In 1991, artwork historian Thierry Raspail and Thierry Prat created the Lyon Contemporary Art Biennial, which as its name implies takes location in peculiar years alternating with the Dance Biennial created in 1984. It is a single association that designs, produces and organises those brilliant events.
This global cultural accumulating offers unique help to present day inventive creativity as well as an entire new generation of artists, supporting to publicise their paintings. It is based on a applicable topic: history 1991 to 1995, international 1997 to 2001, temporality 2003 to 2007 transmission 2009 to 2013, and the 2015 occasion launched a new trilogy primarily based at the phrase "current". All creative disciplines are represented: portray, sculpture, photograph and video. The Biennial is made up of 3 separate systems: the global exhibition unfold throughout 4 to 6 locations such as the Contemporary Art Museum and La Sucrière on Quai Rambaud, La Veduta, a cultural laboratory with exhibitions and artists' residencies, and Résonance, the biennial's fringe occasion, committed to the Rhône-Alpes artwork scene with performances and live shows.
