Lyon 14th Biennale Festival of Contemporary Art
From September 20th 2017 to January 7th 2018, Lyon 14th Biennale Festival of Contemporary Art will take you on a journey to discover "Floating Worlds", an exhibition that brings together the work of over 60 artists from 27 countries!
To relate Floating worlds to what is specifically connected with Lyon, Emma Lavigne, the guest curator, explains that she “wanted to attach the Biennale, to moor it, in the heart of this city, whose identity has been partly shaped by the omnipresence of water – this city "born of the waters", crossed by the Rhône and Saône –, by reactivating the powers of the imagination that are carried along by the presence, at once familiar and mysterious, of those two rivers. To leave open the connections between the city, with its history of silk weaving, and certain artworks which, like those of Hans Haacke or Damián Ortega, explore fabric, as a levitating material”.
