Join us for a presentation by Aileen Sage (Isabelle Aileen Toland and Amelia Sage Holliday) and Michelle Tabet, creative directors of The Pool, the Australian Exhibition at the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale.
Recognisably Australian, The Pool is joyful, celebratory and accessible. It is also a setting for the sharing of stories, tales of personal and collective struggle, of community building and transformation and refusal of the status quo. Creating a pool as the focal point in the space, the exhibition will at first seduce the senses, but it will also capture the imagination and intellect of those who choose to dive deeper.
