the public. The upcoming biennale will present diverse programs such as the academic symposium and workshop in a comprehensive, multitiered format within the framework of the International Competition, as opposed to the past in which the biennale hosted programs individually. The GICB International Competition 2019 – as an exhibition is a gateway for newly emerging artists to acquire a presence in the global art scene.

The GICB International Competition Exhibition will take place from August 2nd until November 10th, 2019 (tentative) at the Icheon World Ceramic Center and will consist of Online Exhibition which will include 300 artists who have been selected from the 1st round of portfolio screening and Exhibition which will present 40 artists who have been selected from the 2nd round of portfolio screening.
