Portrait of a Pavilion

Director: Katerine Giguère
Produced by André Picard
Produced by the National Film Board in collaboration with the National Gallery of Canada and the National Gallery of Canada Foundation

The Canada Pavilion in Venice has hosted many artists and works since its inauguration in 1958. Restored for its 60th anniversary and the 16th International Exhibition of Architecture in Venice in 2018, the pavilion is itself a work of art. A documentary portrait of the pavilion presenting this anti-monumental building, inhabited by trees and natural light, which invites our greatest contemporary artists to conceive art beyond its walls. An original, intimate perspective and contemplative exploration and celebration of its architecture and history.
