Massimilano Gioni is the Associate Director of the New Museum, New York, and the Artistic Director of the Nicola Trussardi Foundation, Milan. In 2013, he served as the Artistic Director of the 55th edition of the Venice Biennale, The Encyclopedic Palace. He has curated numerous international exhibitions, including: 10.000 Lives, the 8th Gwangju Biennale (2010); Of Mice and Men, the 4th Berlin Biennale (2006); and Manifesta 5, San Sebastian (2004).

At the New Museum, Gioni has curated large thematic shows including NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star (2013) and Ghosts in the Machine (2012).

With the Nicola Trussardi Foundation, Gioni runs a nomadic museum that stages special projects in palazzos, public spaces and forgotten monuments. He founded "The Wrong Gallery" with Maurizio Cattelan and Ali Subotnick.

Gioni will discuss his practice, focusing on The Encyclopedic Palace, the most recent Venice Biennale.
