This catalogue is published in conjunction with the 9th Shanghai Biennale from October 2012 to March 2013. The Inter-City Pavilion Project is a collateral event that extends the reach of the Biennale into the historical parts of Shanghai. The idea behind the project is not to represent national identities but to relate Shanghai to 30 cities around the world. They include: Amsterdam, Antwerp, Auckland, Bandung, Barcelona, Berlin, Bogotá, Brooklyn, Daejeon, Dakar, Detroit, Diankou, Dusseldorf, Istanbul, Lille Métropole, Lima, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Moscow, Mumbai, Palermo, Pittsburgh, Rhônes-Alpes/Lyon, San Francisco, São Paulo, Sendai, Tehran, Ulan Bator, and Vancouver. Davide Quadrio, Manager of the Inter-City Pavilion Project, explains that it 'focuses on the interesting connections and energy exchanges between people and cultures that, in today's globalized world, are more likely to be identified within local communities rather than within national contexts'.

Note: Only Asian artists are listed in the field 'Artists'. Curators of individual city pavilions are not listed in the field 'Curators'.
