Ocean Space

Located in the Church of San Lorenzo in Venice, Ocean Space opened in March of 2019 as a new planetary centre for catalysing ocean literacy, research and advocacy through the arts. Established and led by TBA21–Academy and building on its expansive work over the past ten years, this new embassy for the oceans fosters engagement and collective action on the most pressing issues facing the oceans today.

In 2019, Ocean Space exhibited Joan Jonas’s "Moving Off the Land II" and has been closed for refurbishment since September of the same year. On August 27, 2020 Ocean Space opened the second season with the new exhibition "Territorial Agency: Oceans in Transformation".
