One of Australia’s greatest cultural symbols – The Pool – will form the foundation of the Australian Exhibition at the La Biennale di Venezia 2016. ING was appointed by the Australian Institute of Architects to manage the international PR campaign for the exhibition, curated by Aileen Sage Architects (Isabelle Toland and Amelia Holliday) with Michelle Tabet. The exhibition uses the pool as a lens through which to explore Australian cultural identity and will engage visitors through an immersive experience that will transport them poolside and evoke the pools of Australia in all their forms, be they natural or manmade, inland or coastal, temporary or permanent.
The Australian Institute of Architects is the peak body for the architectural profession, representing 12,000 members across Australia and overseas. The Institute actively works to improve the quality of our built environment by promoting quality, responsible and sustainable design. ING has previously worked with the AIA to manage international PR campaign for the Australian Pavilion exhibitions at the 2010 and 2012 Venice Architecture Biennales.
