Venice Architecture Biennale 2018 preview
The 16th international architecture exhibition of the Venice Biennale, running from 26 May to 25 November, is curated by architects Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara who selected the theme ‘Freespace’ for the event. As well as the main exhibition located at the Giardini and the Arsenale including 71 participants, this year there are the 63 national pavilions – as well as a host of other architectural and cultural events happening across Venice. Dive into our ever-expanding map of highlights...
Titled ‘Dimensions of Citizenship’, the US Pavilion will ‘grapple with the meaning of citizenship as a cluster of rights and responsibilities at the intersection of legal, political, economic, and societal affiliations’. Exploring issues such as immigration and the impact of technology, the curators look at how architecture can be a tool in realising what it means to be a citizen of a nation today. The space will present works by architects, designers, artists, and thinkers who have examined themes of community engagement, political action, and public policy and are putting forward visions of future ways of belonging.
