The Canada Council for the Arts invites proposals for the Canadian representation at the 2018 Venice Biennale in Architecture, the foremost international platform to engage critical conversations on contemporary architecture. Doubling its previous investment and enhancing international exposure, the Canada Council will make a contribution of $500,000 towards the presenter’s exhibition.

The presenter will be the curator, producer and project manager of the exhibition. The proposed presentation should communicate excellence, innovation, and currency in contemporary Canadian architecture including buildings, landscapes and places, or in works of and (or) critical research on architecture, landscape architecture or the urban environment.

Architects, artists, designers, planners, builders, politicians, students and cultural leaders from around the world are among the more than 300,000 visitors expected to attend the 2018 Biennale with the intention of discovering the cutting edge of architecture and architectural discourse.
