New York – June 4, 2018 – DXA studio, a New York based architecture and design firm, has announced that they will be part of the Time Space Existence Exhibition being held as a part of the 2018 Venice Biennale. The exhibition opens May 26th and will be shown through November 25th.
Time Space Existence, which is in its fourth year of exhibition at the Biennale, shows a broad selection of work from architects, photographers, sculptors, and universities from across the globe. Participants work will focus on the fundamental, existential questions associated with the concepts of time and space, and how architecture interacts with these philosophical ideas. Each location inhabited by the exhibition embodies a different atmosphere, and some will host solo presentations while others will show group work.
The participating architects and artists come from a diverse mix of cultural backgrounds and range from established professionals to those just starting out. In addition to DXA studio, participating architects include Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Fumihiko Maki, Jean-Paul Viguier, Ideal Spaces, Curtis Fentress, Mark Harris, and more. An exciting project by Daniel Liebeskind will also be presented.
“Having attended my first Venice Biennale in the late 90’s it has remained an aspiration to participate in such a fantastic forum,” said Jordan Rogove co-founder and Partner at DXA studio, “it’s a dream come true.” “Our project was a natural fit for the Time Space Existence exhibit and we are honored to have a chance to show our work alongside so many respected artists,” said Wayne Norbeck, Co-founder and Partner.
DXA will be exhibiting a scale facade mock-up and projected animation of an early design iteration of 827-831 Broadway, a renovation to Willem de Kooning’s New York City studio. The project is inspired by his work, and that of the abstract expressionists that helped thrust New York on the world stage as an art capital. It speaks to the power of Architecture to celebrate moments of cultural and architectural significance, and foster a dialog between generations of design. A musical score was composed by Gregory Rogove that accompanies the animation realized by Ben Olschner.
DXA’s participation in this exhibition is being sponsored by Greenberg Traurig, LLP, Silman, Rinaldi Construction, Mary B Dierickx, Jablonski Building Conservation, Inc., Quality Capital USA and eInteractive. DXA studio also received a letter of support for their presence at the Biennale from Rene Rietemeyer, President of the European Cultural Centre.
