Giardini, Giardini, Castello, 30122, Venice, Italy

Title: American Framing
Commissioner: Paul Preissner, The University of Illinois at Chicago
Curators: Paul Andersen, Paul Preissner
Exhibitors: Ania Jaworska, Carrie Norman, Thomas Kelley, Linda Robbennolt, Daniel Shea, Chris Strong

The exhibition presents the architecture of wood framing, the most common construction system in the U.S. and one of the country’s most important contributions to building practice. Featuring a monumental installation that activates the entrance to the neoclassical U.S. Pavilion and newly commissioned photographs, models, and site-responsive furniture, the exhibition brings attention to an architectural element that has been mostly overlooked by historical and contemporary discourse.
