Veduta interrogates the  Modern in the light of the Floating worlds of the 14th Biennale de Lyon. From the macLYON collection and in dialogue with the inhabitants and partners of the areas, the exhibitions will generate parallel worlds, places of convergence, spaces for exchange, places for discussion, sensitive experiences and poetic visions.

At the Médiathèque de l'Espace Culturel Pierre Poivre, Chassieu

À l’Écoute des Mondes
In the 1960s, with John Cage and rock and roll, the concert hall disappeared and music was turned into "sound". A story told through an other-worldly, immersive and sensory work, the Handphone table (1978) by Lara Anderson which proposes you to listen with your whole body, crossed by the sound material.


In collaboration with the macLYON
