The central international exhibition develops from the Central Pavilion at the Giardini to the Arsenale, and includes works by 71 participants.
Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara have used their Manifesto, issued in June 2017, as a reference point for putting this exhibition together. As the first point they wrote:
FREESPACE describes a generosity of spirit and a sense of humanity at the core of architecture's agenda, focusing on the quality of space itself. Freespace focuses on architecture’s ability to provide free and additional spatial gifts to those who use it and on its ability to address the unspoken wishes of strangers.
