The Venice Biennale’s 17th International Architecture Exhibition will be open to the public from May 22 to Nov. 21, organizers said on Monday.
The exhibition is called “How will we live together?” and it will be at the Giardini, the Arsenale, and Forte Marghera areas in line with COVID-19 prevention measures and rules, they said.
It will be curated by Hashim Sarkis, a Lebanese educator, and architect who since 2015 has been professor and dean of the School of Architecture and Planning at MIT.
Sarkis was named curator of the 2020 Venice Biennale of Architecture in 2018, but this edition was canceled due to the pandemic.
The exhibition will include 110 participants from 46 countries, with increased representation from Africa, Latin America, and Asia.
Also will includes pavilions from Egypt, Kuwait, Lebanon, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and the UAE.
