Gwangju has long been renowned for its tradition, customs, culture and arts. It is home to the Gwangju Biennale, held every two years to celebrate the worldwide artistic accomplishments by accommodating works of both Asian and contemporary Western art on the basis of the city's own illustrious cultural legacy and heritage.
Gwangju is also a leading industrial city in Korea, having achieved a cumulative total of over 10 billion dollars worth of export in the fields of optical science, automobiles, electronics, and so forth. One of the five main cities in the world with advanced optical technology- along with Germany, Russia, and Japan- Gwangju boasted its status as Korea's one and only cluster of the optical industry at the 2009 Gwangju World Optics Expo.
