Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.

Please note that some locations have set opening hours, so be sure to check them before your visit.

  • Did you hear the announcement on Wednesday? The architect for MPavilion 2021 is MAP studio (Venice)! And we couldn’t be more excited.  A work more than two years in the making, MAP studio’s upcoming MPavilion was originally slated for construction in 2020, with progress being postponed as the world responded to the COVID-19 crisis. But now, after wrapping our logistically flexible 2020 season, MPavilion can recommence work with MAP studio to bring its pavilion to fruition.  MAP studio is led by Francesco Magnani and Traudy Pelzel, two architects who have led their team in a number of significant projects, including the refurbishment of greenhouses in Querini Park, Vincenza, the outfitting of the National Museum of Musical Instruments, Rome, and the restoration of Carlo Scarpa’s Balboni House, Venice. MAP studio's award-winning works include the renovation of the Porta Nuova Tower in the Venice Arsenale, its restoration of a Ferrara Farmhouse, and its development of the Tramway Terminal in Piazzale Roma, Venice. The practice has also exhibited work at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, and was celebrated for its Asplund Pavilion at Vatican Chapels—the first pavilion of the Holy See at the 16th Venice Biennale of Architecture.  Design and build details of MAP studio's MPavilion will be revealed in July 2021, but for now, you can read more about MAP studio on our website.

  • That's a wrap!  MPavilion 2020/21 is now finished—and what a season it has been. From beaming to you in your homes online during lockdown, to reanimating the pavilions of past seasons when we could come back together, to turning the seventh floor of Parkade car park into a rollerdisco, a cinema, a performance space and so much more, this season's program has proven that beyond being any one physical space, MPavilion is a living, breathing cultural laboratory. One that lives because all of you bring it to life with your presence and your ideas.  Of course, absolutely none of it would have been possible without the imagination and support of every collaborator who helped to make each event happen. So to all who took part, Team MPavilion thank you! Being able to make this season a reality in the midst of a pandemic is a testament to your vision and determination. 
But just because we're saying goodbye for now—until our next season begins in November 2021—doesn't mean you have to go MPavilion-less before then! Our online MPavilion Library is a treasure trove of recorded events that will brighten your mind, feed your spirit and stoke your idea-fires until we return.  So for now, take care of yourselves and each other, and dive into a podcast (or two hundred) on the MPavilion Library 📚 📺 🎧  From all of us at MPavilion ✨  Link in bio for MPavilion Library 🔗
