Diaspora Pavilion was a major exhibition curated by David Bailey and Jessica Taylor, which was conceived as a challenge to the prevalence of national pavilions within the structure of the Venice Biennale. It took its form from the coming-together of nineteen artists whose practices in many ways expand, complicate and even destabilise diaspora as a term, whilst highlighting the continued relevance that diaspora as a lived reality holds today.
