Plans for the 30th Bienal de São Paulo, which is set to run Sept. 7 through Dec., 2012, are roaring ahead. The curatorial team just released its artist roster, which includes 110 participants. Making the list are deceased greats, like American Happenings maestro Allan Kaprow, Dutch conceptual artist Bas Jan Ader and the German portrait photographer August Sander, as well as living figures, like German painter Jutta Koether (who is included in the current Whitney Biennial), Canadian photographer Guy Maddin and Chinese artist Xu Bing.

The exhibition is titled “The Imminence of Poetics.” Luis Pérez-Oramas, curator of Latin American art at the Museum of Modern Art, is serving as chief curator, with André Severo and Tobi Maier as associated curators and Isabella Villanueva as the project’s curatorial assistant.
