9 May 2015
Swiss artist Thomas Hirschhorn has made an immersive installation work called ‘Roof Off' for the 56th International Art Exhibition as part of the Venice Biennale titled 'All the World's Futures'. Curated by Okwui Enwezor, the exhibition takes place at the Giardini, the Arsenale and in various locations across the city of Venice. Hirschhorn's work, installed in the Central Pavilion, creates the illusion that the roof of the building has collapsed. The historic Padiglione Italia at the Giardini was renamed Central Pavilion in 2009.

Huma Bhabha and Melvin Edwards are also featured at the 56th International Art Exhibition.

The Venice Biennale runs from 9 May until 22 November 2015.
