PARTICIPIANT EXHIBITION VENICE



Mikael Olsson participate in the exhibition in 'Mutadis Mutandis – 24 pavilions'.

As an impromptu response to the cancellation of the Venice architecture biennial and the subsequent postponement of the upcoming art biennial, 'Mutadis Mutandis' showcases 24 proposals for future/imaginary pavilions free of any geopolitical, economic, physical, durational, or cosmic limitations.

Studio Giardini is – very suitably – situated in close proximity to the Giardini della Biennale in a residential neighborhood directly behind the oldest foreign pavilion inaugurated in 1907.

Curated by Love Enqvist and Lotte Møller
