In Mestre, curated by Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara. An installation by architects Sami Rintala and Dagur Eggertsson, also built to host a series of events scheduled in Forte Marghera.
Applied Arts Pavilion
Sale d’Armi in the Arsenale, curated by Christopher Turner and Olivia Horsfall Turner. The project reflects upon the future of social housing by presenting a fragment of the social housing estate, Robin Hood Gardens, which was designed by Alison and Peter Smithson in East London and completed in 1972.
Renewed for the third consecutive year, the collaboration between La Biennale and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London has made possible this exhibition.
