21 Collateral Events will enrich the 14th International Architecture Exhibition, which will take place from June 7th 2014 for 6 months in Venice.

The Venice Biennale has released a list of 21 Collateral Events that will involve many prestigious sites around the city, alongside the official exhibitions at the Giardini and the Arsenale. Selected by Rem Koolhass and supported by non-profit national and international institutions, those events would be a great opportunity to explore a wide range of extra contributions from countries all over the world (especially China, with 5 projects) as well as local contributions.

Many events could be mentioned. For example, Moscow participates with the first retrospective in Italy of Mikhail Roginsky (Mikhail Roginsky. Through the Red Door), the father of Russian Pop Art, that will be held at Ca’ Foscari. The main purpose of this project is draw attention to the fundamental component of the art of painting that is based on advantage of its inherent notions: color, form and construction.

At Palazzo Trevisan degli Ulivi (Campo Sant’Agnese), Switzerland presents for the third year the Salon Suisse, an ambitious programme of talks and events focusing on questions around urban development in Switzerland and the increasing pressure of urbanization worldwide.

An opportunity to appreciate architecture conceived by different cultural backgrounds is Time Space Existence at Palazzo Bembo and Palazzo Mora. The exhibition presents architects from 6 continents, brought together in an extraordinary combination.

In other words, Venice Biennale is announced to be once again a real urban phenomenon, that would engage every corner of the city.
