Argentina has unveiled the theme of its national pavilion for the 2016 Venice Biennale: “experimentAR, poéticas desde la frontera” (to experience, poetry from the border). The pavilion will be curated by Atilio Pentimalli with Alejandro Vaca Bononato as the head of artistic direction.

In line with the objectives put forth by the director of the 2016 Biennale, Alejandro Aravena, the Argentine pavilion aims to highlight works that “have been able to win the daily battle against the codes, the lack of economic resources, the fluctuating conditions of the country, the times and the demands of the market through intelligence, intuition, work and Argentine talent to achieve a unique architecture that emerges from the depths of our thinking and our land to improve the lives of people and open new horizons.”

The exhibition will display self-supporting structures made up of interlaced wooden slates, creating a labyrinth that contains “our entire universe of architectonic explorations.” 

Curator: Atilio Pentimalli
Artistic Direction: Alejandro Vaca Bononato
