Another biennale is officially hitting the crowded art calendar. The Vienna Biennale has announced that its first edition, which runs from June 11 to October 4 this year, will be titled “Ideas for Change,” and feature the work of more than 110 artists, including Monir Farmanfarmaian, Amalia Pica, and Artur Zmijewski. (The full list follows below.)

The show’s curators are Pedro Gadanho (curator of contemporary architecture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York), Harald Gruendl (co-partner of EOOS; head of IDRV–Institute of Design Research Vienna), Maria Lind (director of the Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm), and Peter Weibel (executive director of the ZKM | Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe). Lots of chefs in this kitchen!

And here are some of the biennial’s themes, via its news release: “How do we want to live and work in the future? How do we want to develop our cities? With what ideas and impulses can fine art and the applied disciplines of design and architecture contribute to make a better society?”
