Since 1938 the British Council has managed the British Pavilion in Venice, commissioning British artists at the longest-running, most prestigious international art biennial in the world.

On this site you can explore the rich history of the British Pavilion from 1895 to the present, illustrated by a variety of current and newly comissioned media. You will also find further details of the Venice Architecture Biennale and our ongoing collaborations with exhibitions from other UK nations.
