State Department selects Cleveland’s Spaces gallery to organize U.S. Pavilion at 2023 Architecture Biennale in Venice, Italy

Few institutional honors in the art world are bigger than being chosen by the U.S. State Department to organize an exhibition at the U.S. Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in Venice, Italy.

Spaces, a small, nonprofit art gallery on Cleveland’s West Side, has just joined that exclusive club.

Sunday, the gallery announced it has been selected to organize the U.S. exhibition at the 2023 Architecture Biennale in collaboration with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

The Architecture Biennale has alternated every other year since 1980 with the Art Biennale, established in Venice in 1895. The international exhibits, featuring displays from as many as 75 countries, are considered among the most visible, important, and highly regarded in the world.

Spaces will act as the “commissioner’’ of the U.S. exhibit at the Architecture Biennale, meaning in this case that it will commission new works by five American artists and designers for display in Venice from May 20 to Nov. 26.
