The 2009 Incheon Women Artists’ Biennale explores women artists’ understanding and perception of space; where they reside, struggle, and strive to realize their dreams. It embraces their psychological, personal, and individual spaces as well as the socio-political and cultural realms that affect and influence their existence as artists and women.
The global stage imposes upon us quantum leap transformations, often those escaping even our personal radar, one that is vital to our survival. Women artists as individuals are faced with competitive physical, social, and cyber-space situations. The 2009 Incheon Women Artists’ Biennale welcomes international contemporary artists who embrace these issues to exhibit under three subsections entitled “Personal Space,” “Fluid Interior,” and “Contested Space.”
