The Lyon Contemporary Art Biennale
Thanks to the exceptional Fagor Factory site being made available – a complex of more than 29,000 sqm in central Lyon – the 15th edition is unprecedented in scale. This augmented realm of possibilities swayed the Palais de Tokyo and its curatorial team, who were invited to curate the international exhibition. To meet the challenge, Adélaïde Blanc, Daria de Beauvais, Yoann Gourmel, Matthieu Lelièvre, Vittoria Matarrese, Claire Moulène and Hugo Vitrani scoured the world, with the idea of favouring new projects. These curators were called upon for their ability to implement an energy, multiple resources, an open-minded look at current output, and a special sensitivity to the contemporary issues influencing our society.
