First 21st Century Pavilion to debut at the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015

Australia will premiere the first 21st-century and only water-facing pavilion in Venice’s Giardini at the 56th Venice Biennale, opening on May 9, 2015. The new building, designed by Denton Corker Marshall will be the first building to be constructed in Venice in the past two decades.

Conceived as a white box within a black box, the new Australian Pavilion will stand-out in contrast against the Venice skyline with its black granite exterior and stark, geometric silhouette. Large-scale operable panels function as an envelope, allowing natural light to stream through the galleries and transform the shape of the structure in accordance to the multifaceted needs of installing work by contemporary artists.

Open from May 9 until November 22, 2015, the space will be inaugurated by Australia’s artist representative Fiona Hall, whose immersive, multi-sensory installation will examine environmental degradation, capitalism, politics, among other pressing global issues.
