Denton Corker Marshall’s Australian Pavilion to Debut at the 56th Venice Biennale

The first building to be constructed in Venice in the past two decades, Denton Corker Marshall‘s Australian Pavilion will welcome its first visitors on May 9, as part of the 56th Venice Biennale. 

Envisioned by the architects as a “simple yet confident, memorable garden pavilion… timeless but with vitality, tactility and materiality that [invites] curiosity and engagement”, the project is located in the historic Giardini, and is Venice’s only waterfront pavilion. Replacing Philip Cox‘s 1988 temporary structure, the pavilion features a white interior exhibition space allowing art to be the main focal point, and in which the work of Australian photographic artist Fiona Hall will be displayed upon the pavilion’s opening in May. View previous coverage of the pavilion here.

At a time when everyone is constantly interacting with the digital social universe, it’s becoming increasingly easier to gather informal data on how well received, recommended, liked (or disliked) an event or exhibition is. Compiled as a series of diagrams for DomusMaria Novozhilova examines the ‘social ranking’ of the 2014 Venice Biennale by dissecting the three core exhibitions (Fundamentals, Monditalia and Absorbing Modernity) and revealing the apparent ‘winners and losers’ as far as social engagement is concerned. Noting that “it is only by starting from the end and working backwards, like a salmon swimming against the current, that we can see more exhaustively how things went,”, Novozhilova’s visualisations reveal a number of fascinating results. See all the diagrams here.

Venice Biennale Hosts Third Annual “Archives and Exhibitions” Livestream Conference

With just over two weeks left in the 14th Venice Biennale of Architecture, Paolo Baratta, President of La Biennale, is hosting a one day conference on the intersection between archives, exhibitions and digital integration.

Panelists include the Mirko Zardini, Director and Chief Curator from the Canadian Centre for Architecture, archive superintendents from three Italian provinces, professors from three Italian universities, and Debora Rossi, the chief archivist for the Venice Biennale.

The event will be live streamed on the Biennale website Today (November 7th) from 10:00am to 6:00pm Central European Time.
