As Melbourne Art Fair returns in 2020 to take up residence at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, the fair is proud to welcome Denton Corker Marshall as Official Fair Architect.

The visionaries behind Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre’s state-of-the-art design, founders John Denton and Barrie Marshall established their international architecture practice in Melbourne in 1972. The pair are responsible for some of Melbourne’s most iconic landmarks, including Melbourne Museum, Melbourne Gateway and Bolte Bridge.

While Melbourne remains the design base, the firm has opened practices in London, Manchester and Jakarta, with over 510 projects in 37 countries. Firmly establishing its global presence, Denton Corker Marshall was granted the rare privilege of adding a new pavilion to the Giardini in Venice, one of the main venues of the art and architecture biennales, to replace the temporary structure that Australia has been using since 1988.

Returning to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, John Denton and Barrie Marshall have worked with the Melbourne Art Foundation to create an industry defining exhibition design for Melbourne Art Fair 2020. Modernist, minimalist and sculptural in its approach, the design is a true representation of the Denton Corker Marshall aesthetic and the city of Melbourne.
