Open call: curate the British Pavilion 2020
The British Council has launched an open call for proposals to curate the British Pavilion at the 17th Venice International Architecture Biennale, which will run between May and November 2020.
The British Council invites teams to submit a concept proposal for an exhibition that will explore contemporary architectural practice with bold ideas that inspire, challenge and address today’s most relevant issues. It also sets out that the proposals should make full use of the unique opportunity offered by the British Pavilion and offer a new way to express and communicate fresh perspectives to a wide and diverse international audience.
For the first time, the open call for the British Pavilion was launched before the Biennale’s announcement of their lead curator and the central theme for 2020. This gives the successful team more preparation time for the exhibition. They may then adapt or develop the proposition to respond to the central theme when it is announced, although this is not mandatory.
Application deadline: February 18, 2019
