The Beijing Contemporary Art Foundation has commissioned OMA to design the Chinese Pavilion at the 56th Venice Art Biennale, just a year after Rem Koolhaas served as director of the 14th Venice Architecture Biennale. The exhibition, "Other Future" will feature the work of composer Tan Dun, architect Liu Jiakun, artist Lu Yang, filmmaker Wu Wenguang / Caochangdi Work Station and choreographer Wen Hui / Living Dance Studio in an "immersive environment where artworks are juxtaposed in a field of projections and stages connecting the interior and exterior works."
The exhibition was designed by OMA Asia in collaboration with curatorial advisor Kayoko Ota. The design team is led by Dongmei Yao, Wanyu He, Long Yu, and Michael Kokora. The 56th International Art Exhibition runs May 9 to November 22, 2015.
