Exhibition Hall,
Cheongju Old Tobacco Processing Plant
Republic of Korea
September 11 – October 20, 2013
Cheongju International Craft Biennale is pleased to present Something Old Something New, the new theme for the 2013 Cheongju International Craft Biennale. Craft can evolve from something familiar into something fresh and new within a certain time and space. In turn, the new craft which may at first seem novel and unfamiliar can breed familiarity with time. Our intention is to acknowledge the value of craft which has developed between familiarity and originality in the course of time and space, and to explore its various futures. With this in mind, the 8th Cheongju International Craft Biennale invites the diverse and creative works by influential established artists and new emerging artists.
Metal craft or metalwork, Ceramics, Woodwork, Fibers, Glass, etc., as well as other 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional works that creatively constructs the contemporary craft art values of functionality or aesthetics using natural or man-made materials.
