OMA Creates 360-Degree Cinema at the Venice Biennale

OMA has recently transformed the F stage of the Corderie at the Venice Biennale to become a four screen, 360-degree cinema hall. Complementing the exhibitions at the Biennale, full movies will be screened in the space on weekends from now until November.

For the occasion of the opening of the Venice Film Festival, the movie stage will be open every day. Twenty-two of the eighty-two films of the Monditalia exhibition will be screened in their entirety on four screens, one for each side of the stage.

"The Exhibition section entitled Monditalia at the Corderie dell’Arsenale, in fact involves all the Biennale sections: Dance, Music, Theatre and Cinema," states Biennale President Paolo Baratta. The arts-oriented exhibition will be an integral part of the Architecture exhibition, meaning that, according to Baratta, "Never before has the entire Biennale been in the Biennale like this year."
