Australia’s 2018 Venice Biennale exhibition, ‘Repair’, opens.
Giardini Della Biennale, Venice
CONGRATULATIONS to the curatorial and exhibition team for the Australian pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2018; RMIT Architecture Associate Professor Mauro Baracco, RMIT Architecture PhD Alumna Louise Wright, and Linda Tegg.
After a national search, Baracco+Wright Architects with artist Linda Tegg were selected to curate the Australian Pavilion in the Giardini at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2018.
The Australian Pavilion was officially opened by Australian Ambassador Dr Greg French and Janet Holmes à Court AC in front of many Australian architects and representatives of AIA leadership including AIA National President Clare Cousins (RMIT Architecture Alumna), AIA Victorian Chapter President Amy Muir (RMIT Architecture Lecturer & Alumna) and Vanessa Bird (Outgoing AIA Victorian Chapter President and RMIT Architecture Alumna) to name a few.
The curators states that; “Repair as an approach to architectural thinking – that is, how can architecture play a role in repairing the places it is part of […] and it aims to expand the point of view from the object of architecture, to the way it operates in its context; and to advocate a role for architecture among the many players it takes to repair something.”
