A collaborative platform for Ocean Imagination and Ocean Action


Ocean Space will reopen to the public with two exhibitions.

The first solo exhibition in Europe by the artist Taloi Havini "The Soul Expanding Ocean #1: Taloi Havini" curated by Chus Martínez, on view until October 17, 2021.

The second chapter of "Territorial Agency: Oceans in Transformation", curated by Daniela Zyman, on view until August 29, 2021.

Please note the exact opening day of the exhibitions is subject to change according to the latest COVID-19 restrictions in Italy. Further updates will be shared here and on social media channels.

From March, Monday 22, the light installation When above… by Territorial Agency is once again visible upon the facade of Ocean Space.

The LED strip positioned on the facade marks the future sea level as a result of global warming, due to rise by 6 meters over the next century, drawing attention to the vulnerability of the oceans and human communities that depend on its well-being.

This installation, part of the exhibition Territorial Agency: Oceans in Transformation, is simultaneously a declaration of solidarity with both Venice and the rest of the world in these difficult times, and a reminder of the urgent need
for collective action to safeguard and defend the oceans.
