In 2012, Beyond Entropy Africa curated the Angola Pavilion at the 13th Architecture Biennale in Venice [3] with the title of their partnership ‘Beyond Entropy’.[4] In 2013, Beyond Entropy Africa curated the Angola Pavilion at the 55th Art Biennale in Venice entitled ‘Luanda, Encyclopedic City’ featuring the work of photographer Edson Chagas.[5][6]
