Contemporary art shines between the Rhône and Saône
The Lyon Contemporary Art Biennial has become another major event for art lovers, after the Paris FIAC. Every two years, the city declared World Heritage by UNESCO, therefore welcomes the best of contemporary artists who enjoy to aback, shock, question and surprise visitors through their always iconoclastic work. This year, sixty artists from 30 nationalities flock to the Biennale. They are mainly exposed at the Sucre, this former sugar warehouse, on the River Saône, in the district of La Confluence, which offers its vast halls and elevators installation works particularly well staged in this green gross cement. But the Biennale is also present at MAC Lyon and in Room 15 of the Confluence Museum. The theme of this 13th edition is “modern life”. The artists selected will give heart and joy to express their vision of the world today! The Lyon Biennial ends on January 3rd, 2016.
