LAD to curate Dominican Pavilion for 2014 Venice Biennale
Santo Domingo.– Laboratorio de Arquitectura Dominicana (LAD) has been selected to curate the Dominican Republic’s first pavilion for the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale.
According to archdaily.com, the exhibition will explore modern attitudes and local narratives around the 1955 Fair of Peace and Fraternity of the Free World. The site was developed by Dominican dictator Rafael Trujillo and inspired by Mussolini’s 1942 world fair.
LAD will work with exhibition commissioner Sachi Hoshikawa and fellow curators Juan Rufino Castillo, Rubén Hernández Fontana, Juan Mubarak and Emil Rodríguez Garabo.
The 14th International Architecture Exhibition, directed by Rem Koolhaas, will be held from June 7 to November 23, 2014.
