'The International Incheon Women Artists’ Biennale is distinguished from other biennials held internationally and domestically by its exclusive focus on women artists. The International Incheon Women Artists’ Biennale reflects the interest in women artists in each country and their increased numbers in the art world overall. Visitors of the biennale have the opportunity to learn about the region’s historical significance that defines Incheon as an important hub city in Northeastern Asia.' - excerpt from Biennial Foundation

'Terra Incognita', the main exhibition of the 2011 edition, is based on the concept of 'Multiverse', which suggests that our universe would be just one among infinite universes, and that within these, places could exist where our doubles reside and unknowingly mirror our actions. The exhibition brings together artists who address such issues as the secrets of the universe, communications, and ongoing conflicts between Israel and Palestine, India and Pakistan, and between two Koreas.
