I forgot there's also a Biennale in Busan, on from September 6th through November 15th. Like the one in Gwangju, this one is a big art exhibition featuring international and domestic artists. I was reminded of that festival while navering around for something else, I swear, and coming across this:

It's a statue on display at the Biennale, and it's given me an excuse to take more depressing news off the top of my page. I got those photos from here, here, and here, respectively.
Besides the Biennale, Busan will also have an International Advertising Festival from October 21st through the 24th. Thanks to James on The Grand Narrative for bringing that up. It sounds neat, but happens to be from Tuesday through Friday, conveniently serving to keep the riff-raff out.
