Major Changes Ahead for
Korean International Ceramic Biennale (KICB)!
The Korean International Ceramic Biennale (KICB), which celebrates its
tenth edition in 2019, is expected to undergo significant changes, especially
in regard to its “international competition”. The KICB 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.
