Lyon Biennial, Contemporary Art Biennial
A major event for international art.
The Lyon Contemporary Art Biennial (held on odd years) alternates with the Lyon Dance Biennial (even years), both of these major events are managed by the Biennale de Lyon team. Three major parts make up this important event in the world of contemporary art, for France and the Lyon region in particular: the great international exhibition, Veduta - the programme of productions, residencies and the promotion of art - and finally Resonance, which includes 100 visual arts and performing arts projects. In 2013 the curator of the Lyon Biennial, Gunnar B. Kvaran has chosen and commissioned works of painting and sculpture on the theme of "the narrative".
International contemporary narrative art will be highlighted by talented artists such as Matthew Barney (USA) and Tavares Strachan, Paulo Nazareth (Brazil), Anne Lislegaard (Denmark and Norway), Yang Zhenzhong (China), and David Douard (France).
