About AIRBNB Pavilion
The AIRBNB Pavilion is an art collective based in London whose work focuses on the relationship between interiors, domesticity, internet and the city. It was founded by Fabrizio Ballabio, Alessandro Bava, Luis Ortega Govela and Octave Perrault for an exhibition during the opening days of the 14th Architecture Biennale in Venice.
About IDEAS CITY
IDEAS CITY explores the future of cities with culture as a driving force. Founded by the New Museum in 2011, it is a major collaborative initiative between hundreds of arts, education, and civic organizations. A biennial IDEAS CITY Festival takes place every other May in New York City. The theme of this year’s IDEAS CITY Festival is The Invisible City, an homage to Italo Calvino’s literary masterpiece of 1972. This theme is rooted in civic action, with each of the Festival’s platforms serving as an invitation to explore questions of transparency and surveillance, citizenship and representation, expression and suppression, participation and dissent, and the enduring quest for visibility in the city.
This AIRBNB Pavilion event was developed by Rhizome Artistic Director Michael Connor on the occasion of and with the support of IDEAS CITY, organized by IDEAS CITY Director Joseph Grima.
Rhizome’s public programs are made possible, in part, through the support of the Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts, the Carolyn K. Tribe Foundation, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the New York State Council on the Arts.
