A collaborative platform for Ocean Imagination and Ocean Action


We are excited to announce that on Monday May 3 Ocean Space reopens its doors to the public with two exhibitions:

"The Soul Expanding Ocean # 1: Taloi Havini", curated by Chus Martínez

"Territorial Agency: Oceans in Transformation", curated by Daniela Zyman

In order to welcome as many visitors as possible in compliance with current COVID-19 restrictions, during the first week of Ocean Space’s reopening, the exhibitions will be accessible from Monday to Sunday (May 3 - 9), from 11am to 6pm, with free admission. On Saturdays, Sundays, and on public holidays online booking at least a day before the visit is mandatory.

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.


“Lagoon Micro-ecologies”, is the title of the second series of itinerant conversations “Venice as a Model for the Future?” curated by Barbara Casavecchia and Pietro Consolandi.

This new chapter, part of TBA21–Academy's educational program "The Current III: The Mediterraneans: “Thus waves come in pairs” (After Etel Adnan), led by Barbara Casavecchia, will take us to the islands and margins of the Venice lagoon.

First traveling conversation: May, Friday 7. More information here
