The Lyon Contemporary Art Biennial in numbers

[19/09/2005]

 

The 8th Contemporary Art Biennial in Lyon is open to the public from 14 September to 31 December 2005. Entitled “Expérience de la Durée”, this year’s event exhibits the work of 61 artists and includes 25 pieces commissioned by the organisers. This collection will essentially be displayed at 5 different locations: La Sucrière, the Museum of Contemporary Art, The Institute of Conteporary Art at Villeurbanne, le Rectangle and fort Saint-Jean.
At the same time, 70 associated events will be organised at various different points in the city and its surroundings, and in private galleries and institutions

This year, the Biennial’s total budget amounts to EUR 5.5 million. Numerically speaking, the Lyon Biennial is the third largest biennial event in the world with roughly 170,000 visitors of whom close to 40% are foreign, and 1200 are art critics and writers from across the globe.

This year, the Lyon Biennial is exhibiting works from the seventies (Andy Warhol, Gordon Matta-Clark, Yoko Ono, Terry Riley…) alongside contemporary creations (Kader Attia, Martin Creed, Spencer Tunick…). Thus, the overall impact in both spatially and temporally broad. Indeed, the works on display form a powerful collection of sensory experiences and invite active participation from visitors.

In the framework of this event, the art market TV Channel, Artprice TV, is broadcasting a non-stop selection of classified advertisements from the Artprice marketplace.
