18th INTERNATIONAL ARCHITECTURE EXHIBITION: 20th of May to the 26th of November 2023 (vernissage 18th and 19th of May)
The 18th International Architecture Exhibition will take place at Venice’s Giardini and Arsenale from May 20th to November 26th 2023. These gardens in the east of Venice have been the traditional venue for the International Art Exhibition since 1895. They were laid out during the Napoleonic era, on land that had once been occupied by a district that included four churches and three convents. The area hosts the Central Pavilion and a further 29 national pavilions, built at various periods by the participating countries themselves.
Several pavilions in the Gardens were designed and built by famous architects.
The title of the 18th International Architecture Exhibition is The Laboratory of the Future.
“New technologies continuously appear and disappear – stated Lesley Lokko curator of the exhibition – giving us unfiltered glimpses of life in parts of the globe we will likely never visit, much less understand. But to see both near and far simultaneously is also, as Du Bois and Fanon famously put it, a form of ‘double consciousness’, the internal conflict of all subordinated or colonised groups, which describes the majority of the world, not only ‘there’, in the so-called Developing-, Third-, and Arab Worlds, but ‘here’ too, in the metropoles and landscapes of the global North. In Europe we speak of minorities and diversity, but the truth is that the West’s minorities are the global majority’diversity is our norm. There is one place on this planet where all these questions of equity, race, hope and fear converge and coalesce. Africa. At an anthropological level, we are all African. And what happens in Africa happens to us all”.
