Thirst and Archeworks at the Venice Biennale, Aug 29


We just completed a looping video, Gather Give Grow, that highlights the program of Archeworks’ Mobile Food Collective (MFC) in an abstract and joyful way. Our video of the MFC premieres today in the U.S. Pavilion at the 12th International Architecture Exhibition of the 2010 Venice Biennale!

The Thirst Short, directed by Rick Valicenti and designed by Rick, John Pobojewski, and Bud Rodecker, will be in the U.S. Pavilion from August 29 through November 21, 2010 as one of only seven American projects in “Workshopping: An American Model of Architectural Practice” curated by the High Museum of Art, 306090, and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.

Archeworks—a post-graduate design school in Chicago dedicated to advancing the public mission of design—is representing the U.S. in the 12th International Architecture Exhibition, which showcases American designers as civic catalysts. Archeworks is redefining the role of the architectural discipline, initiating collaborative projects that stake out new territory addressing urban design and social issues.

Outside the exhibit hall, Archeworks will do what we do best – workshopping. Highlighting the themes of the Mobile Food Collective, we will engage local residents in exploring our respective food cultures and heritage. Beginning on August 26 in Venice, our small team of design students will lead a three-day design workshop in partnership with architecture students from the University of Camerino in Ascoli Piceno. Archeworks initiated this unofficial programming to engage more directly with young Italian designers who want to respond to social issues through design.
