Project Jeju is a substitute event for the 2nd Jeju Biennale, which was canceled due to COVID-19, and aims to revitalize the stagnant art and cultural sector of Jeju, provide opportunities for Jeju residents to enjoy cultural activities, and contribute to the creation of an island of art and culture that reflects Jeju’s unique characteristics.

The 25 artworks submitted to the exhibition consist of multimedia pieces, installations, handicrafts and videos, and address the changes that art exerts on our lives, environments, ways of experiencing, and perceptions within the everchanging context of social connections.
Jeju Museum of Art also plans to collaborate with various events that are taking place in Jeju during the exhibition period for Project Jeju. In addition, the art events taking place in Jeju have been made available for viewing outside of the island through the project’s official website (www.projectjeju.kr) and YouTube channel (https://bit.ly/3BthVpd). The event is comprised of the presentation on the project’s concept and exhibition content, interviews with participating artists, and video clips of partner events.

Director Lee Na-yeon of the Jeju Museum of Art expressed her high expectations by remarking, “The numerous events and exhibitions that will take place alongside this exhibition will serve as a barometer that vividly demonstrates Jeju’s ‘contemporariness’ today.”
