MPavilion regional program
Geelong Gallery and Shepparton Art Museum (SAM) have joined together with MPavilion to deliver a new special regional program of workshops and public events designed to connect community groups, cultural institutions and government bodies, and to foster meaningful conversations around design.
MPavilion 2017 is designed by renowned international architects Rem Koolhaas and David Gianotten of OMA. Inspired by Koolhaas’s current preoccupation with the countryside and urban design, for the first time, this year MPavilion is extending its reach from the heart of Melbourne to work with key partners in regional Victoria. Held throughout October 2017 and February 2018, the series of workshops and events are curated and facilitated by MPavilion in collaboration with Geelong Gallery; Shepparton Art Museum; Jack Self (director, REAL Foundation, UK; co-curator, British Pavilion, Venice Biennale 2016); artist Keg de Souza (NSW); and Sarah Lynn Rees (MPavilion Regional Program Manager; Indigenous Architecture and Design Victoria).
