Introduction
ACC×GB Gwangju - Asia
<Bittersweet>
2022 ACC×GB Gwangju - Asia <Bittersweet> is an exhibition that investigates human dignity through the works of six artists from Gwangju and other Asian regions. The ACC Gwangju–Asia exhibition began in 2017 as a project to link the region of Gwangju to the rest of Asia. This year's ACC Gwangju–Asia exhibition discusses the theme of human dignity in conjunction with Gwangju Biennale under the shared meta-values of democracy, human rights, and peace between the two organizations.

<Bittersweet> is an attempt to take the idea of human dignity from its numbness within the abstract concepts of morality and ethics, and re-examine the idea through visual language. To do so, the exhibition examines the idea of human dignity from the different perspectives and methods of the participating artists. The works of six participating artists start from personal experience and reflect upon ideology, refugees, queerness, the polarization of wealth, human existence, and social systems that create marginalization. By doing so, they expand our perspective of the surrounding areas and present universal human values. The artists examine the present through the past, discuss plurality, and search for methods of praxis. These messages remind us that the realization of human dignity is only possible when one is an autonomous agent who establishes and affirms one's own identity.

Through this exhibition, audience members can face the bitter aspect of our reality and examine the sweet values that these works protect.
