The Gwangju Museum of Art opened in 1992 for the first time among public art museums in Korea for the development of local culture and art, and greatly contributed to laying the foundation for the establishment of the Gwangju Biennale in 1995, and has been striving to provide various cultural services to citizens. Newly built and relocated in 2007 in Jungoe Park, the northwestern gateway of Gwangju, the museum is expanding its international exchanges with major art museums around the world as well as developing local art culture along with the Gwangju Biennale and the Asian Culture Center.
The main building has a total of 6 exhibition rooms, a children’s art museum, a cultural center, a library, a seminar room, an outdoor performance hall, and a cafe. Jungoe Park, where the Gwangju Museum of Art is located, is also home to the Gwangju Biennale, Gwangju Folk Museum, Gwangju National Museum, and Gwangju Culture and Arts Center, making it a representative cultural attraction in Gwangju where nature and culture and art breathe together.
