At 4pm on Tuesday 5 May (Venice time), the new Denton Corker Marshall designed Australian Pavilion in Venice’s historic Biennale precinct was officially opened by Senator the Hon George Brandis QC, Attorney-General and Minister for the Arts, and welcomed by Paolo Baratta, President of the Venice Biennale.

Built with a $1 million contribution from the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, and a staggering $6.5m in donations from over 80 private Australian benefactors, the Minister said the pavilion project was a highly successful yet ambitious example of what public and private partnerships can achieve.
