Curate the British Pavilion 2020



We have launched the open call for the British Pavilion 2020. Apply now to curate our exhibition at the next Venice Architecture Biennale.

Spark debate, offer new perspectives on the issues that matter, create a fresh experience of architecture and show your work to the world. Gather your team, create your vision for the British Pavilion 2020 and submit your proposal by 18 February 2019.

The open call is an opportunity for a cross-disciplinary team, headed by a curator, to propose an exhibition that tells a story of contemporary British architecture to an international audience.

Members of the team do not need to be UK-born, but the nominated lead applicant should currently be a resident or working in the UK and have a strong connection to contemporary British architecture.
