16th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia

Pavilion of Antigua and Barbuda at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center from December 17, 2018 - January 28, 2019


December 14, 2018 – We are pleased to announce that the exhibition of Antigua and Barbuda’s National Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale will be coming to New York City this winter. After being exhibited at the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale from May to November 2018, the Environmental Justice as a Civil Right exhibition will be adapted to the Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries in New York City from December 17, 2018 to January 28, 2019. We are excited to feature a National Pavilion from the Venice Architecture Biennale for the very first time at The New School in New York City.

Antigua and Barbuda’s inaugural National Pavilion explores environmental justice as a civil right. As an investigation into the acute crisis of climate change facing this island nation, cutting edge sustainability and unique partnerships are explored in rebuilding Barbuda, expanding the Botanical Gardens, and the Government House Restoration Initiative, included in the World Monuments Watch 2018.

This exhibition is curated by Barbara Paca, Cultural Envoy to Antigua and Barbuda, and Visiting Scholar at the Tishman Environmental Design Center; in association with Professor Nina Khrushcheva of the Julien J. Studley Graduate Programs in International Affairs. This represents a collaboration with The New School’s Tishman Environmental Design Center and Parsons School of Design.

*Please be advised that the gallery will be closed from December 22, 2018 - January 1, 2019; the window display exhibition will be available from street view.
