A genuine interest for the biennial as exhibition format, for art as knowledge production, as well as for the city of Göteborg – with its specific history and context – are all important factors in appointing Sarat Maharaj as chief curator of Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art 2011.

Sarat Maharaj works in a curatorial team consisting of Dorothee Albrecht, Stina Edblom and Gertrud Sandqvist. The overall theme Pandemonium: Art in a Time of ‘Creativity Fever&8217; constitutes the starting-point for the curatorial process taking off in December 2010. During the spring of 2011, Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art will arrange open seminars and workshops leading up to the opening on September 10, 2011.

While Röda Sten is the main exhibition venue, the 2011 biennial will also take place at Göteborgs Konsthall and Göteborgs Konstmuseum. The planning of other exhibition venues and the upcoming program will continue in 2011.
