About the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennale

Since 1895, British artists and architects have amazed, inspired and challenged visitors with their works and exhibitions at the Venice Biennale. Formed of six galleries, the British Pavilion is a 19th century neo-classical listed building set in the leafy grounds of the Giardini.

The Pavilion has had a fascinating history, and in 1937 the British Council took over the building and became responsible for showcasing the best of the UK’s contemporary artists, architects, designers and curators.
