The Happenstance 31 Aug 2018 – 30 Sep
Gallery One

A dynamic exhibition showcasing The Happenstance, Scotland’s critically acclaimed contribution to the prestigious 16th International Architecture Exhibition, Venice 2018, led by artists / curators WAVEparticle.

To engage with the Biennale theme of Freespace, and celebrate Scotland’s Year of Young People (YOYP), The Happenstance began in Scotland, bringing together Artists and Architects who are experts in play, to work with young people nationwide, to discover what Freespace means to them.

In Venice, The Happenstance has established a remarkable Freespace in the garden at the heart of Palazzo Zenobio – inviting all-comers to build new possibilities together for the freedoms we urgently need to claim – focusing on the event nature of live situations and exploring how we can intervene in our own lives and the circumstances that shape us.

The Happenstance encourages everyone into a vital relationship with the built environment, using play as an active agent within the process of rethinking and reclaiming Freespace.

This exhibition, in Gallery 1 at The Lighthouse, features images, films and testimonies that focus on inspiring examples of individuals, organisations and situations that underscore Freespace in both Scotland and Venice.

Supported and promoted by the Scotland + Venice partnership: Scottish Government, Architecture and Design Scotland, Creative Scotland, British Council and Year of Young People

With additional support from Urban Union; the Italian Institute of Culture, Edinburgh; Glasgow Community Planning Partnership Area Partnerships and Will Rudd Davidson, (Glasgow).
