About Us

The Hong Kong Collateral Event of the 17th Venice Biennale International Architecture Exhibition is co-organised by The Hong Kong Institute of Architects Biennale Foundation and Hong Kong Arts Development Council, with The Hong Kong Institute of Architects as the Partner and Create Hong Kong of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region as the Lead Sponsor.

Well recognised as one of the most prestigious, spectacular and influential cultural meetings in the world, the 17th Venice Biennale International Architecture Exhibition (La Biennale di Venezia) will be held from May 22 to November 21, 2021 in Venice, Italy.

‘Redistribution: Land, People, and Environment’ is the theme for the Hong Kong Collateral Event of this year’s Biennale. Led by Chief Curator Donald Choi, the curatorial team includes Paul Mui, Benny Lee, Agnes Hung, Ka-Sing Yu and Dr. Lee Ho Yin. The curatorial process encourages exhibitors to work collaboratively as a team with members from corporations, young architects, entrepreneurial designers, artists as well as researchers, academics, and those working for NGOs. Exhibitors have been tasked with proposing innovative ideas centred on the redistribution of three critical resources to enhance Hong Kong’s overall liveability.

The City Gallery Prexhibition will be held during the first quarter of 2021, and is open to all visitors in the Territory.
